Breastfeeding is the healthiest and most natural way to feed a baby, yetresearch by http://www.bounty.com has found that mums' intentions tobreastfeed before the birth versus the reality when the baby is born are verydifferent: During pregnancy one-in-two mums (49%) said they intended to onlybreastfeed, but in reality the actual number that solely breastfed dropped byhalf (to 25%).
Before the birth of their baby, nearly three-quarters (73%) of womenadmitted to never being close enough in real life to a friend or familymember to see how a baby 'latches on' to the breast, yet this is probably thesimplest way for mums to learn the technique instead of following diagrams inleaflets, advice in books and mimicking with dolls and teddies in ante-natalclasses.
Bounty Parenting Spokesperson, Faye Mingo said; "Whilst there is lots ofbreastfeeding advice offered to new and expectant mums, some cannot accessthe information and support they need at exactly the right time. This videoclip is not designed to replace health professional support, but simply actsas a useful refresher to help remind new mums of the 'latching on' techniquethrough looking, learning and listening at anytime of day or night.To find out more visit:http://www.bounty.com Contact Lisa Penney - Head of PR Bounty [email protected]
