In the first weeks, and often the months of their lives, small children need a long stay near her mother’s breast. At the same time it is very important that the mother who feeds the baby with her tasty milk does not get tired with such long and frequent feedings. Today I propose to consider the postures in which to feed the children most conveniently.
Such an important moment depends on the convenience of the mother as the correctness of the attachment of the baby to the breast, in which the milk will be more efficiently separated and, therefore, the baby will be satiated faster.
I nursed my daughter for a year and three months. During this time, tried many poses in search of the perfect. The most convenient thing for me was to feed the baby in a lying position, tummy to tummy. Thus, I had a wonderful rest from household chores, and even sometimes fell asleep with my daughter.
When feeding while sitting, you can use a pillow, putting it under your back. Thus, the body can relax during feeding. One of my friends during the feeding of her son puts a stool under his feet. And my sister feeds her daughter, rocking while in the rocking chair. From such a swing, the baby quickly calms down and falls asleep.
I suggest you remember your experience in putting a child to your chest. What poses are most comfortable for you?
