Chest and dummy.


The article is written in response to a discussion by nursing mothers of the topic "Chest and Dummy" on the forum of one of the well-known Siberian sites. Each child's age has its own problems and questions, but only a few cause such contradictory relationships as this one. In general, the very fact that the discussion of this topic took place, it seems to me a positive signal that moms are looking for new information, are trying to find out all the pros and cons, the good is the choice, and the information too, just stretch out your hand. Most nursing mothers in the discussion of the topic agreed on the fact that a baby needs a dummy if "her child wants and asks". But everything remained within the framework of discussions of their own examples and their children, in the fashionable style of "IMHO", and almost without appealing (with the exception of two or three moms) to modern research and advice of specialists. And the concluding and summing up phrase, I quote: "It does not work that way, you change it into a commercial", reflects the views of the society on the questions of feeding and caring for the child ... Preparing for the birth of the child, the future mother rarely asks this question: "Do you need a baby dummy?". The same was, I admit, although the option of feeding my child with a bottle and a mixture was not even considered. I regularly bought a couple of wonderful pacifiers in the drugstore, and lovingly equipped them with a baby changing table ... But they, fortunately, did not come in handy. Only much later, often wondering why all mothers have pacifiers and bottles at home, I began to realize that it sits deep in our minds. A small child and a dummy is an ordinary and familiar situation for us, an integral part of being. There is such a word ... PRIBAMBAS. Exactly! Gadget! I do not know exactly what it means. This told me one dad, in response to my question: "Why do your child need a pacifier, if he is a breastfeeder?". The question is simple, but he caught the pope by surprise, and after a moment's thought, he answered: "Gadget ..." Look into any ward for newborns - you'll see babies lying quietly in plastic boxes with nipple pins. It is here that the nipple enters the stage. And it would be better to take these babies to their mothers. Open any children's book. Happy and pink-cheeked babies with pacifiers in overwhelming majority. Illustrations with children sucking their mother's breasts are much less common. The same is true of many parent sites - babies with nipples in their mouths ... Go to any children's store. Dolls with babies with nipples are so familiar that it seems that Mother Nature "has surrendered its position," and babies are born with dummies in their mouths! My girlfriend has a doll, if she gets a pacifier from her mouth, the doll starts to make the sounds of a child's crying, and pauses when the nipple is inserted back ... How to know, maybe toy manufacturers did not suspect that a little girl, playing this doll, and losing in childhood, the experience of motherhood, remembers - to calm the child from crying, you need ... give him a pacifier! Then this girl grows up, and sees on the street children with pacifiers in her mouth. And her younger brother sucks too. Of course, growing up, and preparing for the appearance of her first-born, she will choose the best child for her long-awaited child ... So, slowly and imperceptibly we came to the fact that most of the children grow up with rubber soothers-pacifiers. We will not now consider cases in which the use of a nipple during breastfeeding is justified. This is very rare, and requires an individual approach. We are talking about the human cub, as a mammal creature designed to suck on the mother's breast, and calming down with it. How much "harmless" sucking dummies?
In order not to be unfounded, let's turn to the research of specialists. Not so long ago, Brazilian researchers interviewed more than 600 young mothers who gave their babies a dummy. It was found that toddlers sucking a pacifier, to 3-4 months, refused to breast 3 times more often than children, to whom mums did not give a pacifier. According to studies published in the authoritative medical journal Pediatrics, sucking on the nipple increases the risk of ear infections in infants by 40%. Also, the risk of caries increases. MV Trunov and LM Kitaev write in the book "The Ecology of Infancy: The First Year": "Look at the baby sucking the pacifier, his eyes, as a rule, are half-closed and turned to nowhere." A peculiar self-immersion. it all looks a bit like breast sucking, but only the human mind, capable of reducing the sucking of the mother's breast to a mechanical act, can hold the identity between maternal sucking and a pacifier.For a kid, such "self-depressions" have an effect, primarily a decrease in activity in relation to the outward appearance The world that he must learn and capture during this period, decreases the search activity, the tendency to research, and above all, does it lead to the habit of satisfying his needs in a surrogate way? Practice shows that in the first months of life such a surrogate satisfaction of natural needs is taken for granted.
Maybe for life? If we finally understand that breastfeeding is not just pumping milk, we need to understand that the difference between breast sucking and pacifiers is the same as between full-fledged sexual intercourse and masturbation. "... I already want to finish this article. , there are still important points that moms need to know in order to answer the question: "Do I need a baby dummy?" Does the mother's breast adequately suck the dummy?
Using the preceding quotes: exactly as much as a full sexual intercourse replaces masturbation. Using his observations: exactly as much as replacing self-complacency alone (cigarette, television, computer ... there are many options), calm with a close and dear person. Let's look at this in more detail. Sucking a pacifier is not identical to breast sucking, based on different forms and methods of sucking. Take and compare the shape of the female nipple and pacifier, even if resembling the breast. To date, until the nipple is created, completely replacing and simulating breast sucking, no matter how trying to persuade us in this company manufacturers. When sucking the breast, certain muscles of the face work and the technique of sucking is fundamentally different from the technique of sucking a pacifier. When sucking a baby's breast, hormones of pleasure are produced - endorphins. When sucking a pacifier - no. That's why the babes suck so that they can suck, trying to suck out any real pleasure, but they get only his pitiful resemblance, which does not bring complete comfort and pleasure from life. Very revealing was the case that occurred in the summer outside the city, when two kids (one and a half years old), climbed into a hornet's nest, and bitten by wasps, ran up with tears to their mothers, to calm down: one - chest, the other - a dummy. The kid, who received the breast, calmed down after a minute, and after five already ran away to play. Another, with a pacifier, and in the arms of my mother, sobbed and could not calm down for 1.5 hours! All this time he furiously sucked a pacifier. Do not give a dummy endorphins ... The action of the hormone endorphin is that it acts on the stress hormones - cortisol and cortisone, reducing their levels. This hormonal background is formed in the child from the moment of conception and up to 3 years of age, and further is determinative for the whole life - attitude to the world, depression, experiencing diseases and stresses, and much, much more. But this is already a very large topic, which is now described by many psychoanalysts. We will not go into it deeply. It is important for us to understand that it is natural for a child to calm down and fall asleep with a breast in the mouth, and not with a pacifier. Why do many children combine sucking breasts and pacifiers, and continue to suck their breasts for up to a year, while other children "very much like" a pacifier, and refuse to breast, being quite babies? Everything depends on the child's desire to live and survive, from his life-setting. All children have different. Some kids, despite everything, bypassing the unnatural behavior of their mother, continue to suck their breasts, getting the minimum they give. Without requiring protection, comfort and comfort from the mother in the form of more frequent sucking, the baby evaluates the mother from the point of view of potential danger, and does not feel to her a feeling of complete trust. It's safer for him to calm down and fall asleep with a "rubber soother," and breast only to ask for food and satiety. This, of course, is a better option than giving up a breast in favor of a pacifier, which, unfortunately, occurs much more often. In any case, the kid regards his mother as not being able to protect him and create complete comfort. Will a healthy psyche of a person who has been accustomed to live in a situation of increased danger since early childhood? .. If the baby requires (and receives) the breast "often" - more often than once every 2-3 hours, falls asleep and sleeps with the chest, calms down with the breast , then the child trusts this mother completely, he is under her protection. Under the protection of a loved one, a close person giving food, drink, warmth, love and security, so necessary for a small, growing man !!! In complications with breastfeeding, which are experienced by nursing mothers, one of the reasons may be sucking dummies:
· Cracks, abrasions, nipple injuries; Lactostasis, mastitis, engorgement, etc .; · Lack or excess of milk; · Small set in weight; Lactase insufficiency, foamy stool; Biting the baby's chest, arching under the breast and crying; Breastfeeding. Finish the article you want a wonderful quote from the book of William and Marty Sears "Your child from birth to two years": "If the child cried, and you instinctively pulled not to the child, but for a pacifier - throw it!" Prugova Galina, a consultant on breastfeeding.
