This decision is based on recent research showing that these few seconds can have a multitude of benefits for most infants, including a lower risk for anemia. https://www.google.com/search?q=does+El+Camino+Hospital+Mountain+View+do+cord+clamp&rlz=1C1CHBF_enPH876PH876&oq=does+El+Camino+Hospital+Mountain+View+do+cord+clamp&aqs=chrome..69i57j33i160.6434j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

We follow the World Health Organization’s recommendation that the umbilical cord should not be clamped earlier than necessary. Delayed umbilical cord clamping is usually performed approximately 1-3 minutes after giving birth, unless the newborn needs resuscitation (help with breathing or circulation). Delayed cord clamping allows more blood to transfer from the placenta to the newborn, which may improve the iron storage in your newborn for up to six months after birth. https://www.johnmuirhealth.com/services/pregnancy-obgyn-new-parent-services/birth-center-faq.html#post-delivery

Other procedures will be done over the next few minutes and hours. These may be done in the delivery room, in the nursery, or in your room, depending on the hospital policy and the condition of the baby.

Is it okay that my baby roots on everyone without preference

Scary Mommy What is baby rooting?“Rooting” in babies refers to a reflex that happens when the corner of their mouths is touched or stroked, often during or just before breastfeeding. When this occurs, a baby will turn their head, open their mouth, and “root” around for a breast or a bottle in order to eat a little something. And given that it’s a reflex, a baby doesn’t need to be taught to root; it’s just something they picked up in the womb. While they’re in there, they also develop their sucking reflex, which is another important part of feeding in the first several weeks of its life. After around four-to-six months, when the frontal lobe of their cerebral cortex develops, a baby typically gets the hang of this feeding thing and starts voluntarily turning their head towards the nipple — whether it is attached to a bottle or a breast.
