Newborn Nursery at LPCH

Early Initiation of Breastfeeding

Babies are born with an innate ability and desire to breastfeed. When healthy infants are given the opportunity and time to breastfeed without interruption immediately after delivery, they usually get themselves to the mother's breast and begin nursing without any assistance. It's amazing to watch what a newborn can do!
