David Stark, producer of the BabyBabyOhBaby Infant Massage DVD that I reviewed a few years ago, recently came out with a breastfeeding DVD called BabyBabyOhBaby: Nurturing Your Gorgeous & Growing Baby By Breastfeeding. I've been meaning to review it for months ever since David sent me a copy...but I like it so much I keep lending it out! (In fact, it's currently a few thousand miles away at my sister's house, helping her prepare for her first baby.)
But I can't wait any longer. I love this DVD. It is short, beautifully filmed, and covers the most important topics in a light, warm, engaging tone. It focuses on right-brained learning via images, narration, and emotion, rather than overloading the viewer with facts and technical jargon. The BabyBabyOhBaby Breastfeeding DVD covers all the essentials, including breast crawl and newborn attachment behaviors, latch, positioning, laid-back baby-led breastfeeding, and feeding cues. It leaves the viewer with confidence in themselves and trust in the process.
The DVD was filmed in high-definition. Mothers, fathers, and babies are all simply dressed in white on a clean, white background, allowing your focus to be on the mother-baby breastfeeding duet, rather than on hair or clothing or background decor. This keeps the film from feeling dated or too tied to a particular location.
The mothers and babies come in a delicious range of colors, sizes, and shapes. And so do the breasts! We see lots of breastfeeding, and it's very much out in the open. So useful for a mother trying to figure out this new dance.
And the best thing about the DVD? It's only $26! If you want to buy the infant massage DVD too, the pair is just $39. Click here to purchase. Running time: 28 minutes.
