Hello, good morning Umar Faruk ViiavLanessa
Breastfeeding while pregnant is basically allowed with certain considerations. Breastfeeding stimulates your nipples and triggers the release of the hormone oxytocin. This will have an impact on the contraction of the uterus, so it is feared that it will have an impact on the current pregnancy (which can increase the risk of premature labor and miscarriage). If you do not have a history of disorders in previous pregnancies, such as preterm labor, spots or bleeding during previous pregnancy, and premature contractions, then breastfeeding can still be done. However, if you have a history of these conditions in a previous pregnancy, then you should do early weaning. You can consult an obstetrician regarding this option. In a condition where a breastfed baby is 1 year old and has started to get used to consuming household food, some doctors usually recommend weaning.
Early weaning on children is not something easy. Several ways to start weaning include:
do it slowly, for example by shortening the duration of breastfeeding and giving a longer distance between feedings. This needs to be done to avoid the possibility of inflammation of the breast tissue (also called mastitis) which can cause swollen and painful breasts.
try to wean during the day
replace one breastfeeding time with bottle or cup milk, then the following week increase the time you bottle feed and reduce direct breastfeeding
try to gradually put the child to sleep without breastfeeding
use cups more often than bottles
Actually, when the gestational age of 4-5 months, the child will usually wean by itself. This is because at this gestational age, the pregnancy hormones begin to inhibit the performance of the milk-making hormone, so that milk production decreases and is replaced by colostrum. The taste of breast milk will be different, so it will not taste as good as usual. This in itself will help to wean your child.
Regarding the coughing up blood that you experience, it can be something normal, and can also indicate certain medical conditions. If the blood that comes out is only in the form of blood spots (a little) and you experience it only once, then this can be caused by a cough that is too strong, causing rupture of blood vessels in the airways. During pregnancy, changes in reproductive hormones occur, causing the blood vessels to enlarge and increase the pressure in the delicate blood vessels, making them more prone to rupture. However, if the bleeding is a lot and you experience it often, then this can be caused by certain medical conditions, such as:
bronchitis (inflammation of the branches of the lungs
dilation and swelling of the blood vessels in the esophagus (esophageal varices)
side effects of blood thinners
If you cough up blood that is frequent and or a large amount, consult a pulmonary doctor immediately for further treatment.
That's all, hope it helps, and always be healthy for you and your future baby.
