Are there any disadvantages in breastfeeding?
On the wave of universal support and promotion of breastfeeding, I would like to pay some attention to those things that some consider negative aspects of breastfeeding. What problems are waiting for the nursing mother, with what she will have to face and what to resist?
Although both doctors and society as a whole are very positive about the system of breastfeeding, mothers who feed children with artificial mixtures are still quite a lot. And sometimes they are very vigorously trying to resist the numerous ideas of natural motherhood:
- prolonged breastfeeding;
- feeding the child on demand;
- joint sleep.
Loss of breast milk for a child can be safely aligned to a biological catastrophe, as the tremendous benefits of breastfeeding for a baby have been repeatedly proven. This is more robust immunity, and push into the intellectual development, and the establishment of a close emotional connection between mother and baby.
But for moms, and those who practice artificial feeding, and those who prefer the natural, it is important to understand one thing: breastfeeding is not a panacea, not an ideal solution to all issues and problems. It also has its own complexities, its drawbacks and drawbacks.
Even before birth, you need to psychologically prepare for breastfeeding
The main condition for successful breastfeeding is the desire of the mother to breastfeed her baby. And to this process, emotionally, as well as information, it is necessary to prepare before the birth of the child. Many mothers are confident that since breastfeeding is a natural process, everything should go from the very beginning like clockwork. Therefore, they refuse to think about what will happen after the child is born. It seems that nature will tell, but in reality it is very far from the truth. Practical experience shows that breastfeeding quite often does not develop on its own, and a woman needs to prepare in advance, gather information, tune in psychologically, to be ready for taking care of the newborn and breast-feeding.
If it was possible to hope for the transfer of experience in caring for a child from previous generations, now the problem is also observed in this aspect, since in the past decades there have been cardinal changes in very many issues of upbringing and GW.
