I have always understood that when babies nurse they compress the milk out, and don’t actually “suck” like it would.
Looks like we may all be wrong!
Watch this video of an ultrasound showing a baby nursing. The full article can be found at New Scientist.
What do you think about this new information? Will this help lactation consultants better help mothers who have trouble with their babies breastfeeding? Or, will the possibility of a test for babies without a strong enough suction give doctors more power to tell mothers to give up?
