Feeding by a breast “from And to I“

Exists a possibility of the first feeding in the operating room provided that operation was performed at local anesthesia, and rules of hospital allow such feeding. But with feeding you should wait a little if operation was performed under the general anesthesia or your child demands medical care.

Try to take away the child from children`s chamber as soon as you recover. It is necessary to remember that certain physical factors complicate applying of the child to a breast.

Even the fear can become the reason of the first unsuccessful feedings. Besides milk can come later (to 5 - 9 day) from - for applications of the general anesthesia and restriction of application of the means reducing a uterus, lack of the necessary hormones which are emitted at natural childbirth. However your kid needs so a chest milk!

Remember the following rules.

Demand applying to the child`s breast right after childbirth or after you depart from an anesthesia. But do not expect from the first applying to a breast of the real feeding as both of you need to learn much still.

Ask supports for your doctor if you meet a ban of doctors or nurses of hospital on feeding of the child in postnatal office if childbirth took place normally. Have to bring you the child for feeding.


Most often in maternity hospitals after Caesarian use the drugs compatible to chest feeding, however nurses still frighten mothers by harmful drugs, especially antibiotics. Ask your doctor what preparations to you are appointed and whether they are compatible to feeding. Write down names of these drugs.

Can happen that in time intended for feeding, your child will sleep. Wake him in spite of the fact that it will seem not ethic. When he wakes up, at once begin feeding. The main thing - your desire to begin and continue feeding. Production of milk very strongly depends on two things: your confidence is that you can feed the kid, and sosatelny activity of the child.

When the kid was brought for feeding, surely apply it to a breast even if he sleeps: children can suck in a light slumber.

Be patient

. Do not worry, the child will not be hungry as the need for food at newborns is small. Your child first of all needs love and caress. Press it to yourself. He “will remember“ your heartbeat and “recognizes“ you.

If the child was

with you not earlier 3 - go day and at the same time contains separately:

Being in chamber separately from the child, decant both breasts - better to make 8 - 10 short attempts for 5 minutes, each 2 hours, excepting a night break with 24. 00 to 6. 00. Your kid was only born, and colostrum is produced a little so far - on his natural requirement. Therefore decanted 5 − 10 grams are much. And it is impossible to be decanted “to a last straw“. Do not torment yourself. Collect colostrum in a small bottle, 8 hours it can be stored without refrigerator, at the room temperature. At the first opportunity give colostrum to your kid, it is the best of all from a spoon, having put the kid on the elbow so that he was on it poluvertikalno.

If the child is brought to you to feed on hours, keep still of 6 - 8 decantations, excepting a night break. Usually every second feeding - is inefficient from - that the child is finished feeding, and he got used to suck from a bottle. If during feeding the child actively sucked a breast in the correct situation, consider this appointment as decantation. If the child sucked inertly - decant a breast after feeding.

At each appointment to the child should concentrate not on that how many it will exhaust, and on how it takes a breast.

Surely put the child to both breasts in one feeding, for the best stimulation of a lactation. Act this way before essential inflow of milk which can begin for 2 - 5 day after the child began to be brought on feeding regularly.

you Feed with

the child only when it is quiet. Otherwise it will not be able to find and take pacifiers. If the child strongly shouts, press him to yourself, shake and calm. Then give a breast. To reduce a postoperative indisposition, when feeding the child enclose under it a pillow, laying down sideways. Over time pain of a seam will pass and you will test only pleasure when feeding the child.

you with the kid of the house!

be not nervous if you have failures when feeding the child. It is necessary to begin feeding quiet and weakened as far as it is possible. Learn not to think of anything that can afflict, upset you.

Besides, mental tension can reduce release of milk.

Invite the consultant for breastfeeding for training in practice and technology of breastfeeding (it is necessary to learn to put correctly, correctly to take away, nestle, feed from different provisions, to feed lying and to sleep together in the child, it is correct to decant if it is necessary)

To consultation on breastfeeding put the child to a breast each 2 hours irrespective of, he sleeps or is awake, excepting a night break with 22 - 24 one o`clock in the morning to 4 - x mornings.


the child with yourself in a bed as soon as you keep within and you sleep all night long near it.

your food when feeding

When feeding by a breast needs to include not less than 500 ml of milk, kefir or curdled milk, of 50 - 100 g in a daily diet cottage cheese, about 200 g of meat, 600 g of vegetables (different vegetables it is better to enter in turn), 1 egg, of 300 - 500 fruit (the quantity should be increased gradually), 35 g of creamy and 20 g of vegetable oil.

Should exclude the alcohol and products causing an allergy: honey, citrus, strawberry, chocolate, canned food, sausages. It is necessary to drink enough liquid. It is also recommended to resume reception vitaminno - mineral complexes for pregnant women and feeding as the need for vitamins and minerals remains same high, as well as during pregnancy.

It is desirable for

Through two - three months you will be able already to begin to be engaged in special exercises to find elasticity of a stomach, symmetry of legs, beauty of a breast.
