Pain Or Injury In The Breast Due To The Habit Of Children Who Often Hold The Nipple When Breastfeeding?
Noon I am 23 over 6 months old and I am a nursing mother. When my child is nenen (drinking milk) my child likes to spin or hold the other breast nipple. And holding it sometimes makes me feel hurt. In the end of the day, I got hurt because of the child pelintirin. If you make milk, it hurts. After not getting sick, suddenly in my right breast there was a lump and held it could shift. It does not hurt if held si. And is that dangerous or not? Earlier I checked the doctor said he was okay but why in my heart how come this could happen like this. Even though yesterday there were no lumps

Some babies do feel comfortable when holding, twisting, or playing with the mother's nipples when breastfeeding. This is not dangerous, although it can sometimes cause addictions that make babies angry if the habit is stopped in an inappropriate way. To avoid pain or wounds in the breast because of these habits, you can do the following steps:
Give the baby a gentle understanding to stop the habit because it makes you feel uncomfortable
Divert the baby's attention when suckling, so he does not remember to play with your other nipples, for example by talking to him, closing the nipple side tightly next to him, holding his hand, holding a toy to the baby, and so on
Wash your baby's hands thoroughly, especially before he holds your nipples
Also wash your hands and clean your breasts well before and after breastfeeding
Bathing diligently, always use a bra and clean clothes
If there is a wound, just clean it with clean water, do not carelessly given an ointment or medication without a doctor's prescription
Consult your doctor or pediatrician if this habit does not go away until your baby is more than 2 years old
The appearance of a lump in the breast that can be easily moved is often harmless. These lumps can appear as part of breast fibrocystic changes that commonly occur before menstruation. It could also, these lumps arise due to enlargement of lymph nodes or benign tumors in the breast, for example fibroadenoma, cysts, and so on. However, if you find lumps getting bigger, hardening, or causing pain and changes in the structure of the skin and nipples (for example, being injured, rough, such as being drawn in), you should be alert and check directly with your doctor or surgeon. It is feared, the lump is an early sign of cancer, abscesses, or other abnormalities in the breast that need further treatment from the doctor.
