  • The most common mistakes in positions and seizure of the nipple during breastfeeding

    • The child's body is turned away from the mother's body and hangs, instead of being pressed tightly to the abdomen.

    • The mother does not show patience while waiting for the baby to open her mouth wide when teasing his mouth with a nipple.

    • The mother leaves the child's lips tightly inward, although they should be freely turned outwards.

    • The child is given the freedom to squeeze on the nipple instead of the areola( sucking mug).

    • The mother is too passive and does not attract the child to her with a quick hand movement.

    ku sideways from itself or slide it between each other and the armrest of the chair, put on the pillow of the child. Place the child as close to him as possible from the side of the breast you are about to feed, and take the child's head in the palm of the hand on the same side. Point your baby's legs up so that they lie touching the pillows under your back. Check that the child does not rest on the back of the chair or on the pillow, otherwise he will bend his back with an arch. If this happens, put the child so that his legs are bent in the hip joints and that his legs and buttocks rest against the back cushion. Follow the same instructions for attaching the baby to your chest, taking your left breast into your right hand and pulling the baby as close to you as possible with a quick hand movement. When the baby is already well sucking, slip a pillow under his back so that it is easier for you to hold the baby close to you.

    We recommend that every young mother who has first encountered breastfeeding should seek the help of a lactation specialist in the first few days after birth in order to start correctly by mastering the correct positions and techniques of breast capture before bad habits are formed. Several years ago, in our practice, we began to advise every woman who first became a mother to consult the

    positions and techniques of breast-feeding in our center for breastfeeding( or visit our lactation specialist in the hospital) until the end of forty-eight hours after delivery. As a result, the number of problems with breastfeeding has plummeted, and mothers and their children have become more enjoyable from communication during feeding.
