Success comes with experience
Practice helps to solve all the problems. Frequent feeding even short-term can help avoid cracking nipples, engorgement, blockage of ducts and mastitis, an infectious disease of the breasts. It also helps to increase the amount of milk as the child grows, says Walker.
“If you limit sucking time, as some experts advise, it will not save your nipples from cracking,” says Walker. Most newborns can suck one breast for up to 20 minutes. The child should be held at one breast as much time as he wants, and then move on to another. Since the nipples are damaged due to improper posture during feeding and improper sucking techniques, reducing the feeding time does not bring relief and may even worsen the situation. The amount of milk from the mother may decrease. "
Mother's milk contains chemicals called suppressor peptides that regulate the amount of milk produced. If there is a lot of milk and the breasts begin to be rude, the peptide suppressors slow down its production. If the breast is released from the milk during the feeding process or as a result of decanting the peptides are not released. “The only thing that limits the amount of milk you produce is baby’s appetite,” Walker said. That’s why a woman can feed twins and triplets. ”
