Pregnancy and childbirth change the hormones of the female body, preparing it for the process of feeding the newborn. Big changes occur in the mammary glands.
They increase in volume due to filling the milk with glandular lobules. The areoles and nipples also increase and darken. This is a normal physiological phenomenon. The lactiferous duct departs from each glandular lobule. Next, the milky ducts are connected to each other and open in the areola area of the milky sinuses.
In the first weeks of the start of breastfeeding in the mammary glands, the process of excretion of milk can be disrupted, which leads to its stagnation and the appearance of seals. If it is not timely to normalize the process of milk production, inflammatory changes occur in the breast with increasing temperature, both local and general. The development of mastitis can become a threatening condition not only for the continuation of breastfeeding, but also for the life of a woman. Improper feeding technique leads to violations of milk excretion and the formation of stagnation sites.
The main mistakes in the technique of applying the baby to the breast
- The baby is sideways to the chest
In case of violation of the feeding technique, stagnation in the glandular segments and the milky ducts occurs. If time is not restored patency, there will be a seal that requires urgent action.
How to properly attach the baby to the breast
- The baby must touch the belly of the mother's belly
In order to remove the seal, you must regularly express the milk. No matter how painful it is, the densest places must be carefully massaged. The direction of movement from the seal to the areola. Before the massage, attach the baby to the chest so that the chin is lying closer to the seal.
In the process of feeding, squeeze the breast in this place, trying to make the sucking process as easy as possible for the baby. After feeding, hold the breast under running warm water, then wipe thoroughly and lubricate with baby cream. After massaging the sealing site, apply cold to this area for a few minutes to reduce the effects of edema and prevent the development of inflammation.
If the measures taken do not give a positive effect within a few days and there is a deterioration in well-being, you should seek medical help.
