The best and suitable food for the newborn is the mother’s milk, it contains all the necessary set of useful elements, it does not cause food allergies, unlike milk formulas. However, not all young mothers know how to properly organize the lactation process, and sometimes even completely refuse breastfeeding.
Breastfeeding is a very important process for both mother and child. Do not abandon it in favor of artificial nutrition, which does not provide crumbs with a whole set of valuable and nutritious elements.
Many young mothers, especially those who gave birth to the first child, after making their first attempt to feed the crumb, face a multitude of t
which will not provide crumbs with a whole set of valuable and nutritious elements.
Many young mothers, especially those who gave birth to the first child, having made their first attempt to feed the crumb, face many difficulties. What to do in order to establish a normal lactation?
- Earlier application to the breast – it is important to begin breastfeeding for 0.5-1 hour after the appearance of crumbs to light. It is at this stage that special neuromecanisms are triggered to establish lactation – the body receives an appropriate signal about the onset of lactation. In a newborn with the first sips appear immune antibodies.
- Give the baby’s breast follows each request; The more a baby eats milk, the more it is produced in the body of a woman. As soon as a crumb begins to cry and asks for a breast, it is necessary for him to give it, and to finish feeding it is necessary when the baby himself releases the nipple.
- Do not dopaivat baby with water and other liquid – breast milk is for crumbs both drink and food, because 80% of it consists of water. Drinking water will take a certain amount in the stomach, and the baby will refuse to eat, which will adversely affect the lactation process.
- It is necessary to feed the baby at night – it is during this period that the stimulating lactation hormone prolactin is produced.
- Should be abandoned using pacifiers – sucking movements in this case differ from breast sucking. With the use of the nipple and bottles, the child may begin to ask less for the breast or refuse it altogether.
- You can not change the mammary gland more than once every 2 hours; otherwise the baby just does not have time to get to the rear milk, which is rich in nutrients, and therefore will not get them. As a result, the crumbs may be underweight and have problems with digestion.
- You can not introduce complementary foods until six months of age – until this age, enough mother’s milk is enough for a baby, which is much more useful and nutritious for him than children’s purees from jars. The introduction of complementary feeding at an early age will simply supplant breastfeeding. Even after the introduction of additional nutrition does not need to completely stop lactation.
