Breastfeeding for your baby

Hits: 1208 times

Breastfeeding has some pretty amazing benefits for baby; it can be a tough skill to master for some moms. But use right away to be a best mom. You can use following step to breastfeed your baby properly.

a) Do your research:

Don’t wait until baby is born to learn about breastfeeding. During your pregnancy period you have to do your researches on how to manage breast-feeding properly. Talk to moms who have breastfed successfully before you actually have to do it, and you can grab information from your clinic.

b) Start early:

Holding baby right after birth can help you get off to a good start, so cuddle baby as soon as you can after delivery and give breastfeeding a shot right then.

c) Go skin-to-skin:

This will require some stripping on both your and baby’s parts. Place your unclothed baby on your bare chest when she’s fussy or struggling with feeding. (If you’re modest, cover up with a blanket.) The close contact will calm him and you and trigger him feeding instincts.

d) Learn the signs:

Respond early to baby’s rooting behaviors and you’ll cut down on frustration for both of you. When he gets hungry, you see your baby chewing on his hands, making mouthing motions or turning his head from side to side and bringing his hands to his face. Understand his behaviors is most important when breast feeding.

e) Get through engorgement:

Offer your baby a feeding every two to three hours in the very beginning. If your breasts start to feel engorged  really tight, firm, large and warm, a few days after birth, don’t panic: It’s just your mature milk coming in. Engorgement goes away in a few days, but those rock-hard boobs can make feeding baby challenging. If baby has a hard time latching, hand express or pump a bit of milk before feeding her, to make things softer.

f) Call in the pros:

Breastfeeding shouldn’t hurt, so if you’re having pain, or if your baby isn’t wetting at least 8 to 12 diapers a day, call the hospital, your doctor’s office or a local lactation consultant. It’s important to nip issues in the bud as quickly as possible.
