I know several mothers who, due to some incomprehensible reasons for me, refused to breastfeed their children. For me, refusal to breastfeed is tantamount to abandoning intimacy with the baby. And also the reluctance to help your baby stock up on health. Actually, I think if you decide to have a child – be kind – work on it!
Let’s clarify right away – when a mother doesn’t breastfeed according to indications – this is a completely different matter. I am truly sorry for them. Here, even speech can not be. If the mother after the surgery or something with health or with the milk itself. Of course, the child first of all needs a healthy mother. Without milk, in extreme cases, he will cope.
I am amazed at those mothers who, of their own free will (mostly because of laziness), do not feed their children.
Reasons for not feeding:
– I don’t want to refuse to eat
– it hurts
– I don’t want to wake up at night
– I do not want to feed 8 times a day, giving each time for 20-40 minutes, the child eats the mixture faster
– after 3 months the milk itself went away
– chest sags
I do not know how for you, but for me none of these reasons is objective. Now there is so much information about breastfeeding, so many available doctors – professionals – just feed. Nature, probably, knowingly gave us such a function? By the way, in many cities there are even conditionally free centers of help in solving problems with breastfeeding!
Yes, a cracked nipple when feeding is far from the most pleasant, but good, our breasts are not one, but two. In addition, in any pharmacy there is always a remedy for sea buckthorn oil to the well-known bepantena. With the stagnation of milk – it hurts too, but why allow it?
It happens, this happens due to lack of knowledge. Although no, rather more due to lack of experience and practice. But many very successfully cope with it and feed for several years.
I want to look good!
Moody such desire. Each of us wants this, but not at the cost of abandoning breastfeeding. So that the chest does not hang down – you need sports, massaging and supporting underwear. All this is very affordable.
Or breastfeeding takes time to spend on yourself? Yes, no question – give the child to raise a nurse or grandmother and take care of yourself all day and night. One wonders, why did they even agree to give birth?
To be honest, I went through fire, water, and copper pipes in breastfeeding. There were periods when I was extremely sorry for myself and I wanted to quit everything. But I understood that the baby calms down very well at the breast.
And nothing will ever replace the measured snuffling of my blood in my hands during the feedings. And, in consequence, both a joyful smile and pulling hands to my mother and, of course, hugging from 4-5 months.
Intimacy with a child is happiness. How can you give it up?
