A teaching video about breastfeeding, mother's milk, and early contact with the newborn. We see women at ease with their bodies and mothers and babies treated with respect for their skills in nourishing and seeking nourishment. Topics covered in the 45 minute video include: attachment, positioning, sore nipples, blocked ducts, engorgement, mastitis, sleepy babies, increasing milk supply, night feedings, breastfeeding premature infants, pumping and hand expression, breastfeeding twins and toddlers, and the role of support people and prenatal caregivers. Breast is Best was written and directed by obstetrician Gro Nylander, National Coordinator for the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative in Norway, and produced by the Norwegian Film Institute. This mainly new version of Breast is Best is revised and extended to also demonstrate e.g the importance of skin-to-skin contact, even in caesarean section, easy feeding at night, step by step feeding cues and latching on, toung-tie, carrying etc. etc. You may here watch a 7 min. short version. The full version of Breast is Best may be ordered from: HEALTH-INFO, Video Vital AS, P.O. Box 5058 Majorstua, 0301 Oslo, NORWAY. HEALTH-INFO@videovital.no
