Fact # 2 Breastfeeding should begin within one hour of birth.

Yes, that does seem fast, but you want to get baby adjusted as soon as possible and keep it's blood sugar up. This is especially important, because usually after that first hour, baby is tired and worn out, as well as you. Some people even let their new baby do what is called the "breast crawl" where the baby will actually inch up the mother's abdomen and find the mother's nipple instinctually right after birth.
