When a new baby is born into the family, the two  biggest questions are what the baby will eat;  breast or bottle? And where they will sleep; in their  own room in a crib, or with the mother. This lecture will present research and views of  these two issues.

Sasha was born two weeks before her due date and  weighed 5 ½ lbs.  She was a sleepy, quiet baby.   When Sasha’s mother, Helen, took her home, she was  fearful and uncertain.  Sasha seemed so small and weak.   Helen’s mother said that Helen had been the same size  and also very sleepy. She told her to wake Sasha for  breastfeeding every two to three hours. If she got tired  trying to suck, breastmilk could be placed in a bottle with a  soft nipple and Sasha could eat that way until she grew  stronger.  In a few weeks, Sasha was a strong, alert baby weighing  almost 8 lbs. She breastfed every four hours.

 Ganesha was 18 when she gave birth  prematurely to 3 lb Xyra by C-section in a South  African hospital.  Xyra was taken to an upstairs  premature baby ward.  Ganesha cried and told her  grandmother that she thought Xrya was going to  die.  Ganesha’s grandmother smiled and said, “No,  she will not die if you feed her your own  breastmilk, a drop at a time on her tiny tongue, all  day long.”

Ganesha climbed the stairs each day to see Xyra and  sit in a chair by her incubator.  She squeezed the milk  from her breasts and put it in a tiny sterile cup given to  her by the nurses.   Holding Xyra, she dropped the milk onto her tongue.   For several weeks, Ganesha came to see Xyra and
