What to do for mother during breastfeeding
Breastfeeding mother, as you know, every minute is dear – she has too much to do. But all children are different and often the kid can spend at the breast most of the day, causing mom’s disappointment for wasted time spent. But do not let loose negative emotions and especially, tear the baby from the chest.
This time too can be spent with advantage.
It is believed that the baby sucks milk out of his chest for the first 5 to 6 minutes, the rest of the time he just satisfies his instinct of sucking and enjoys socializing with his mother. Do not deprive him of such pleasure. However, if the feeding lasts longer than 1 hour, and the baby does not fall asleep, it is worthwhile to see a doctor and find out the reasons for this behavior.
Just note that the first 6-8 weeks after birth, it is best to focus exclusively on the process of breastfeeding and not be distracted by anything. This contributes to the formation of lactation (milk production), and its transition, so to speak, into an automatic mode of operation after which one can think about pastime with benefit.
The main thing that a young mother needs is rest. Therefore, the most natural thing that can be done during feeding is to lie down to rest together with the baby.
Mom simply needs a day’s rest, as during this time you can restore your strength, and the next serving of milk will increase significantly. If you really want to, you can occasionally watch a TV, only turn it on at a low volume. Convenient to use and wireless headphones.
Naturally, one should not sit in front of the screen, but as far as possible (at least 2 -3 meters from him). In addition, you can listen to radio, music, even an audiobook.
There are mothers who continue to study on childcare leave. Well, at the time of feeding, you can read, perform tasks from the textbook, listen to the linguistic course, learn foreign words, and so on.
Many women in caring for a child are very lack of communication. Of course, during feeding, my mother is unlikely to go to chat with her neighbor.
But, it remains an opportunity to talk on the phone.
If a young mother does not imagine a life without a computer and the Internet, there is nothing criminal in the fact that during the feeding to visit the “web.” Can I be at the computer with the baby? It is difficult to answer this question unambiguously, it is not yet thoroughly studied.
Naturally, one should observe certain precautions, as with any household appliances, in order to prevent the harmful influence of the electromagnetic field. The observance of these measures consists, first of all, in the use of modern models of monitors. Among the safest ones are primarily monitors with installed protection by the method of a closed metal screen (like a TV), as well as models labeled “Low Radiation” or with a liquid crystal screen.
Well, not to degrade Mom just because she became a mother.

Feeding a child is the same process that you rest and so at this time. It seems to me that you should not feed and do something else.
The vacuum cleaner at us loudly, works, but at us the grandmother or the daddy leave on walk with the child when I clean out in an apartment.

And I do not understand mothers who sit in a computer with a child in their arms. You can do without it until the baby is small.

And you can find out the name of the model of this silent Bosh? Strongly expensive?
We also plan to replace our old vacuum cleaner, but not because the child is afraid (we have not yet borne it, we are waiting more fully in the family in February.), But because our old one practically does not pull.

IlonaZ, your child is no exception, who is afraid of loud sounds. My daughter is also afraid when the technique is loud.
We even changed half of the technique so that she would not be afraid of it. We bought a new juicer, a super quiet vacuum cleaner, a washing machine and a combine harvester.
In general, all the things that work loud and often use.

Yeah, after the birth, everything changes and the body and habits. The article says that the vacuum cleaner is loudly working and for this reason the child cries. It seems to me that all children under one comb is not worth it.
