Breastfeeding: Have Questions?

To understand whether this is so, follow his behavior. If, after feeding, he releases the breast, falls asleep or is quietly awake, most likely he has enough milk. In addition, note for yourself how many times a day a child goes to the toilet “in a small way” (these events should happen at least 6 times a day) and “in a big way” (from 1 to 8 times).

Pay attention to the contents of the diaper: it should be uniform, soft, without unpleasant smell. If doubts still remain, weigh the infant before and after feeding: then it will become clear to you how much milk it eats.

First of all, your mood and emotional situation in the family will help you – it’s good if you have calm, friendly people who are ready to help your family by your side. Secondly, try to eat correctly and fully, and thirdly, often apply the child to the chest.

It is worth it to try special products for young mothers, which the doctor will tell you about.

This usually happens if the mother has a “tight” breast (that is, there is too much milk in her) or her nipples are irregularly shaped. In the first case, before feeding, strain a little milk so that the gland becomes softer and it is easier for the baby to suck it.

As for the irregular shape of the nipples, try feeding the baby through the silicone pad for a while.

This can happen for two reasons. The first is that milk stagnates in the mammary glands (doctors call this condition lactostasis).

To help you cope with the problem, drink less, put your baby to your breast more often, and decant the milk that remains after feeding.

The second reason (more serious) is inflammation of the breast, mastitis. In this case, you need to contact your doctor, who will tell you what to treat and how to feed the baby.

Usually moms are advised to continue to offer the baby a healthy breast.

First, notice that the child does not catch too much air during the meal, and after eating longer, hold it vertically. Secondly, analyze how and what you eat.

Thirdly, each feeding offer only one breast to the baby. Why? The fact is that different layers of milk have a different composition.

If you feed your baby with the so-called “front milk” rich in lactose, the child may not have enough enzymes that break down this carbohydrate, which will cause his stomach to hurt. In case the situation becomes complicated, consult a doctor.

This problem is quite common, and it is associated with the structural features of the digestive organs in very small ones. The reason for its appearance may be hiding in the fact that the child swallows the air at the time of feeding, or simply overeat. To make life easier for the child, after eating, hold him upright.

If the baby regurgitates often and in large quantities, be sure to consult a doctor.

When it comes to banal colds, do not stop feeding the baby, being careful: wear a mask while talking to him. If you have the opportunity, try to be smaller next to the small one, shifting care for him on the shoulders of loved ones. As for serious illnesses, such as sore throats, feed your baby with expressed pasteurized milk.

To do this, hold it in a water bath for 15–20 minutes.
