In my clinical practice, many mothers suffer because of poor breastfeeding latch. Poor breastfeeding latch is painful for mother as well as harmful for baby as it affects weight gain.
Many mothers learn correct breastfeeding latch in the hospital but once they are back at home the latch starts detoriarating. I have realised the main reason for this is that moms don't know why they have to aim for good breastfeeding latch and what are the ill effects of poor breastfeeding latch for mom as well as the baby.
Mothers generally tend to think that ''Even if its hurting me , I will continue breastfeeding as my baby is getting benefits!" But this is no win situation because baby's weight also gets impacted by poor breastfeeding latch.
This made me realise, the necessity to coach my moms about the relevant details of Breastfeeding Latch and right enough, it made huge difference in their mindsets and moms started working actively on getting better breastfeeding latch for both their and their baby's sake.
The recorded version works very well as new moms are having unpredictable schedule and it is easier if they can watch the class as and when they have time!
Also, they don't miss out on asking me queries as the class has multiple breaks to jot down queries and I personally answer the queries at the earliest!
