Breastfeedingwhat you need to know

For the first time mother, there are a lot of questions and curiosity on the topic of breastfeeding. Will I be able to breastfeed? Will it hurt? What if I cannot breastfeed? Will my breast milk be enough for my baby? And while I am at work how can I ensure that my baby gets breast milk? A mother goes through these and many more questions.

Breast milk can be safely stored for up to 2hrs in the open and for 2 days if put in the fridge freezer. Once defrosted, breast milk should be used ASAP, and any remaining breastmilk needs to be discarded.

I feel before taking any supplement or tablet you should check with your doctor. In case it is required, the doctor will suggest something which is compatible to you.

Haritha.. Please make skin to skin contact to increase milk supply.. make the baby latch.. the more the baby latch.. the more supply.. and have a healthy diet... Google more for remedies to increase milk (few. are methi seeds, bottle guard, shatavri) are you under stress that too may be the cause.. Happy parenting.. ps: am no expert.. advising based on my exp and learnings from fellow mommies

Hi Nikita! I would suggest you to be very calm while feeding your baby. Babies sense if you are nervous or frustrated. Besides that, eat well and sleep well. Some deep breathing also helps while breastfeeding.

Find out if the baby has sore throat, or anything related to a painful experience in the recent past while breast feeding. Think back carefully and find out by tracing incidents. When that happens, sometimes, the baby related feeding to painful experience and hence rejects that activity. Try to make the baby as comfortable as possible. Gradually the baby will come around.

its fine Khushboo. Children can be breastfed upto 2yrs. Infact, as the above blog mentions, world health organisation recommends that its a wonderful choice if the baby can be breastfed for upto 2yrs. As for fussy eater, she is just getting introduced to solid food and will take time to develop her taste. Keep trying, that the best practice. I did the same with my baby.
