5 tips for breastfeeding newborns
It is advisable to start breastfeeding the newborn within 30 minutes within 30 minutes and begin to contact the mother’s skin for more than 30 minutes, while helping the newborn to suck the nipples.
The neonatal feeding reflex is the strongest within half an hour after birth, and then gradually declines, and then resumes after 24 hours.
Benefits of early milk opening: 1. It is beneficial to breast milk secretion, which can not only increase the amount of lactation, but also promote unobstructed milk ducts and prevent the occurrence of milk swelling and mastitis.
2, newborns can also promote bowel movements and fetal excretion by sucking and swallowing.
3. The sucking action of the newborn can also stimulate the mother’s uterine contraction reflexively, which is conducive to the recovery of the uterus, reduces the chance of bleeding and postpartum infection, and is more conducive to the early recovery of the mother.
4. Early feeding allows children to have more motherly love, and can meet the psychological needs of both mothers and infants as soon as possible, so that the baby notices the warmth of the mother, and reduces the strangeness of the baby when it comes to the world.
TIPS: Clean the breasts before breastfeeding: During pregnancy, the breast will secrete some moisturizer or milk after delivery. In addition to sweating, dirt may accumulate on the nipples.
Before breastfeeding a baby for the first time, edible vegetable oil should be applied to the dry scales of the nipples to soften the scales and then wash the nipples with warm water.
Eryi’s pre-milk and post-milk are fed in each feeding, and the composition of the milk changes accordingly.
Milk is generally divided into pre-milk and post-milk, which contain different nutritional ingredients.
Ex-milk explanation: When feeding, the milk sucked out first is called “ex-milk”.
Nutrients: Fore milk has a thin appearance and replaces water and protein.
If you eat too much pre-milk, you will get the water and protein you need. Therefore, babies who are replaced by pure breast milk generally do not need to replenish water within 4 months after birth.
After milk explanation: The milk after the former milk is called “after milk”.
Nutrients: After milk appears white and thick, lasting light, lactose and other nutrients.
Provides many skin tones to make the baby feel full.
Therefore, do n’t rush during breastfeeding, do not squeeze out the first breast, or change the other side without correction. You should allow the baby to eat as much as possible, both before and after milk.Provide comprehensive nutrition.
TIPS: Babies with diarrhea should breastfeed the first half of the breast, that is, the first milk; the second half should be discarded, so that the baby cannot eat the postpartum milk with excessive fat content.
Sanyi breastfeeding on demand Why advocate on-demand breastfeeding? Don’t strictly limit the interval between feedings, especially in the first few weeks after your child is born.
Newborn babies don’t eat the same amount of milk each time, so sometimes children get hungry an hour after feeding, and sometimes children don’t seem to want to eat as much as 3 hours apart.
These conditions are natural, and each baby is unique, and the amount of food varies, so it is advisable to breastfeed as needed.
Benefits of on-demand breastfeeding This method of on-demand breastfeeding can not only drain the milk in time, but also stimulate the pituitary gland to secrete more prolactin through alternating sucking, so that the milk volume continues to increase, and it can also prevent the mother fromNecessary tension and anxiety (excessive tension and anxiety can inhibit breast secretion through reflex mechanisms).
How to breastfeed on demand As long as the baby wants to eat, he can feed it at any time; if the mother’s milk arrives, and the child is willing to eat, you can also feed it, without being constrained by whether the “scheduled time” has arrived.
The newborn has a stomach capacity of only 30 ml, and the amount of milk it can suck each time is only about 20 ml.
With a small amount of milk and a short stay in the stomach, the child quickly becomes hungry.
Therefore, it is normal to breastfeed about two hours.
TIPS: Feeding 8?
12 times are our recommended feedings.
The baby will not extend to 2 until about 2 months.
Feeding milk once every 3 hours, at this time his stomach capacity has reached more than 100 ml, and the length of time that the put-in milk stays in the stomach has been extended.
The effect of Siyi mouth milk containing the receiving position and the bad connection will cause the baby to ineffective suckle, the mother’s milk cannot be emptied smoothly, the breasts swell, and eventually the milk secretion is reduced.
The baby can’t eat milk and always cry frequently.
The baby will suck hard when it can’t suck the milk, and a negative pressure will be formed in the second half of the mouth, squeezing the nipple.
Over time, it can cause nipple cracking and even cause bacterial infection.
The process of sucking milk from the baby’s breast properly is a process of chewing and sucking: the baby’s mouth contains most of the mother’s areola, and the breast tissue under the areola (including the milky sinus site) is also included in the mouth.
The baby’s small mouth tightly seals the areola part. When he sucks, the tongue pulls the nipple to the hard palate.
In this way, milk is sucked out during rhythmic sucking and squeezing.
The baby sucks a lot. Only when the baby puts pressure on the breast tube behind the areola can he suck the milk; only by putting the nipple into his mouth, he can effectively close the opening of the breast tube without spilling milk.
Wuyi protects the nipples of the breast from cracking for the first few days of feeding. The mother will feel that the nipples are a little irritating and will disappear after a few seconds. This is normal.
However, if you feel that the nipple pain does not regress, it will gradually increase, indicating that there may be a crack in the nipple.
The nipple is a sensitive part of the human body. Once a crack appears, it will feel abnormal pain. Some mothers have to give up breast milk replacement because they can’t stand the pain.
Method 1 to prevent nipple cracking, do not take when the baby is particularly dry.
2. Pay attention to the correct feeding position.
3. Frequently massage the breasts to stimulate reflexes.
4, when feeding, be sure to stuff most of the areola into the baby’s mouth.
5, after each breastfeeding, dry the nipple and squeeze a few drops of milk to apply evenly on the nipple, which can play a role in protecting the nipple.
6. Do not use soap on the nipples.
7. Do not pull the nipple out of the baby’s mouth after breastfeeding. Use your fingers to gently press the baby’s chin to prevent the baby from sucking and then gently withdrawing from the nipple.
8. Mothers should wear loose cotton underwear and bras. When the bras are changed, they should be replaced in time.
The swelling of the breasts begins around the fourth day of breastfeeding. The mother’s breasts generally secrete a lot of milk, and the breasts become significantly stiff. At this time, the newborn will feel that the breasts are too hard to adapt and even suck the nipples.
The new mother swelled uncomfortably because her milk could not be drained.
Method 1 to improve swelling, before the newborn eats milk, first apply a warm towel to the breast to soften the breast.
2. Stand in the shower and shower your breasts with warm water.
3. Gently massage your breasts with your hands and try to squeeze some milk to reduce swelling.
And help the newborn put the nipple in the mouth, after a while the baby will suck and suck.
4, put the newborn in front of the breast, gently push the breast up, so that the nipples can be protruding, the newborn can suck milk; at the same time, it also relieves the mother’s breast swelling and eliminates.
