Infants Aged 3 Months Do Not Want To Suckle And Produce Little Milk?
, my baby is now 3 months 1 week old. About 3 weeks early I was breastfeeding and giving milk because I had little milk and was not fluent. As my baby grows older, my breastfeeding needs increase while my breast milk production does not change. So that each process of breastfeeding becomes a difficult moment for both of us, the baby is struggling to struggle. My father-in-law gave milk because he felt sorry for his granddaughter. As a result my baby until the age of 3 months is consuming milk, not breast milk. To improve breast milk I have already taken breast milk booster and pumping but it is still lacking for my baby, what steps should I take if I want to breastfeed my baby again? The baby every breast confronted only looked at it, different if given a pacifier bottle. And during breastfeeding I have eaten spicy foods, how long do I have to wait for my milk to not be affected by the food I consume while I am not breastfeeding?
Your desire to breastfeed is a very good thing and needs to be supported. Feeding again after stopping is called relactation. The relactation process is often quite difficult and requires more effort, therefore support from family and loved ones is very important.
Your steps to consume breast milk booster and pumping are good, to help relax, you can try some of the following tips:
Continue to think positively that your milk can be produced more and can meet the needs of the baby. Realize that the process of relactation is not instant and can take several weeks so you do not easily give up. Ask for support from family and closest people, especially your husband. Often attach the nipple to the baby's mouth, but if the baby does not want it should not be forced, wait until the baby looks sleepy or when you're happy / not fussy, then you try to bring the nipple to his mouth Try breastfeeding the baby at night Expand skin to skin Apply breast milk on the nipple before breastfeeding Do pumping regularly Consumption of breast milk booster If you still have to use formula milk, try giving formula milk with a slow spoon or if forced to use a pacifier, choose a pacifier that resembles the shape of the breast and nipples then give a pacifier with a position similar to breastfeeding. If you have difficulty doing relactation, I suggest that you consult a doctor child or with consent lor lactation. You can also go to a health facility that has a lactation clinic service so you can be assisted in the relactation process.
Hope it helps you,
