Ask Us About… The First Feed

Did you know that all mothers and babies, regardless of feeding method, benefit from the enhanced oxytocin, closeness and comfort of Skin-to-Skin contact following birth and during their first feed?

Wether you are planning to feed your baby breast milk or formula we recommend that, when ever possible, they experiencing their first feed next to their mothers skin.

Once your baby has had their first feed, after the first hour of life, the baby can share skin to skin cuddles with other close family members.

Did you know that mothers who plan to formula feed can also express and store their colostrum in pregnancy to give to their baby for the first feed?

Ask your midwife about the benefits of skin to skin and colostrum and how to incorporate them in to your birth preferences.
