To keep or not to hold the baby with a post after feeding?

Do I need to keep the baby in the post after feeding?

Is there a real need to keep the baby in the post-feeding pillar or are they all remnants of Soviet medicine? In order to get an answer to this question, let’s look at a little in the physiology of breastfeeding.

Where do the roots of the strange advice about wearing a baby post after feeding come from, which gives a huge number of children’s pediatricians?

Among all kinds of mammals existing in the world, not one female after feeding changes the position of the calf’s body in order to get rid of excess air in the stomach. It would be logical to assume that if such a necessity existed and was an indispensable condition for survival, during such a long period of evolution this action must be fixed in the subconscious and be performed at the level of instincts. However, this is not the case.

Probably, it all began with the Soviet times, when the regime feeding was widespread. Maternity leave for mothers lasted 3 months, after which the babies were given to the nursery, where they were fed with a mixture, and then kept in a column so that the child could regurgitate. This helped to avoid overfeeding, because on artificial feeding it is difficult to calculate the individual needs of each child in food.

The tiny stomach of the baby simply can not contain a whole bottle of the mixture, but you need to eat, because the schedule for the next feeding occurs only after 3 hours. In addition, the nipple often had very large holes, because of what the mixture was swallowed with air.

When breastfeeding is applied at the request of the baby, and this procedure can occur more than 4 times per hour. Therefore, my mother simply does not have time to keep the baby in a column every time after feeding. Also, when breastfeeding, it is impossible to overfeed a child, since the composition of breast milk is selected in a way that is suitable for regular applications. And with proper application, the problem of getting air into the stomach can be reduced to nothing.

Unlike artificial mixtures, the mother’s milk is practically not retained in the stomach and, thanks to the enzymes that enter into it, is completely absorbed through the walls of the intestine.

Nature also made sure that the fatty back milk came to the baby not immediately, but only after long applications, lasting more than 20 minutes. Thanks to the sedative components that make up it, it soothes the baby, after which he falls asleep right on his chest during the feeding process. And this is a natural process.

Much more anxiety should be exercised in the event that the child does not fall asleep during the process of breastfeeding. It is necessary to understand what disturbs the baby and prevents him from relaxing and peacefully falling asleep with my mother’s breast in my mouth.



With special attention it is necessary to take care that the baby does not fall asleep on the stomach. Scientifically proved the direct relationship of the position of the child on the abdomen with the syndrome of sudden death of infants.
