To be or not to be? The eternal question and the breast pump, pregnancy and childbirth

If you are now in a happy anticipation of the birth of a baby, then I am sure that the thought of the need to purchase a breast pump also occurred to you.

There are only two opinions on this subject: some say that this thing is absolutely unnecessary for anyone, others that the item is invaluable and cannot do without it.

The arguments of opponents boil down to the fact that the child himself copes well with the exhaustion of milk, and nature is so wise that the amount of it (milk) will be what the baby needs. And they are certainly right. Especially if there is enough milk, the child gorges and adds weight well.

But if this is not quite the case, then the breast pump is the way out.

When I was discharged from the maternity hospital, my child weighed 200 grams less than at birth, and in the first month I scored only 300 grams.

What I did was think up: the whole Internet went through in search of an answer, what I was doing wrong, called a breastfeeding consultant, tortured the baby with control weighings, I was silent about liters of tea with milk and hundreds of grams of butter.

Nothing helped.

Mom helped. And breast pump.

Supplement

Set your feet, – said mother. I obeyed. Every day, after each feeding the baby, I decant the milk. Day and night. At least 5, at least 10 grams, but they were not superfluous, because after each meal my son finished feeding not with an artificial mixture, but with natural mother’s milk. It lasted until his 7 months. At 6 they introduced lure and it became easier, and at 7, taking into account the total table, my milk began to be missed. And yes, I never fed the mixture. Totally.


At the same time, it was possible to freeze a little milk, to form a so-called milk bank. And subsequently offer it to the child. Thus, in case of emergency, I could leave the house and be sure that my grandmother would be able to feed the child without harming his health and mood.

Feeding in public places

I have to say, I am not a supporter of breastfeeding a child in humans. Yes, this is a natural process, but, as for me, so too intimate to show it to others. But modern life dictates its own rules and it happens that feeding is not enough without feeding outside the home. For such cases, I always had with me a portion of milk for my child. Ambient did not fall into shock syncope. The child was happy with everything. Me too.

Lactostasis

Unfortunately, this attack did not pass me. Breast pump helped here. It is clear that nobody can do anything better than a child, but, on the advice of a doctor, I first decant the front milk using a breast pump, and the back, thick, clogged glands, just pulled the baby. For a couple of days we all coped with this problem successfully.

However, I would like to draw your attention to the fact that I am not a doctor or a breastfeeding consultant. I’m just a mother who really wanted to feed her baby herself. And for me, the breast pump became an invaluable mother’s assistant who fully justified the money invested in it. And how do you feel about breast pumps?
