- Offer the breast on demand
That is, offer the breast when the babies show signs of being hungry. If babies are sleeping, it will be difficult to hold on the chest but was “on time”.
If you cry because they are too hungry, neither will do well. No need to stick to any timetable. In fact, the success of breastfeeding is at odds with the clock.
- Do not limit the time that babies are breast
The time will not be the same for all babies and everyone needs more or less depending on whether you are nervous, if easily distracted, falls asleep while breast.
- Breastfeeding in both breasts so they are emptied regularly
You can offer one breast first, until the baby just let go. And give it the second after if you like. The next shot begins laying over. Some babies were filled only with a chest and given the other in the next shot.
- Empty Chest
When the breast is not emptied at all can arise some problems such as mastitis. In these situations, breastfeeding is often interrupted because there is a danger of causing an abscess: if the baby wants more milk, you should empty the leftover of the breasts with a pump. Furthermore, the pituitary receives the message that “one does not produce much milk” and this can lead to the end of lactation
- Do not let “rest your chest”
Milk production is tailored to the needs of babies. If babies suck more often or longer, the mother’s body responds by making more milk.
If by mistake “it is abandoned to the breast ‘milk production will decrease. The breast is not a store but a well organized factory.
- Do not confuse babies
Learning to breastfeed is not equally easy for all babies. Some are confused if they are put in the mouth on a pacifier or a nipple, as both the form of plastic teats as how to be sucked into the chest are very different.
- Adapting to the times of baby food in their desires and the rest
When a baby falls asleep before the last feedings should not wake him. The rest will allow the mother produce more milk and relax.
