Baby-Led Breastfeeding: the Mother-Baby Dance DVD. Christina Smillie, $59.95 (DVD format, 16 minutes plus over 60 minutes of additional material)

Baby-Led Breastfeeding offers extraordinary footage of babies learning to breastfeed naturally. Like all mammals, human babies are already hardwired to seek out and find the breast. In this video we see just how a baby can do it when we get out of the infant’s way. This lovely DVD shows mothers and babies of various ages, and with a variety of challenges, learn about the importance of skin to skin contact, patience and why a baby needs to be calm in order to learn to feed. A wonderful teaching tool for parents and professionals, Baby-Led Breastfeeding is a reassuring guide to a more relaxed view of breastfeeding.


Biological Nurturing®: Laid-Back Breastfeeding for Mothers DVD. Suzanne Colson, Kittie Franz & Nancy Mohrbacher, $59.95 (28 minutes)

This DVD introduces laid-back positions that help mothers to breastfeed in greater comfort and enjoy their babies more. The DVD shows ethnically diverse mothers and babies in a variety of settings: a delivery room, a postpartum hospital room after a cesarean birth, at home in bed, on a couch, in different chairs, and in an outdoor café. Each environment illustrates a different aspect of how Biological Nurturing makes early mothering and breastfeeding easier and more satisfying. These positions work in harmony with gravity to reduce the "work" of breastfeeding, making it easier to let baby nurse as long as he needs to, while mother achieves complete relaxation and greater oxytocin release.

For mothers, lactation consultants, nurses, midwives, childbirth educators, and others who work with breastfeeding mothers.

Delivery Self-Attachment. Lennart Righard, $33.95

This remarkable DVD depicts a newborn's ability at birth to crawl up to a breast and attach himself unassisted.

Dr. Lennart Righard's now famous study looked at two groups of babies – from medicated and unmedicated births. Observations showed that babies placed skin-on-skin immediately after an unmedicated birth, will almost all find their way to the breast unassisted and latch on to the breast without help.

This six-minute DVD is a must for hospital staff in-service and is a wonderful adjunct for training LDRP units. As part of a prenatal breastfeeding or childbirth education class, this DVD will help parents to consider their birth options and to understand the possible effects of common birthing practices on the newborn.
