Problems with breastfeeding


We will briefly answer a few problems that arise during breastfeeding.

1. Lack of milk

This is a topic that most mothers are interested in. Milk comes to the breast in 2-5 days after birth. The arrival of milk depends on the mother's birth process, how many babies the mother has, and how well the baby can suckle on the mother's breast.

The following factors help breast milk to come faster:
️Easy birth;
️Being in the same room with the child;
️Bring the baby to the breast as soon as possible and as often as possible;
️Avoid bottle-feeding (unless required for health reasons);
️Consultation with a breastfeeding specialist on how to properly breastfeed a baby and how to breastfeed in general;
️The presence of helpers in the mother (husband, relatives, friends).

2. When should a child be fed?

The child should be fed when the child wants. Feed according to the baby’s needs, not by your hour or time. Do not remove your breast during feeding until the baby is full.

3. Pain at the tip of the chest

The main cause of chest pain is that the baby is holding the breast incorrectly.
The baby should open his mouth as wide as possible and bring almost all of the head of the breast into his mouth. The baby's lips should point outwards.
Your breasts should always be dry. If milk is dripping, replace it by placing special breast pads inside the bra. Make sure the breast is not wet.
️Do not wash the breast with soap, the skin may dry out and crack. Instead, take care of your breasts with milk itself or with a special oil while breastfeeding.

4. Is the baby full?

A full child urinates an average of 10-12 times a day.
A child with a full stomach comes in at least 2-3 times (yellowish).
The baby lies down or sleeps happily while breastfeeding.

5. Does a breastfed baby need extra water or vitamins?

A baby who is not breastfeeding does not need water or vitamins.
Breastfeeding requires mental and physical preparation from pregnancy.

6. Low milk content…

️To increase breast milk:
Do not breastfeed the baby by the hour, breastfeed whenever you want.
Do not get tired, the amount of milk in a tired mother may decrease, ask for help from loved ones.
Avoid those who say you should go for a sms, don’t rush into a bottle.
Spend more time with the child, if there are too many guests in the house, relax from them, dedicate yourself to the child.
Sleep with the baby.
During breastfeeding, hold the baby naked with your body.
Increase the number of breastfeeding, give the baby your breasts as often as possible.
Think about milk, think about the baby.
Sleep when the baby is asleep, milk increases during sleep.
Swap your breasts while breastfeeding.
Hug and carry the baby in your arms.
Massage your breasts before and after breastfeeding.
Relax while breastfeeding: listen to music, sit comfortably with beautiful dreams.
Drink special teas made from herbs.

7. What if milk accumulates in the breast?

️Keep your chest in a warm shower, or take a warm bath.
️Milk excess milk using special milkers.
️See your doctor.
️If you suspect pain associated with milk accumulation, see a doctor. Breastfeeding becomes weak during breastfeeding.

8. If it is difficult to breastfeed a new baby in front of your first (adult) child…

Older children often become jealous of their mother during breastfeeding. So when you are breastfeeding, take your older child with you and tell him a story, and if you are breastfeeding, put your older child next to you and talk to him.

9. If a child bites your breast…

Instead of screaming when the baby bites your chest, press the baby firmly into your arms, the baby will not do so again after such discomfort is repeated several times.

10. If you are nervous while breastfeeding…

Listen to soothing classic songs so you don’t get nervous while breastfeeding, think about your baby, watch the water flow, the beautiful scenery, think about the good, relax more than housework.
