5 steps needed for a breast after birth
Step 1: demand of breastfeeding on the family table
experts on breastfeeding Institute of Nutrition and experts from the World Health Organization recommends that put the baby to the breast immediately after birth, even in thegeneric table.From child receives colostrum immunoglobulins, which protect it if happened insemination pathogenic flora during passage through the birth canal.The baby suckles, and it provokes the contraction of the uterus, placenta separates faster.Breastfeeding in the first minutes after birth triggers the normal lactation and helps to create a better psycho-emotional contact between mother and baby.In the case of caesarean section attachment feasible, if epidural analgesia used as.
Step 2: Be aware!
And be absolutely sure that you can and will become feed the baby only breast milk - this is a good start and lactation.Around you can form a group of people (doctors, parents, friends), which will assure that you do not have enough milk, the child is malnourished, not gaining weight ... Remember, they may be wrong.Reliable information you will be given only to children's electronic scales: Weigh the child before and after feeding.If he
weight by at least 70-90 grams, then the milk is all right and the baby to finish feeding mixture is not necessary.In 1-5 days after birth when the milk you have not yet "come", the child enough colostrum - his kidneys can tolerate only those 2-5 ml.And the benefit for his health and for your breast - huge!
Step 3: Update your equipment
feeding need to buy a special bra.It differs from the antenatal that opens only cups, wherein the brassiere is in place.It should also support the breast well and only by 50-80% consist of cotton.For the night feedings can also buy a night bra top or support.As a rule, a little milk from the breast is leaking.Because at night and during the day in a bra insert disc-shaped disposable cotton pads.They are sold in drug stores or any store products for babies.Buy them already when you go to the hospital.
Step 4: calm, just calm
main enemies of lactation - stress and your lack of confidence in their ability to breastfeed.The process of milk production is controlled by the brain and not the chest.Therefore, in the first 3-4 months after birth to exclude any factors that can cause stress: work, irritate your family and friends, TV news.
Step 5: Save beauty breast
During feeding, continue to make a douche.Rubdown chest washcloth and towel.Cream against stretch marks, use only the most well-known companies - do not skimp on the health of the baby!
At the end of lactation, the glandular tissue shrinks, returning to the remains, "doberemennomu" state.And the remaining space is filled with fat or fibrous tissue.This is a normal physiological process.Mammary glands go into "standby" mode, which extends to a new pregnancy.
- Women who have given birth to 25 years, two children, 3 times less breast
- develop cancer Childbirth at least 20-25 years, breast-feeding for at least 6 months, more than two births Lactation- the best prevention of breast diseases
- breast size has no effect on the intensity of lactation.But if due to hormonal disorders developed obesity, the milk can be a little
- If a woman has made 3 of abortion, her risk of developing mastitis increases 7.2 times
- breast augmentation surgery is done better if you no longer plan to have children.
implants Silicone implants for breast augmentation, as a rule, does not inhibit the growth of glandular tissue during pregnancy, do not interfere with lactation and feeding, but only if properly installed.Remove them before pregnancy is not necessary.The prosthesis is positioned over the pectoral muscle, so the glandular tissue increases freely, but at the end of lactation tissue subsides slightly fail, and the prosthesis is in place, and the effect may be not the same.Sometimes the gland during pregnancy so deformed that the implant moves and predict the direction of the proliferation of the glandular tissue is not always possible.Remove the prosthesis is necessary, if there are:
- chest pain
- redness or inflammation
- bloating and swelling
self-breast can be performed before pregnancy or when you have ceased to breastfeed, and menstrual cycleestablished.
Phase 1: inspection linen
Even small discharge from the nipple is left traces on the bra.Therefore, carefully check your bra: it for any bleeding, brown, greenish or yellow spots.
Stage 2: general view
glands Available lower hands.Inspect each breast in the mirror.Check to see if they are the same.If one is only slightly larger than the other - this is normal.Cheerleaders must be a strong difference in size.Make sure that there are symmetrical gland, whether on one level there are, whether moving uniformly, when you raise your hand and leads them over the head.Likewise, check the chest with raised hands.
Stage 3: skin
Look, it does not crack if the skin on the breast, whether the color is uniform, whether redness is not, rash, changes resembling "lemon rind", seals, swelling, dimples or bumps, retracted and shriveledskin.
Stage 4: the feeling of standing
Do it while taking a bath.Right hand examine the left breast, and the left - right.First, the pads of three fingers springing movements touch the prostate, without penetrating in its thickness.This will reveal the formation, beneath the skin.Then proceed to a deep probing.Palpation should be done from the collarbone to the lower edge of the ribs and the sternum to the armpit, including the very armpit.
5th stage: feeling in the supine position
There are two methods:
- squares method - mentally divide the breast into small squares.Groping each square in sequence from top to bottom
- spiral method - palpation is carried out in a spiral, gradually, lap after lap, coming down from the armpit to the nipple.Thus fingertips, moving, make a circular motion.
Stage 6: nipple
examination palpable himself nipple and the tissue beneath it, since there could be a tumor.After palpation gently push the nipple there not out of it yellow or bleeding?If you have ever breastfed, the milk droplets can be released for another 5 years.It is better to carry out self-examination once a month.Consult your doctor if since the last inspection there have been changes.
