If you want to actually see how to breastfeed by watching a breastfeeding video, there are two lactation videos that we highly recommend.
They both retail for under $60 and run for around 20 minutes each.
Breastfeeding Basics DVD
Available from Amazon.com
This breast-feeding video stars baby experts Dr. William Sears and Jay Gordon MD. It informs, instructs, and empowers the expectant and new mother to breastfeed successfully.
It includes exclusive interviews with world-renowned pediatricians, lactation consultants, and birth professionals and provides expert instruction and advice on why and how to breastfeed.
They also gather the advice of experienced mothers from around the world to share insights and tips. This should help the expectant and new mom on everything she needs to know to fit nursing into their new life.
This video is not only informative, but also beautifully done.
The Benefits of Breastfeeding
Available from Amazon.com
This breastfeeding video starring breastfeeding expert Dr. Ruth Lawrence features real-life women from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and ages accompanied by their adorable, healthy, breastfed babies. They discuss the benefits they and their babies have received from breastfeeding, along with their reasons for choosing to breastfeed in the first place.
This video also addresses up-to-date medical information about breast feeding benefits and why it is the best first food for infants. It's a refreshing change to have a female doctor with firsthand experience discuss this topic.
