Do I need and how to bring down the temperature during breastfeeding
Cold breastfeeding flowing with temperature, it is not a reason to abandon the lactation.It is important - to do everything that the infection is not transmitted by airborne droplets child.And take only those medications that are allowed during lactation, if necessary.
Breastfeeding at my mother, caused by an infectious disease, and so is any acute respiratory disease, should be necessarily in a medical mask.
Sometimes it happens that the temperature during breastfeeding is high, a woman just can not get out of bed, well, the baby needs food.In this case, the permissible feed your baby expressed milk.In which, incidentally, has already be present antibodies against these infections, which in itself is beneficial for the child.You can dopaivat baby milk with a spoon.But if you want to replace so the whole breast, then, of course, you need to use only the bottle, but with the correct size of nipples.If the child is still very small size of the hole should be minimal.Otherwise, the temperature of the lactating mother may ultimately result in the refusal to take the breast.After sucking milk from a bottle is much easier.That is why, in order to prevent a gap from the child, many women are trying to find a way to bring down the temperature than during breastfeeding, even if that is not high, up to 38 ° C, just uncomfortable.It should not do it, at least with the use of fever-reducing medicine.
And it's like this here.Fever developed in the process of evolution as a specific protective body's response to infection.In other words, an increase in temperature - is an attempt to suppress the body's development of disease pathogens.Increasing the temperature to 37-38 ° C during the period of colds is a normal response of the body and is an important symptom.
Typically, breast-feeding in the cold with temperatures accompanied by severe headache and muscle pain, weakness, emotional depression.Of course, no one wants to tolerate such a state, and the first medicine to be taken when the first signs of viral disease - antipyretic.Moreover, people often do not even measure before this point.As a result, we deprive the body to cope with the possibility of infection, that in the future "relaxes" the immune system.And this is only one moment.Another - to breastfeed at a temperature as possible, only if milk is not fed too many drugs used mother.Some women just do not know the steps to use drugs including antipyretic.
Shoot down the necessary temperature, but only when its hard to bear.Indeed, the critical adult human body temperature is between 39 ° C.It is strictly forbidden at an elevated temperature to break the confinement to bed, as this may affect the kidney and heart health.It is recommended to eat more warm (not hot!) Fluid: boiled milk, weak tea with a lemon, infusion broth hips and other that allowed to use during lactation.Generally, plentiful warm drink is helpful in terms of prevention of dehydration, and in terms of the drop in temperature, which occurs when a person is a bit propoteet.
Is it possible to breastfeed at a high temperature, if the cause of the heat is mastitis?Oddly enough, but it is possible, and feed including patient feeding.But only if the inflammation is not acquired purulent.In this case, the woman has no need to worry about how to feed or not to feed, but about their own health and the upcoming surgery.
What hurts the breast when feeding and temperature increased?After birth, it happens frequently, until breastfeeding is established.It is necessary to feed the baby more often.Do not decant once again, especially to the last drop.When lactostasis need to try to feed your baby in the correct position relative to the nipple to the "resolved" seal.If it does not work - you can seek help from a doctor or try yourself rastseditsya under warm running water.Someone is easier to do it without hands, and a breast pump.But ask her husband to replace a child, if that does not work to help you, it is not necessary.In the adult human mouth contains many pathogenic microorganisms that, once in the breast ducts through, just cause there is inflammation present - purulent mastitis.And then without surgery can not do.After the stagnation of the milk will be eliminated, the heat subsides.
Rising temperatures may also occur in allergic reactions of the body and poisoning.In this case, remove the cause of abnormal temperature, and not to use antipyretics.
If not so sad, the problem is viral or other diseases, most importantly, that the diagnosis is, and the temperature rose to 38,5 ° C, can take "Ibuprofen" or "Paracetamol" in age dosage.These drugs not only to remove the heat, but a few will improve well-being, as they are also weak painkillers.
