Hi. One of my friend delivered a baby boy before two days. Baby is on oxygen as he was weak and did not cry after birth. Pls pray for him. My friend 's nipple are jot popping out and so baby is unable to feed. I asked her to do cocoa oil massage. Can any of u suggest anything else

Please ask her to seek advise of Lactation expert...they will help her to deal with the situation. Even my gal dint cried initially..later she never stopped. Hope things will be fine. Is it normal delivery? My prayers are with baby. #Baby Chakra Priya Sood . Please keep us updated SUKAINA MIRZA

I wish the best for baby. For flat nipples many nurses use an empty syringe to make it come out. Also pls ask your friend to express milk. It also helps in formation

Can you add Sonali Shivlani

Yes it's a normal delivery

I agree with Priya. For me also... they asked me to do syringe method for nipples. Sometimes during normal delivery... baby will do potty and also they will inhale that liquid. Due to which they will be under NICU with oxygen, heart rate monitoring and light. Oh... that beep sound and light is so irritating for baby. And that moment ...I don't want to imagine also. Don't worry. Baby will be fine. What are the reports saying...? Once the infection is down...baby is active and taking feed... they will shift to mother's ward and injection are continued. ( tats how my daughter have gone through). see whether expressed milk can be given.

my prayers for the baby... syringe method helps..ask ur friend to massage also otherwise nipples will break out while using syringe method...

lots of blessings 💞💞

There is a product available in the market called the nipple puller. It is much more gentle than the syringe. A breast pump can also be very helpful as it will accomplish two things - help form the nipple and also your friend will be able to extract milk which can be fed to the baby if he is not able to feed right now.

Babu has been transferred to mothers ward now Pls pray for them

Good to hear this.. just be regular with doctor. Follow the prescribed medicine. And  no household remedies. Feed baby as much BM as possible. Baby will.be fine.. don't worry.
