Keep your baby skin to skin with you until after the first feeding
The first feeding sets the pace for next several feedings. In the time right after birth, babies are often awake
and ready to feed during that hour. Take advantage of this special time by asking the nurses to delay the eye
treatment, weight, and routine injections until after the first feeding. Your partner can do skin-to-skin too,
especially if you have had a cesarean and skin-to-skin may be delayed a bit. Ask your nurse for assistance.
