No exception when is the right time to give breast milk to your baby, including:
1. Give breast milk after the baby is born. When your baby is born, maybe the milk that is produced is not very smooth, but that does not cause a problem because the baby will suck very hard so that the milk production process itself runs smoothly.
2. Give breast milk when the baby wants it. Over time, babies begin to get used to making their own time by adjusting to the milk production you have. At this time, the role of the mother is very important in maintaining her diet, this is because her diet and dietary intake greatly affect the production of breast milk.
3. Give breast milk for more than 6 months to increase the baby’s food consumption.
4. If you have a very busy life outside the home or you are required to work, it would be better if you continue to provide breast milk to the baby. You can get around this by taking the time to pump before you go and storing it in the refrigerator (freezer). You can also do other ways, most importantly the baby continues to consume breast milk according to their needs.
The obligation that must be done by a mother is to exclusively breastfeed her child. Whatever the reason, the mother is obliged to continue breastfeeding her baby, unless the mother has health problems in her breasts that result in breast milk. Good way of breastfeeding: just 10 minutes but still regularly Most mothers often linger in breastfeeding their babies, it aims to make the baby full, and fall asleep easily. Now there is a term that says the baby led method, this method is to breastfeed the baby according to his wishes. Most of these methods are performed by young mothers. However, this method is also not the best for mother and baby. However, a study states that breastfeeding with a short time but regularly is actually effective in gaining weight for babies.
However, some studies say the shortbreastfeed method has more benefits by simply following the baby’s wishes. By giving exclusive breastfeeding for 10 minutes at a time, this actually brings a good impact for the baby. The baby’s weight increases significantly. However, not all breastfeeding mothers can apply this method. Pregnant women need the hormone octitocin which can stimulate calm and reflexes that make milk spread from breast cells that pass through the vessels and end up in the mother’s nipples. This octitocin will be inhibited if the baby is breastfeeding for a long time. In the study, it was also explained that if the baby does not get second breast milk, the mother’s breasts feel very full every time they breastfeed.
