It has come to our attention that a new DVD entitled “BabyBabyOhBaby” (Stark Productions, 2011) has used the terminology ‘Laid-back breastfeeding’ from Dr Suzanne Colson’s intellectual property with no reference to Biological Nurturing®. Although the mothers in the DVD are pictured as exuberant, some of the visual representation portrays mothers lying flat on their backs with their babies lying prone on top. Research has demonstrated that these positions are known to be associated with respiratory distress in infants and may put vulnerable babies at risk. The positions may also be disadvantageous for mothers. Dr Suzanne Colson wishes to disassociate herself from such views in that DVD as she has no involvement with the makers or distributors of it and does not recommend such positions. Please see Dr Suzanne Colson’s book An Introduction to Biological Nurturing New Angles on Breastfeeding.”
THIS VISUAL REPRESENTATION IS NOT BIOLOGICAL NURTURING and any person trained as a CLBC would never suggest that a mother use these positions.
