Hi, I think you are pregnant, itching if only on the breast area then apply coconut oil, clean the nipples gently with a cotton cloth atleast every alternate day, It reduces itching. If persistent and beyond tolerance, I suggest you meet your gynecologist.

Sadia Rahman

I feel my milk is not enough. What should I do?

#AMA #AskMomStarAnything #BreastfeedingWeek #BreastIsBest
I wnt to breastfeed my 2mnths old daughter maximum, What are the foods I should include and avoid to ensure this I can continue in the long run?
My daughter at night feeds only for 10 mins or 5 mins and sleeps. She pees 10-12 tyms a day and poos 3-4 tyms in a week. Is she getting enough milk? Also she can't take in the whole of areola in her mouth which pple say she is not latching well. Please help

Revauthi Rajamani

Ashwini
You must breast feed your baby exclusively for six months, baby is expected to breastfeed 10 to 12 times a day exclusively. For around fifteen to twenty minutes every two to three hours. Burp your baby after every feed well.

Revauthi Rajamani

Sweety
Good you have enough milk to feed your baby, use breast pads for sometime to help you. Feed your baby for twenty minutes ten minutes each side of the breast every time.

Revauthi Rajamani

Shilpa
Have cozy environment with not much noise. Try to persuade the baby feed for atleast twenty minutes ten minutes each side of the breast, tickle the feet if he falls asleep. Babies do get distracted easily, but try to stay away from very bright lights, sounds. TC

Charu Rathor

Which food we avoid bcoz my baby suffering from colic pain...she always crying in night ...

Smitha Prabhav

Thank you Revauthi Rajamani; for this session. How do you know your baby's full? The reason I ask is because even after he's been burped he asks me to give him feed. I realise he's overfed only if he spits out excess milk. Please help

Fatima Razvi

Hello Revauthi !! I have a 2 months old daughter !! She does not latch on to me !! I tried pumping but the milk supply has reduced !!! I think I have cracked nipples now !! Thinking about nipple shield !! Will that help ??

Nithyaa

Hi mam, in the 16th day of my delivery I got breast absus so I couldn't feed properly in the left side breast.. now for baby 8th month started but still it's very low supply milk also little hard nipple to suck baby because of this baby is not taking milk that too very low it's coming... So what should I do for this problem? Right side breast she is taking milk well.. I'm very much scaring about this.. in future is this cause breast cancer? I'm waiting mam please reply....

Smitha Prabhav

I would also like to know if there's more harm than good by feeding in lying down position?

Revauthi Rajamani

Swetha
Babies do get distracted easily, have a cozy atmosphere around you with not much noise around you. Breast feeding babies do become colicky. Burp your baby after every feed well, the gulp a few amount of air if not latched properly too. This could cause colic too. Certain gassy foods you eat might cause gas in breast fed babies. Try to include garlic, turmeric, herbs in your diet to help you out to deal with gas

Priya Dubey

Very helpful session to all breastfeed moms

Revauthi Rajamani

Sadia
New mothers understandably find it really hard to trust easily in a process they cannot measure. Concerns about low milk supply are the most common concern of a new mother.;Certain signs which could indicate adequate feeding include a good amount of urine output 7 to 8 really wet cloth diapers or 5 to 6 heavy disposable diapers, adequate weight gain.

Mrs.VinithaPradeesh

First of all happy to participate in this discussion.I have few queries about breast feeding..1.what are all things should know about breast feeding for new mother? 2. When does mother should not breastfeed (mom's sick)?3.how to safe/clean our breast without infection during feeding.

Revauthi Rajamani

Hi vidhi
Certain signs which could indicate adequate feeding include a good amount of urine output 7 to 8 really wet cloth diapers or 5 to 6 heavy disposable diapers and adequate weight gain.
Most foods are safe during breastfeeding. A well balanced diet is beneficial not just for breastfeeding but the overall wellness and health as a mother.;Include a lot of fluids, ajwain, drumstick, salmon, garlic, turmeric, pepper, fennel, cumin, fenugreek, bottle guard they increase milk supply.

nelly

Hi mam... My baby drink milk only for 5 to 10 mins at night. So I have purchase electric breast pump store and give that milk at night time. So he doesnt feel hungry.

Revauthi Rajamani

Charu
Please avoid gassy foods, spicy foods, include a lot of garlic and ajwain in your diet. Burp your baby after every feed well. If still colicky get in touch with your pediatrician to get few medicines.

kishu

heena

Hello revauthi ...
Mri baby bottle feeding me ek jagh rah kr ni piti...kya karu

Revauthi Rajamani

Fatima
Yes whole feeding you can wear a nipple shield, between apply chamomile cream or coconut oil to prevent cracks. It will surely heal it. Also though you pump and feed, try to latch with a feeding support pillow often, the more you latch, the more your milk supply be.

Eliza Nandi

#AMA #AskMomStarAnything #BreastfeedingWeek #BreastIsBest hi Revauthi.... My LO is on FM... I Know I cant wean off FM just like that.... What will be your suggestion so that I can offer my baby BM along with FM?

Revauthi Rajamani

Nithyaa
Hey, please I hope your abcess is all cured a d given proper medication. This will not lead to breast cancer stay positive. Now that your baby is given supplementary solid foods don't worry. Keep feeding as long as you can. You are doing good. Don't worry.

Priyanka

How to reduce weight and not decrease breast milk.pls suggest diet plan..

Revauthi Rajamani

Smitha
Few mommies feel convenient in lying down posture feeding. Of possible try not to.. If unable to then burp the baby after every feed well.

Aiswarya Balu

Hi. I had flat nipples. I suffered while breast feeding initially. I used nipple shield. So many of them told that I dint massage by breast while I was pregnancy. Is it really needed? If yes please tell us how massage or what should be done to avoid flat or inverted nipples.

nelly

Hi revauthi.. is electric breast pump safe to use. As it gave me irritating sensation in the first try. My husband shouted for not to use elctric pump. Plz help. How am I suppose to use it

Revauthi Rajamani

Hi Vinitha
Breast feeding is a special bond between you and your baby. No preparation is required, all you need to do is exclusively feed your baby breast milk for six months. Even when the mom is sick doctors advise to feed the baby. After every feed and before feeding wipe your breast with clean wet cloth. That's more than enough.

Ridhi Pareek

I will join office in Sept last week ..how will my mother in law manage with baby for milk. ..because we can't give top feed in excess after ..don't know it will be digest him ..how should be he is trained..mam please help me out..my office time is 9.30 to 6

Revauthi Rajamani

Anitha
Did you weigh her recently. As your pediatrician suggested if a baby pees 7-8times a day, then the baby is well fed. Don't worry about it

Anitha

No did not weigh her, but as i hold for every feed i feel she has lost weight...any suggestion

Revauthi Rajamani

Nelly
Apply some coconut oil or chamomile cream to ease irritation. Hold the breast pump at the right position and express. I suggest you also latch your lil one often as you express and feed.

Revauthi Rajamani

Firdos
Many babies go through short phases of growth spurts where they need to connect more frequently with the mother and the need to breastfeed or just suckle increases during these phases. This does not indicate reduced milk supply as often misunderstood by mothers.Certain signs which could indicate adequate feeding include a good amount of urine output 7 to 8 really wet cloth diapers or 5 to 6 heavy disposable diapersand adequate weight gain.

Revauthi Rajamani

Kishu
No medications can be used. The more you latch your baby the more will be your milk supply. Include a lot of cumin, pepper, fennel, fenugreek, bottle guard, drumstick, salmon, turmeric to improve your milk supply

Revauthi Rajamani

Eliza
Hi, is your lo only in FM dear or are you feeding breast milk in between.

Sukhada Pujari

Hi Revauthi Rajamani, thanks for this session. My baby is 3.5 months n on BM only. But I have to join office as soon as she completes her 6 months. I did take maternity leave 2 months earlier. So what should I start to give her other than BM n when?
My another question is that as soon as I feed my baby I feel hungry, is this normal?

Revauthi Rajamani

Priyanka
There are researches to prove that you lose weight if you breastfeed your baby. Please don't worry about the weight as of now. Eat a well balanced diet, a colourful diet, stay hydrated. Tc

Vasudha

Hello mam....mother of 7months baby....I'm.having giddiness last 10days ....Any remedy or to take care

Revauthi Rajamani

Aishwarya,
Nipple shield, breast pump are good suggestions you may also try breast shells,,, These are plastic hollow shells that can be worn inside your bra. They apply a lightbut;consistent;pressure to gradually draw out your nipples. While this can be worn during your pregnancy, it is best to use it only after childbirth. Do not use the breast shells for more than 30 minutes at a time and never while you sleep.
Use two thumbs on either side of your nipple to press firmly on the areolas. Push firmly against your breast and pull the thumbs away from each other. You can try this technique during your pregnancy and after childbirth as well. You can do this twice a day and then move up to seven times a day.

Chaitanya Kolisetty

How I know the baby is feed enough

Revauthi Rajamani

Ridhi
Breastfeeding provides a warm essential bond between you and your baby which you can do when you return from work. You will need to learn and plan how to perform milk expression’ and store it. ;;Use breast pump, store milk in sterilised bottles with which your MIL can feed your baby.

Eliza Nandi

#AMA #AskMomStarAnything #BreastfeedingWeek #BreastIsBest Revauthi Rajamani mostly on FM. I'm trying to latch him before every feed. Problem is when he is sleeping he didn't open mouth at all tried everything so I can't dream feed him. Also when he is awake n hungry he will suckle but mostly sleepy. If I latch him before every feed what should be the time span? Should I change side post 10 minutes?

Thahaseen

Hi mam. My baby is 3 months 12 days old. Since last 10days on words she is taking milk only when she slept. Iam giving her my milk and also formula milk. If she woke up from her sleep during feeding she stops to drink milk and begans to cry. though she feels hungry she is not drinking my milk. Before 10days she used drinking only my milk and refused to take formula milk but precently she is doing it for both. So kindly Plz zzz help me to get rid of this problem. One more thing can I feed her cearlac this month. Plz mam send reply.

Revauthi Rajamani

Exclusive breastfeeding is more than enough. Your baby is too young. If very doubtful please check her weight on a weighing scale and talk to your doctor.

Revauthi Rajamani

As I already told Certain signs which could indicate adequate feeding include a good amount of urine output 7 to 8 really wet cloth diapers or 5 to 6 heavy disposable diapers, and adequate weight gain.

DIPANWITA SARKAR

My baby sleeps 30 min -1hr longer in; day & night both.how to increase her sleep time.though i give her 4 time solid food including breast milk & formula..

Revauthi Rajamani

Dipanwita
Try to nap during your baby's longer stretches of sleep.
;
- You can assist the sleeping process by differentiating day and night atmosphere like creating a calm, dark environment at night, while letting the sunshine in during the day.
;
- During daytime feedings, talk a lot to your baby, while at night feedings, make the surroundings quiet with as little light as possible.
;
- Remove any item from the sleeping area that could potentially suffocate or distract a baby, cause overheating, including blankets, pillows, stuffed animals, or quilts.

#AMA #askmomstaranything #breastfeedingweek #breastisbest
Hi Revauthi.. Thanks for the session.. I actually have many doubts.. I don't understand regarding empty n full breasts.. Sometimes can't make out the heaviness as everyone says.... My daughter is 3 months now(adjusted age-1 month)... She takes an hr or 2 to feed while bf... She also does not empty the breasts completely.. (I know this as I find green potty more than yellow colour... Its due to imbalance in fore milk n hind milk).. Everytime I feed her, I bf her first n then give formula milk as she's always hungry... How to reduce her bf timing from hour to minutes? Wghat to do regarding other problems where am I going wrong?

Revauthi Rajamani

Hi BP
what's your major concern.. I see that you have repeated the questions from the post.. Do you have any specific issue.

Revauthi Rajamani

Rachana
Breast size does not decide your milk supply. The more your baby latches, the better your milk supply according to the needs of the baby. Eat well balanced diet, stay hydrated, include cumin, pepper, fennel,, garlic, turmeric, fenugreek, bottle guard to improve your milk supply

Zeba Soudagar

Looking forward to it.

Revauthi Rajamani

Krupa
Don't worry about empty or full... It should not get engorged. If your baby pees 7-8times a day, gaining adequate weight then it's a sign of well fed baby. But make sure you feed only on demand. Feed only for twenty minutes ten minutes each side of the breast, this is more than enough.

Sofia Gajwani

Revauthi Rajamani

Hi
Aaisha
Firstly, feed on demand will help the baby take proper feeds. Usually they feel cozy by the warmth of the mother's lap so they tend to fall asleep, keep talking to your baby while feeding in day time, tickle the feet and wake her up. Keep latching frequently to keep up your supply. Once they get used to the bottle they will reject feeding from the breasts, eat well, stay hydrated, add ajwain, cumin seeds, garlic, turmeric, pepper, bottle guard to improve milk supply

In the meantime pls do share your moments, questions, on the app

Revauthi Rajamani

Eliza
Feed the baby on demand for twenty minutes ten minutes each side of the breast.

Revauthi Rajamani

Sukhada
During the first six months of life, a baby is expected to breastfeed 10 to 12 times a day exclusively. Once solids have been introduced at about six months, mother’s milk still remains the primary food until the baby turns one year of age. Therefore it is important to know the introduction of solids is a supplementation and not replacement to baby feeds at mother’s breast until one year of life. ;Its normal you feel hungry after feeding your baby, eat small meals at frequent intervals. Stay hydrated

Revauthi Rajamani

Bulti
If you have consulted your pediatrician and given mixed feeds no worries

Revauthi Rajamani

Bp
After sometime it jus becomes an habit to suck the nipple try to find other ways to put the baby to sleep. If not then they become stubborn and find it difficult to quit.

Hello Revauthi!! I have hypothyroid !! It is under control now as I am taking its medication !! Till when can I breast feed my daughter ??

Revauthi Rajamani

Fatima
They recommend careful monitoring of the breastfeeding;babies thyroid function every three months while the mother is on antithyroid drugs, but because low amounts of PTU cross into the milk, they feel that it is safe for the;baby if prescribed by your gynecologist.

Sania Bhushan

No reply to my question??

Revauthi Rajamani

Hi Sania,
It you who should decide when to stop but two years is considerable. limit night time feeds, give some solids around eight in the evening and milk around nine thirty then put the baby to sleep. If getting up in between try to give sip of water in a sipper so that you can wean the baby from having night feeds.

nidhi bhatnagar

My baby is 7months old and my milk has almost stopped coming.what shud I do to continue breastfeeding till 1year

Revauthi Rajamani

Hi
Please meet a lactation expert, you can consult our expert at baby chakra too... You can feed, don’t worry. Eat well balanced diet, include more of garlic, turmeric, pepper, fennel, cumin, fenugreek, bottle guard to increase supply. Check with your gynecologist for a supplement powder to enhance your milk supply

Revauthi Rajamani

Babies takes at least four months to follow a schedule, so you need to set sleep routine. Feed on demand, that important. Feed every two to three hours for twenty minutes ten minutes each side of the breast.
