The beginning of breastfeeding can come with many questions, especially for a new mother. And even if it is a natural gesture, it takes a little practice and some advice.

Midwife Sara CaƱamero (MaternNatal Clinic), collaborator of, explains how to breastfeed the baby correctly. In this case, it focuses on the more classic pose, the cradle pose.

The first thing to keep in mind is to learn to detect when the baby wants to eat. For this, you have to try to understand the early signs that the baby is hungry, and not wait for the crying. As soon as we notice something more nervous or he constantly puts his hand in his mouth, it can be a sign that he is impatient to eat.

One of the most classic breastfeeding postures is the position of the cradle. In it, the mother sits and takes the baby in her arms as if she were cradling him. To breastfeed the baby correctly using this position:

- It is very important that the mother has her back well supported on the chair or armchair.

- The baby's tummy and the mother's must be in contact.

- The baby's head should be at chest level.

- The baby must open his mouth wide to grasp part of the areola of the breast and not just the nipple.

- The baby's cheeks should be rounded, they should not turn inward.

- The sound that we should hear in the baby is that of swallowing, and not that of clicking.

Remember that a good latch on the baby to the breast can guarantee a successful breastfeeding. And if the baby sucks a lot of air, it can cause colic.
