The moment you hold your new born baby in the delivery room, you feel relaxed and contented. You realize that you are now a mother and have a really tiny life to nurture, protect and raise. The feeling of breastfeeding your new born child is also divine and fills you up with affection and love, though breastfeeding would also have its own challenges for the new mother. However, it must be noted here that breast feeding is the best for you as well as your baby. At the very beginning, your body would produce special milk known as colostrum which is important for your baby as it protects him/her from all sorts of infection.
How to start Breastfeeding
How to End the Feeding
Have you seen babies sucking? Yes, they suck actively, then rest and again start sucking actively. Then they release when they think they are full. Always make sure to try burping him/her and then provide them the next breast. Let your nipples relax for some time to avoid soreness. First, start feeding with one breast and then the other one.
How often should the baby be fed?
You all know that new-borns are hungry often as their stomach is too small. They indicate that they are hungry by.
Many of the new-born babies require feeding for about 10 to 20 minutes on each breast at timely intervals of about 1 ½ to 3 hours. Not all babies are the same though. Some babies feed for a little time while others for longer and many of them require coaxing to continue; while others feed after a long nap. It is important to understand that your new-born baby needs 10 to 12 feedings every 24 hours.
