7. Hold Off on the Bottle
According to breastmilkcounts.com, it’s best to hold off introducing the bottle until four to six weeks, if possible. This will allow your milk supply to get up and running.
8. Help Your Baby Engage
Newborns can be very sleepy, which isn’t really conducive to nursing. If you notice your baby is dosing, tickle their feet or massage around their mouth to engage their sucking reflex. You want your baby as awake as possible when it comes to the business of eating.
