Breast Crawl

It is a long video, but about three minutes in is where they start to show the actual breast crawl.

Babies that are left to their own devices and placed between a woman’s breasts, will crawl toward the breast and latch on themselves.  They get a better latch and you get to start breastfeeding on a better note than if the latch is forced.

I cannot WAIT to see this in the birth in a few weeks and also have this happen at the birth of my next baby.

  1. Wow, What a beautiful video! I am definitely going to post it on my blog as well 🙂

    I remember being amazed when I learned about the Breast Crawl and the breast bounce that babies do to latch themselves onto the breast. We watched a video on helping breastfeeding women with latch issues and it was amazing how they could be solved by patiently letting the baby crawl/bounce its way to the breast by itself! very AWEsome, thank you for sharing.

  2. My LC taught me something like this. She actually had my hold Miles in between my breasts sitting upright and just let him sniff around. He then head dives basically for the breast. Its awesome!
    I totally love the breast crawl.and its so totally real. Just like any other animal.
    They’ll find their way up even if placed on the tummy.
    Mother nature knows what she’s doing! 🙂

  3. I love this video, and own five copies of the DVD to share with clients 😀
