If your baby isn’t keen on attaching then start by lying skin-to-skin and let your baby get used to being close to you. They often start by nuzzling your nipple. Just wait and watch. It can take time for this stage. You can encourage them by dripping some milk onto your nipple, or hand express a few drops. This stage may take some days before they decide they want to try feeding.

You can read more about expressing in our leaflet. You may also like to re-visit positioning and attachment.
