Recommendations for breastfeeding to have a much more productive result.

In the first two or three days of breastfeeding, the breasts are filled with milk, which produces heat, swelling, pain and discomfort. To minimize these discomforts, place blocks of ice wrapped in thin cloth on your breast, never directly to avoid damaging the skin. Over time, the skin becomes thicker, does not erode, or cracks.

Before breastfeeding, you must grasp the breast with both hands. One serves as support and the other massages (with the fingertips, in circles) from the base to the nipple to stimulate the descent of milk and unblock what is parked by fats or proteins.

The ideal position to breastfeed is to sit with your back straight to avoid tiredness. You can use pillows or cushions.

Your baby should be in a semi-seated position, with the feet towards the mother’s stomach or back. The important thing is that your little head is well placed to facilitate a good swallow. You should suck the entire nipple and part of the areola to prevent erosion and breast maltreatment.

It is not recommended to breastfeed, lying down or walking, because breastfeeding is an important time to build good eating habits.

Frequency and duration of breastfeeding

Your baby should offer the breast as much as possible within the first half hour after birth. After you sleep a few hours next to you to stimulate skin contact, and as soon as you notice that makes mouth movements looking for your nipple you should put it to the chest. It can not be when you cry because it can be a sign of late hunger.

The main stimulus for milk production is suction: thus, the more times the breast, the more milk you produce. The amount is adjusted to what your child takes and the times you empty the breast a day, the quality also varies with the needs over time.

At first babies can not last more than an hour and a half without eating; Some do it every two or three hours. It is a sign of good nutrition that the baby will wet about six diapers a day and sleep an average of two hours after eating.

Take out the gases

Do it at every breast change or if you are restless or short of breath while breastfeeding. Place your baby upright on your shoulder, hold your head and neck with one hand and with the other gently tap your back.

You can also sit on your legs, hold your head and chest and make gentle circular movements on your back until you manage to expel the gases.

It is not recommended to rest it face down on the lap and massage it in the back, since this contributes to favor the vomit and can be cause of gastroesophageal reflux.

Emotional bond

Breastfeeding favors the appearance of the maternal bond and attachment of the child to his mother. A well-established breastfeeding is an experience that most women report as very satisfying in every aspect.

Breastfeeding allows close physical contact with skin, which in the future favors the child’s independence by increasing their self-esteem. The baby feels safe and protected, which is highly conducive to its development.

For this reason and for the postpartum period of the mother, who is psychologically and physically vulnerable, it is advisable to avoid being around people who undermine their efforts with doubts and criticism.

Father in breastfeeding

The contribution of the father begins by collaborating to make breastfeeding something relaxing, comfortable, respectful and exclusive attention of the mother towards the baby, allowing him to take care of nothing else.

You can also accompany both with caresses and can avoid feeling displaced if you take advantage of other spaces with your child.
