SWITCH THEM UP OR ASSIGN EACH BABY TO A BREAST???

Posted on February 9, 2017. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

When breastfeeding your babies be sure and change the babies back and forth from breast to breast (each feed). Nursing babies look up at Mom as they feed and switching them back and forth gives each infant’s top eye a chance to work, exercise and practice focusing. Assign a child to only one breast for each feed and the lower eye does not get the chance to mature and develop. Switching is also better for working on head and neck control.

Also, due to demand and supply on each breast and the chances that your babies do not have similar strength abilities for sucking, each breast will respond to the demand each baby is applying and you could end up looking lopsided.
