Instruction breast milk: how to cope with the tides
Before serving, do not drink hot drinks, do not take a hot shower. Feed your child is not on the clock, and on-demand - offer him suck just about every hour and a half. Every three hours a breast change, if it is during this time wanted to eat a few times, then offer him the same breast. Do night breaks 4 hours between feedings.
Do not give your child a pacifier, because baby, sucking a pacifier, sucking the milk less and less likely to feel the need to attach to the breast. Never express to the last drop of milk after feeding, only to ease feelings. In other words, the breast should be soft, without seals. Full pumping just more often and is the reason giperlaktatsii. Seals and bumps rastsezhivayte completely.
Try to gradually minimize pumping night. Of course, it should be done, if you sleep with the baby and he sucks at night. Remember that the more you express milk, the more your body produces it.
