The basic rules for successful breastfeeding.
WHO / UNICEF recommendations are met. Every woman should know that her milk is the most complete food for her child in the first 6 months of life, and according to separate observations, during the first year of life. Therefore, she should strive to follow the rules of successful breastfeeding in order to ensure the health and best conditions for her baby to grow and develop his body. · The joint maintenance of mother and child in the same ward. · The correct position of the baby in the breast, which allows the mother to avoid many problems and complications with the breast. If the mother did not teach this at the maternity hospital, she should invite a breastfeeding counselor or childcare instructor and learn this specifically. · Learning to properly attach includes not only the correct position of the breast, but also the mother’s ability to control the baby’s behavior on the breast and to take the breast correctly. · Feeding at the request of the child. It is necessary to put the baby to the chest for any reason, giving him the opportunity to suckle when he wants and how much he wants. This is necessary not only for the satiation of the child, but also for his psychoemotional comfort. For psychological comfort, the baby can be applied to the breast up to 4 times per hour. · The duration of feeding is regulated by the child: it is not necessary to tear off the child from the breast before he himself releases the nipple, if he holds the breast correctly. If the baby has changed position during the feeding process and has taken the breast incorrectly, it is necessary to take the breast and again offer the child to take it. · Night feedings of the child provide a steady lactation and will protect the woman from the next pregnancy to 6 months in 96% of cases. In addition, night feeds are the most complete. · Lack of supplementation and the introduction of any foreign liquids and products. If the child wants to drink, it should be more often applied to the chest. · Complete rejection of nipples, pacifiers and bottle feeding. Sometimes one bottle feeding is enough to stop the baby from taking the breast correctly. If necessary, the introduction of an additional feed should be given only from a cup, spoon or pipette. Each use of the bottle confuses the child’s manner of grabbing the breast. · You should not shift the child to the second breast before he sucks the first breast. If the mother hurries to offer the baby a second breast, he will not receive the late milk, which is rich in fats. As a result, your baby may have problems with digestion: lactase deficiency, frothy stools. Continuous sucking of one breast will ensure proper functioning of the intestines. · Elimination of washing the nipples before and after feeding. Frequent washing of the breast leads to the removal of a protective layer of areola fats and the nipple, which leads to the formation of cracks. Breast should be washed no more than 1 time per day during the hygienic shower. If a woman takes a shower less often, then in this case there is no need for additional breast washing. · Refusal of frequent and control weighings of the child, conducted more often 1 time per week. This procedure does not provide objective information about the usefulness of infant nutrition.
It only irritates the mother and leads to a decrease in lactation and the unreasonable introduction of the supplement. · Elimination of additional milk expression. After 2-3 weeks after birth, with properly organized breastfeeding, milk produces exactly as much as the baby needs, so there is no need for pumping out after each feeding. Senturing is necessary in case of forced separation of the mother from the child (for example, the mother leaves for work, etc.) · Up to 6 months the child is exclusively breastfed and does not need additional feeding and supplementation. For individual studies on breastfeeding, without prejudice to his health, he can stay until he is 1 year old. · Support for mothers who breastfeed their children up to 1-2 years. Communicating with women who have a positive breastfeeding experience helps the young mother to gain confidence in her abilities and get practical advice to help with breastfeeding. Therefore, young mothers are advised to contact the maternal breastfeeding support groups as early as possible. · Education for child care and the technique of breastfeeding is necessary for a modern mother so that she can without unnecessary trouble with the convenience for herself and for the baby to raise him up to 1 year. Breastfeeding counselors can arrange care for a newborn and teach a woman how to breastfeed. The sooner a mother learns motherhood, the less frustration and unpleasant moments she will suffer along with the baby. · Save breastfeeding until the child is 1.5-2 years old. Feeding up to 1 year is not a physiological period for stopping lactation, therefore, when weaning, both mother and child are affected. The correct position of the child in the chest. The first condition for successful feeding is the correct position of the baby in the breast, which greatly facilitates feeding, ensures milk flow and helps prevent inflammation and cracking of the nipples, as well as engorgement of the mammary glands. Here are the signs of proper feeding: The position of the mother and the child’s body The mother is comfortable, she is relaxed. The body of the child is pressed against the mother, facing the chest. The head and body of the child lie in the same plane. The child’s chin touches the breast. The reaction of the child The child takes the breast when he is hungry. When touching the breast, the child opens his mouth and seeks to seize it. The baby is licking the breast. The baby does not release the chest. Emotional proximity Mother is calm, confident. The mother looks at the child, strokes him, in addition to the contact “skin to skin” Contact “eye to eye” Breast condition The skin looks healthy. The nipples are swollen, stretched forward. During feeding the breast seems round. After feeding the breast is soft. The sucking mouth of a baby is wide open. The lower lip is turned out. The tongue is curved around the chest. Cheeks are round. The areola is more visible above the child’s mouth. Slow deep sucking with pauses. You can see or hear swallowing. The child himself let go of the chest
