First feedings


After you and your child have rested for several hours, it's time for a serious matter - teaching him breastfeeding. Care for these first feeds will return to you a hundredfold. Helping your child to take the breast correctly, you prevent or minimize problems with cracking of the nipples and engorgement of the mammary glands, and he receives excess milk. We recommend that mothers, who are breast-feeding for the first time, get visual help from a breastfeeding consultant during the first few days. Reading about how to feed and try to translate read into the language of real action is much more difficult than having a person next to you who can help. And it's also a little easier to immediately teach the child to take the right position when feeding and take the breast correctly, than to eradicate the skills of wrong sucking days or weeks later. In fact, it is reasonable to call a breastfeeding counselor before the birth.

Take the position convenient for you
The first lesson in caring for a child is that the comfortable position of the mother should be comfortable for the child too. You must be relaxed so that the reflex of the milk can work. The most convenient for feeding you will feel if you sit in an armchair with armrests. It's also great to use a baby boob. Place the pillow on your back, on your knee and under your arm, which will hold the baby. If you sit on an ordinary chair, then use the stand under the foot to raise the knee, while avoiding the strain of the muscles of the back and arm when you press the baby to the chest. If you are sitting in bed, put a few pillows under your back to sit higher. For one more pillow, place under your feet, on your knee and under the arm that holds the child. Since sometimes a baby likes to spend a long time at the chest, you will not be trapped, assuming an uncomfortable position.

First feedings

  1. The first questions about breastfeeding in the hospital.
    Almost all mothers want to breastfeed their babies. But the first problems arise, most often, in the first days after childbirth, in the hospital. How to help to establish this natural process? Will I be able to breastfeed a baby? Any woman who has a breast can breast-feed. Colostrum is present in all women who have given birth, it already exists at the end of pregnancy. The tide will be necessary, regardless of the outcome of childbirth,

  3. Principles and methods of feeding and feeding-related recommendations
    In many countries in the WHO European Region, there are no own guidelines for feeding infants and young children. Nevertheless, in some countries they exist: for example, in Denmark, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom. In the former Soviet Union, the need for such guidelines is recognized long ago (the last time they
  4. Organization of feeding: feeding on demand, rhythms
    On-demand feeding is the cornerstone of natural feeding. This is what distinguishes it from the widespread in the middle of the 20th century breastfeeding according to the regime. However, many mothers see this as a call to anarchy and constant attachment to the child and sometimes refuse to follow it without even experiencing it. Meanwhile, on-demand feeding is very convenient for the mother, if it is
  5. First changes in the weight of the child
    In the first few days after childbirth, the child may lose up to 10% of its weight at birth. With the arrival of milk, the child begins to gain weight. Within 10 days he must return to his weight at birth. Children who are fed from birth on demand, lose less weight in weight than children who are fed on schedule. In addition, they quickly gain their former weight. The child must dial his
  6. The first weeks at school
    The first days and weeks of stay in school, the days when the child entered a new situation for him, the establishment of a new system of relations with the teacher and comrades, the assimilation of the rules of behavior, the first successes and failures are perhaps the most responsible for the entire schooling period. On how the child will be introduced into his first serious duties, how will the development of the entire school system take place,

    Medunica: Reflections Very Important Praise! I did not even suspect how they support! At me now very difficult vital period. It seems that only to howl at the moon is the time. And go to the Kuvshinchik, but start to praise yourself. Look, and already the mood is different! It greatly increases self-esteem. And for many of us it is understated. We do not like ourselves most often. And why? For me it was a discovery on
  8. The first three days
    The first 3 days are heavy and interesting at the same time. You need to learn to breathe. It's easier when a normal-sized abdomen - when it resembles a protruding watermelon, and most importantly, does not want to retract during an extended exhalation, then there are already difficulties. But it does not matter. Arterial pressure is measured regularly - there is nothing to boast about, it is constantly increased. Pulse is frequent, rhythmical and well palpated

    Just start - and make it simple. If you are going to use mapping thinking at once for a big project, an important report or a complex scientific text, keep in mind that you will have to work simultaneously on two "building sites": substantial and methodical! This can lead to overload, disappointment and poor results. So listen to my advice: do not start
  11. The first results of the demo- graphic policy
    The measures of social policy, first of all put in place since the beginning of 2007, "The Law on Mother's Capital", apparently begin to act. In the memory of readers, perhaps even a famous excitement in maternity hospitals across Russia in December 2006, when many women in labor deliberately postponed childbirth and gave bribes to doctors, just to give birth after January 1, may have been imprinted. The trend continued: in
  12. PLANTS - FIRST MEDICINES
    The first medicines were plants. For a long time people have sought to find a "grass of immortality" that can cure many diseases. The Babylonian tradition speaks of a man named Ethan. He learned that the healing herb grows high in the uppermost sky. Ethan sat astride the eagle and climbed high into the sky. Three times they made their flight. For the first time the eagle did not have enough strength. The second time Ethana
