Newborn Breast Crawl

Watch this less than one-minute-long video of babies who, when placed on top of their mother's body moments after birth, writhe and wriggle to maneuver their way to finding their mother's breast. Left alone, without any assistance, babies usually succeed in latching on and starting to nurse in less than an hour.

This video reveals how strong the instinctive drive is and how capable and strong babies in their ability to successfully find the source of their nourishment and survival—and how babies are already building strong feet, legs, and deep core strength.
