The Baby Only Wants To Suckle In The Left Breast?
Hello, I have given birth to breastfeeding with my child next door. And my child is 2 months old and still drinks breast milk on the left. While the right side of the first child I do not want because my nipples are small. If forced to learn breastfeeding on the right can you do or not but it’s been 2 months that you have never breastfeeded right
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. In terms of nutrition received by the baby, actually there is no problem whether he only consumes breast milk from one breast or both, because both are equally produced from your body. Problems that may occur, it is more on your side.
Among them if one breast is not milk removed, the breast can swell, become blocked, and become inflamed. Breast milk production in these breasts can also be reduced, and it is more difficult to get out. In addition, breast size may be more unbalanced, and because one is more often exposed to the baby's mouth, it is not impossible that the risk of infection will increase as well.
Therefore, even though all of the things we said above don't necessarily happen, it could happen. Therefore, it would be better if you try to train your child by giving your child the other nipple when breastfeeding. You can try applying a little bit of your milk to your other nipple so your baby knows the smell. If it does not work, at least keep milk from the other breast and save it so that the risk of inflammation decreases, and the production remains large. So, hopefully answering your question.
