How do you assess latch?

  • The latch is comfortable and pain free.
  • Your baby's chest and stomach rest against your body, so that baby's head is straight, not turned to the side.
  • Your baby's chin touches your breast.
  • Your baby's mouth opens wide around your breast, not just the nipple.
  • Your baby's lips turn out.
  • How do I know if my car has latch?

    Your vehicle owner's manual will tell you if LATCH is present. You can also look for the built-in latch anchors which are usually marked by a symbol or tag on the vehicle's seat. LATCH-equipped vehicles will have two lower anchors and one top tether anchor installed in each LATCH seating position.

    The LATCH system assigns a numerical score of 0, 1, or 2 to five key components of breastfeeding for a possible total score of 10 points. Ideally, the quality of the infant's latch should be assessed twice over a 24 hour period by two different healthcare providers and documented.
