Any new mother knows the theory of how to increaselactation, but if milk will really miss - can develop panic. Therefore it is necessary beforehand to know exactly how to increase lactation nursing mother, and how to make the most of it right.
Many mothers stop breastfeeding early,as it is suspected that the child does not have enough milk. Everyone wants to "saturate" the kid in different mixtures and eventually fully switch to them, giving up breastfeeding. But if the mother would know in practice what to do in such a situation, the children receiving mother's milk would be more.
How much milk is allocated to normal?
The amount of milk normally
Remember the simple axiom: the female body is designed perfectly. Breast milk is produced as long as necessary at a certain stage the baby. More would have led to the stagnation of milk and draining problems, less effect on the baby - he will become hungry and poor to gain weight. Therefore, there is a balance: as the baby took - so many have returned. It is aware of this proportion, you can adjust the amount of milk. For example, the feeding was successful - the child fed, but the milk is left, in this case, you can resort to tsezheniyu. You Decant much less than eating the baby, so the next time will be less milk. After express will have a smaller amount of milk as a result of the baby will pick up more, and the volume of supply and intake of milk balanced.
Enough Does the baby milk?
As young mothers understand the insufficientthe amount of milk? Their on this idea suggests distracting the child's behavior, and the first thought: it is not full. But do not panic! Can a child just wants to suck the breast (do not have), and you have suddenly weaned - that discontent. Maybe he was just uncomfortable and hot, so it behaves very disturbing.
Note!The vagaries of the baby after a meal does not always mean a lack of milk.
Others think the shortage of milk for another reason: after feeding it is impossible to express her milk. According to a young mother the baby can not eat everything. But it is well-established with feeding the baby takes all the milk, and it is enough.
The most objective sign of a lack of food willreducing the amount of the child's urine. The day the baby should be 10-20 times pee under normal feeding. The urine should be a light straw color. If the urine becomes dark (concentrated), and the acts themselves are becoming rare urination, then the baby milk is not enough. If it has been observed that something similar - count the acts of micturition (during the day, use diapers, so you can count). If the issue is confirmed - it is possible to struggle, are not you the first!
