Breastfeeding in the first hours - Global Health Media (

Within the first few hours after birth, most healthy newborns will instinctively move to their mother’s breast and attach on their own. This video shows early breastfeeding initiation through the journeys of 3 newborns and ways to ensure the success of this vital practice for any new mother and baby.

NZBA has previously produced the DVD, The First Breastfeed Natures Way.  With fewer services having DVD players we recommend the website Global Health Media, and in particular, their video Breastfeeding in the First Hours.
