20Breastfeeding: The First Hour After Birth Is The Golden Hour

If you were planning to nurse your baby then it may help to know that the earlier you start, the better, according to BabyGaga. The publication notes that lactation experts feel the best time to start nursing is within the first hour after birth. Nursing within this timeframe can release hormones

which can help with bonding and allows the mother’s uterus to contract.

This will also help stimulate the milk, which will be thicker and more golden in color during this time.
