How Do I Do It?

Your baby is born with a 'sucking reflex' which is chiefly brawny in the first few action of life.

  • Hold baby with her tummy towards you and with her body in a above-board line. Brush your nipple alongside anti her lips to encourage her to open her mouth.
  • Make sure she takes the areola in her mouth as well as the nipple or else the milk won't flow.
  • Your breast holds two types of milk: foremilk which is thinner and quenches her thirst, and hind milk which is thicker and helps her to put on weight.
  • Let her feed for as long as she wants. If you think she has complete but she has not at large the breast (maybe she's fallen asleep), gently push your barely handle into the area of her mouth to break the suction.
  • At the next feed, offer the other breast first.
  • Problems

    • Engorgement - Most customary 3 or 4 days after

      birth. Your breasts overfill with milk, creation them feel heavy and hard. Your milk construction will maybe alight down after a few days; try expressing a barely milk already feeds.
