Baby sucking is the most effective way to stimulate lactation!At the beginning of lactation, in order to promote the secretion of milk, the mother can be 10 to 12 times a day for the frequency of lactation, that is every 2-3 hours.After every lactation, mother remember to drink a cup of warm water in time, to supplement the water lost in the body, promote the production of milk.
2.Kissing is best
The most fundamental way to chase milk is to kiss feeding, baby feeding as needed, and keep both sides of the breast can eat, to achieve both sides of the breast in turn empty.Human brain is like a commander-in-chief, only when the breast emptying will give orders to produce milk, if the long-term breast can not empty, the brain thought there are many “soldiers”, will be slack even cause “milk”.
Special circumstances cannot kiss feed or when the baby feeding times need low, can use a breast pump to empty the milk, even at night to empty.All we have to do is tell the brain that more milk is needed, which is the principle of “the more milk you suck, the more you suck.”
3. Correct breast holding posture
Only the baby’s correct breast can effectively eat the milk, the mother is also the most comfortable.
The correct nipple should look like this: when the baby is holding the nipple in the mouth, the direct contact between the upper and lower jaw should not be the nipple, but the areola!The baby’s nose, lips and chin are close to the breast so that it can be fed efficiently.
