Good Latch

What is a latch?

  • Latch is the way a baby attaches to the breast.
  • A good latch is important to:
    • Make sure the baby gets enough milk
    • Avoid sore nipples
    • Help your breasts make more milk

Many moms and babies may need a little help and reassurance in the beginning. Remember, it’s okay to ask for help.
