Supplement for breastfeeding

As a rule, mothers give babies a mixture when they think that the baby lacks breast milk. But, before offering the crumbs a bottle, this assumption should be checked.

Watch the baby: when he stops sucking and calmly falls asleep, it means he ate even if his lunch did not last long. Signs of “malnutrition” look different: the baby is worried and crying even after feeding, and his mother constantly looks for her nipple; after drinking all the milk, does not take away his lips and continues to greedily suck on an already empty breast.

To understand the extent to which the baby lacks breast milk, weigh it several times before and after feeding – the difference between the two indicators will show you how much he ate. Compare the numbers with the prescribed amount of the portion that your pediatrician has installed.

Doctors rely on this number for each particular baby, based on their age, weight, and state of health. For example, a child aged 1 month and weighing 4 kg eats about 700 grams of milk per day, and if a mother feeds him every 3-4 hours, a single portion is about 100 g

If it turns out that the baby really gets less than it should be, first try to give him breast more often. In response to increased sucking, the woman’s body produces more milk, and if you are faced with a temporary “deficit” (hypogalactic crisis), frequent attachments to your breasts will help correct the situation. “Crisis” periods occur in all young mothers about once a month, and after a few days they stop.

At this time, do not rush to feed the baby with the mixture. The more often you give the baby a breast, the sooner you will cope with the situation.

In that case, if you often put the child to the breast, but the milk you no longer becomes, and it is not gaining weight. Before feeding your baby, do it very carefully, not forgetting that the artificial mixture is a necessary measure, and your goal is breastfeeding.

  • Feed the baby after he has emptied the breast, and better both glands. Otherwise, he may refuse to suck at all when he realizes that drinking milk from a bottle is much easier. For the same reason, it is better to give the additive from a spoon, and not from a bottle.
  • Start and finish breastfeeding.
  • After the crumb has been supplemented by your milk, without changing its position, offer it a mixture from a bottle with a tight nipple, and when its contents are finished, immediately give the breast one more time.
