Everyone knows that breastfeeding (HB) is good for babies. Only lazy does not scream at every corner: Moms! Go on the feat! The country needs healthy children! You must, must, it is difficult, but necessary.
The main mistake of such propaganda is to outline the difficulties of the GW in advance. But in fact there is nothing easier than natural breastfeeding. Can this process not be natural? No idea, but …
When I became pregnant, I already knew that I would breastfeed my baby only until it was necessary for him. And I also knew that it would be easy and natural. But for some reason I knew about it practically alone.
Maternity hospital …
I gave birth to my first child during the transition period, when the children were already left in the ward with the mothers, but the medical staff had only been rebuilt to the fact that the mothers themselves take care of the children, so I strove to take the reins of government over our experienced hands.
And imagine, on the very first day, the nurse, feeling my chest, said: You don’t have milk, let’s give the baby a mixture or decant to come. The girls from the ward did just that – one began to express, the other gave the baby a mixture, because he did not eat enough.
Looking at me, they practically twisted their fingers at the temple – they say, what a careless mother, does not think about the child. And I just thought about him and knew for sure that the milk will come by itself, it is worthwhile to apply the baby to the breast more often. And that’s it! Nature will do the rest.
The medical staff tried to press me even so that I fed on the clock, and gave only one breast in one feeding. But I did not heed any of their sensible advice.
Consequences of the advice of experienced doctors
Three days later, Mom, who began to decay, so swollen breasts that she just climbed to the ceiling when the nurses helped her not to earn mastitis. And at the second mummy the child completely passed to the bottle.
I replaced the colostrum with full-fledged milk, and the baby quickly began to gain weight, began to eat less, sleep more and stay awake. And even here I received practical advice – to decant, and then the chest will swell and be like a neighbor.
Until now, with horror, imagine what it would be if I succumbed to the recommendations of others!
During pregnancy, I lay on conservation several times and was familiar with many future mothers. So, when we already met with the strollers, most of them did not breastfeed the babies at all – there was no milk, and some were abandoned to feed when the child was one or two months old – she was tired of expressing herself!
Simple advice for future moms
Cute future moms! Milk is, it can not be when you have a baby! Squeezing is needed only in one case – if due to, for example, the illness of a mother or baby, their contact is impossible. There is simply no other good reason for pumping, no matter how much the breast pump manufacturers insist on …
There is nothing better, more pleasant and more natural than breastfeeding, if you just walk up to it … just!
