Hello Desi,

Breast milk is the main food for babies 0-6 months and can be continued afterwards accompanied by complementary foods after the baby is 6 months or older. Sometimes when breastfeeding a baby can experience choking like your baby.

To reduce the possibility of choking while breastfeeding, you can try to improve the position and method of breastfeeding, including the following:

Make sure the baby's mouth is perfectly attached to the nipple, a good attachment is for the baby's mouth to open as wide as possible and stick to the nipple area and under the nipple as wide as possible.You can try the breastfeeding position on your back with your back supported by a pillow or half sitting, then the baby is placed on Before breastfeeding, you can pump the milk for a while first so that the milk flow is not too heavy when breastfeeding the baby It is hoped that with a change in the position and method of breastfeeding, your baby will be more comfortable and reduce the risk of choking while feeding. If your baby continues to choke, coughs and vomits, you should first consult with your pediatrician so that the bus can find out the cause so that your baby can be given maximum further treatment.
