The basic rules of successful breastfeeding.
Meets WHO / UNICEF recommendations. Every woman should know that her milk is the most nutritious food for her baby in the first 6 months of life, and for individual observations and for the first year of life. Therefore, she should strive to fulfill the rules of successful breastfeeding in order to provide her baby with health and the best conditions for the growth and development of his body. · Joint maintenance of mother and child in one ward. • The correct position of the baby in the chest, which allows the mother to avoid many problems and complications with the breast. If the mother has not been taught this in the hospital, she should invite a breastfeeding consultant or a childcare instruction instructor and learn this specifically. • Training for proper application includes not only the correct position of the chest, but also the ability of the mother to monitor the behavior of the child at the breast and properly take away the breast. · Feeding on demand of the child. It is necessary to put the baby to the breast for any reason, giving him the opportunity to suckle when he wants and how much he wants. This is necessary not only to saturate the child, but also for his psycho-emotional 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: do not tear the baby from the breast before he releases the nipple, if he keeps the breast properly. If the child in the process of feeding changed position and took the breast incorrectly, it is necessary to take the breast and again offer the child to take it. · Night feeding of the baby provides stable lactation and will protect the woman from the next pregnancy to 6 months in 96% of cases. In addition, night feeding is most valuable. · Absence of dopaivaniya 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 feeding from a bottle is enough to stop the baby from taking the breast properly. If it is necessary to administer supplementation, it should be given only from a cup, spoon or pipette. Each application from the bottle introduces confusion in the manner of the child grabbing the chest. · Do not shift the baby to the second breast before he drains the first breast. If the mother hurries to offer the baby a second breast, he will not get the late milk, rich in fats. As a result, the baby may have problems with digestion: lactase deficiency, foamy stools. Long sucking of one breast will provide a full work of the intestine. · Elimination of washing of nipples before and after feeding. Frequent washing of the breast leads to the removal of the protective layer of areola fat and nipple, which leads to the formation of cracks. Chest should be washed no more than 1 time per day during a hygienic shower. If a woman takes a shower less often, then in this case there is no need for additional breast washing. · Refusal from frequent and control weighing of the child, conducted more than once a week. This procedure does not provide objective information about the full nutrition of the baby.
She just makes her mother nervous and leads to a decrease in lactation and an unreasonable introduction of complementary foods. Exclusion of additional expressing of milk. 2-3 weeks after birth, with properly organized breastfeeding, milk is produced exactly as much as the baby needs, so there is no need for decantation after each feeding. Expressing is necessary in case of compulsory separation of the mother from the child (for example, mother's going to work, etc.). · Up to 6 months the baby is exclusively breastfed and does not need additional nutrition and lactation. For individual studies on breastfeeding without prejudice to one's health, he can stay up to the age of 1 year. · Support for mothers who breastfed their children until 1-2 years of age. Communication with women who have a positive experience of breastfeeding, helps the young mother to gain confidence in her abilities and get practical advice that helps to establish breastfeeding. Therefore, young mothers are encouraged to contact the mother's support groups for breastfeeding as early as possible. · The training of childcare and breastfeeding technology is necessary for a modern mother, so that she can without additional hassle with convenience for herself and the baby to raise it to 1 year. To arrange care for newborns and to teach a woman the technique of breastfeeding may consult breastfeeding counselors. The sooner the mother learns motherhood, the less disappointments and unpleasant minutes she will bear with the baby. · Save breastfeeding until the child is 1.5-2 years old. Feeding for up to 1 year is not a physiological term for cessation of lactation, so both mother and child suffer from excommunication. Correct position of the baby at the breast. The first condition for successful feeding is the correct position of the baby at the breast, which greatly facilitates feeding, ensures the supply of milk and helps prevent inflammation and cracking of the nipples, as well as breast engorgement. Let's list the signs of proper feeding: The position of the mother's body and the baby's mother is comfortable, it is relaxed. The body of the child is pressed to the mother's face to the chest. The child's head and body are in the same plane. The child's chin touches the chest. The reaction of the child The baby takes the breast when he is hungry. When you touch the chest, the child opens his mouth and seeks to grab it. The child licks his breast. The baby does not release the breast. Emotional intimacy Mother is calm, I'm sure. The mother looks at the child, strokes it, in addition to the contact "skin to skin" Eye contact in the eye Breast condition The skin looks healthy. Nipples swollen, extended forward. During feeding, the breast appears round. After feeding, the breast is soft. Sucking baby's mouth is wide open. The lower lip is turned outward. The tongue is curved around the chest. The cheeks are round. Areola is more visible by the mouth of the child. Slow, deep sucking with pauses. You can see or hear swallowing. The child himself let go of his chest
