Babies are born with an instinctive “stepping reflex” where if their feet touch a flat surface, they’ll start “walking.” They can’t support their own weight, but in the right situations, can give themselves the leverage to push themselves along a mother’s abdomen after delivery. This video shows the breastcrawl of Jen's son. He was placed on Jen's abdomen, rather than chest after an unmedicated birth. The entire breastcrawl took approximately 45 minutes. This video highlights the innate capability of newborns to seek the breast without intervention. The noises in the background, which may be noticeable, are the birth team putting away equipment (which was not used). Jen is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant at Ardo medical, Inc. Ardo promotes holistic breastfeeding practices, including getting breastfeeding off to the best start.
