Child Development / / August 12, 2017
Nature is arranged so that any woman, in principle, able to bring up her child.And in any woman's body lies a program that allows him at the right time to produce a certain amount of breast milk.So the main task of the future and held my mother - not to interfere with the program to work.
First - a psychological attitude.Our brain controls all the processes in the body, including lactation.So, if you give him a precise and unambiguous command - to produce milk, he will fulfill it.If you are constantly in doubt: do I want if I can, your body is not able to understand what you need.Fear and doubt lead to failure and, eventually, to stop lactation.Therefore, the earlier you start to adjust itself to the breast-feeding baby, the better.
second - is to prepare the breast for feeding.Ideally, it is necessary to prepare the breast from the beginning of the second trimester of pregnancy, but if that time long past, it is better to start late than never.Preparing to Breast-feeding is very simple.It should be every day, preferably two times, for a few minutes to massage the breasts and nipples with a rough towel.This will become coarsened nipples and further reduce the risk of cracks and mastitis.It is also very good, if twice a day, you'll wash the nipples with cold water.
behavior after childbirth
crucial early attachment of the child to her breast.Ideally, it is desirable to do immediately after the birth of a baby, so he gets the necessary food for him, and thus triggers milk production.Even after a cesarean section when the baby bring on the third day, it is possible to establish lactation process.If you can not make the baby to the breast immediately after birth, then try to do it immediately as soon as you have an opportunity.The sooner this happens, the better for the baby and for the woman.
after childbirth should not eat a lot of junk food - it distracts from the strength of the body of lactation.It is much better if you'll eat salads, fruit permitted.The protein in the form of lean meat, cheese, cheese should also be present, but in moderation.The water should be drunk best mineral, aerated.After delivery, and the next day you need to drink at least 2.5 liters of water per day (as during childbirth a woman loses a lot of fluids, and it is necessary to restore).
But since the beginning of the third day to finish fifth, drink all the time, but a little - about 1.5 liters of water per day.Since at this time the milk arrives, and if you get involved in drinking milk may be too much, which could lead to stagnation and mastitis.These days it is better not to drink tea, juice, fruit compote - they only hinder the body.Various laktogonnye funds should not be taken without consulting a doctor, and not earlier than 20-30 days after birth.It is set in the first month of lactation, the milk produced by that amount which is necessary to the child.
Feeding on demand
about feeding on demand is to talk separately.Very often we hear from women who were unable to breastfeed, that in the first days of the baby behaved as follows: sucked breasts - and 20 minutes later again requires and so all the time.Women are afraid of it, they think it is a sign of lack of milk and give the baby a bottle with the mixture.As a result - the amount of milk gradually decreases, and eventually comes to naught.
kid doing something right, it needs to display at the moment the amount of milk the breast should be sucked up, which he does.During the first 40 days after birth of the child primary goal - as often as possible to suckle to thereby obtain the necessary amount of milk it.Therefore, it is normal, if the kid asks his chest up to 20 times a day, and can breastfeed every hour or even more frequently.
But do not think that it will last forever.Most kids sucked the breast begin to eat 2-3 hours during the day, giving mum 6-8 hours of rest at night.In general, the smaller the woman intervenes and tries to regulate the feeding process, the better.
stagnation, cracks, mastitis ...
first attack, which is waiting for mothers to breastfeed unprepared - cracks.Afraid this and weaning is not necessary.Cracks can be lubricated with special ointments, oily solution of vitamin A, Vitaon, use special protective silicone pads on the chest.Before breast-feeding you must wash, usually after a few days when the skin on the nipple coarse; the cracks are.
If your baby gets the breast "on demand", he is willing, cheerful, sucks normal and active, my mother rarely occur congestion in the chest.This is usually the case with those who have the amount of milk sharply at odds with the needs of the child.Here is just racking plays a negative role.It is possible to disengage such a quantity of milk, which is enough for several babies and one child that does not eat.As a result of the fact that there is a lot of excess milk may appear stagnation or mastitis.
At the time of the establishment of lactation, it is necessary to carefully monitor the condition of the breast.Before each feeding massage the breast from the bottom up toward the nipple.If you find a seal, let your child suck out exactly this chest to get rid of the seals, lactostasis.Today, selling a variety of different homeopathic remedies and ointments that help to cope with a woman lactostasis if it all still appeared.
much worse if lactostasis moved to mastitis.There can not do without the help of a doctor.Keep in mind that to stop feeding the child at this time is not necessary.
As the child grows, it needs more and more milk.And to get it, the baby from time to time change the number of breastfeeding.This usually occurs in 3, 6, 9 months and after a year, if you continue to breastfeed.Within 5-10 days, the baby suddenly sticks to his chest, he forgets about all modes and again begins to demand the chest 15-20 times a day.Increasing the required volume of milk to him, the child calms down and returns to the familiar and convenient mode of feeding, generally even increasing the time between meals.
basic rules of breast-feeding:

- in the first month of feeding should be paid for the duration.The kid sucks a major amount of milk for 5-7 minutes, but if it then ceases to suck, then maybe he was just too weak.Ideally, the child should suckle for 10-15 minutes;
