This is a great video - baby crawl breastfeeding (nudity)

You can start at like 1:50 in, to the actual baby.  I think this is an amazing way to start BFing.. the baby gets the skin to skin contact, massages the tummy to help the uterus, and finds the breast and starts nursing all on its own!  I admit I teared up a little when the baby finally got a latch hehe

 How amazing!!! I didn't get to start breastfeeding any of my 4 within the first hour. Our dd was 3 hours old before she got to the breast. Wit our twins, one was 24 hours old and his brother 3 days. With our youngest he was 7 days old before he got to try to breastfeeding and now 17 months later he still nurses.

Beautiful, Beautiful.

I encourage all the moms I counsel to start out breastfeeding this way. It is amazing what our babies can do!

Oh wow! This is truly amazing! Unfortunately, I had to wait about an hour to nurse as well.

I think it's great how natural this is!  There's no medical interventions, no ones checking temps or blood pressure or any of that stuff.. its just mom and baby, well, and a ton of spectators hahah

If I were to ever have a 3rd kid (eek lol) I honestly think this is the way I'd love to start out!

wow that's amazing!!!!

Thankfully with Gabriel I DID get to nurse within the first hour. i told the nurses, i want to nurse right away. As soon as everything's cleared down there. I passed the placenta, Gabe was wrapped up and measured, I sat up, he was given to me. I stared in awe at him for about 5 minutes, then put him to the breast. that took about 35 minutes :)

The hospital I gave birth in doen't take baby from you at all until after he/she has nursed. My DS came out, was placed on my chest, dried off a little and then put inside my gown. I had him for almost 3 hours before he was take to be cleaned up. It was so nice.

I saw this video a few weeks ago and it has inspired me to write a new birthing plan for my next one. I absolutely love this video!

Wow! That is awesome!! Thank you for sharing!!
I didn't get to nurse Delilah until about 3?4? Hours after she was born. I asked them while we were still in the delivery room and they said she was ok not to nurse yet. :(
If I had known this I would have demanded it!
