Ordinary cleanliness is all that is essential. It has been conclusively proven that baby consumes 2/3 of the entire nursing during the first 5 minutes. It is then that he suckles hard and quickly. It is then also that he takes in considerable quantities of air which often cause distress.

    When baby has nursed 4 to 5 minutes he should be taken from the breast and placed over mother's shoulder, abdomen down, then gently patted for a few moments in order that he may bring up whatever gas is within. This should be repeated 2 or 3 times during a 20 minute feeding.
