Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?
Congratulations! How many weeks are you?
I have a
2 years old baby
Initially some pain and discomfort will be there. slowly you and baby will get grip. Mostly feeding position will be wrong.. that add to pain...as if whole nervous system is pulling. change the position of feeding.
try scissor-hold type..
that whole dark part of it breast should be inside... give good support to baby while latching
scissor hold type?
should hold all tym during feed?
yes.. when u give... initially for few minutes..baby will be too small.. and have small mouth. So...u should squeeze like that a give the whole part to baby. once he started latching , u can leave. Make sure baby nose is not closed by breast.
baby doesn't take feed fully..wat to do?
Kids slowly will get used to... initial 3 months will be very difficult for you and baby. Later on every thing will settle. Let it take how much it wants to.
Is it advisable to use breast pump?
u could use a breast pump to express n feed baby it'll give u some time to recover from sore nipples. also use ghee, try a nipple shield when u feed baby
tried nipple shield...its painful using nipple shieldtoo
then express n feed... eventually once baby gets older sucking gets efficient.. but stop breastfeeding altogether
I read that dipping ur nipple in Epsom salt solution also provides some relief..
I have stopped feeding past 15 days
dolly, please read the post on my page...
thanku sheeba will try doing it
good luck dear... it takes a lot of patience in the initial days to breastfeed, but the returns are immense... don't give up, you can do it... and yes, before feeding, you could apply ice to numb the pain if you want... hope its not chapped...
thanks so much
