How do I do skin-to-skin?

Take off your bra and have your baby in only a diaper. Place your baby's chest against your bare chest between your breasts. Place a cover over her back. You can also try wearing an oversized shirt and use this to cover her. Let your baby stay on your chest for at least an hour. If she starts to bob around and look for your breast, follow your instincts to help her latch on. Babies benefit from remaining skin-to-skin beyond the first breastfeed, so take every opportunity to hold her this way.
