Upper Right Buttock Pain Due To Breastfeeding?
Afternoon, I am a nursing mother. The color of breastfeeding while sleeping on my side is late. now why does the right upper buttocks hurt huh? That is because drinking less water or aching because it is too long tilted right?
Hello Indah, thank you for asking.
Breastfeeding can indeed happen at any time because breast milk is given according to the wishes of the baby. Keep your position and the position of the baby comfortable while breastfeeding. Breastfeeding while lying down or while sitting, both must be done properly. The position of the baby's body towards the mother's body, as well as the baby's mouth position towards the nipple must be correct. The baby's stomach should stick to the mother's abdomen, the baby's head facing the nipple and not look sideways, the baby's mouth is wide open with the lips covering the nipple, the baby's chin touches the mother's chest, and hold the baby's body with the mother's arms.
Also pay attention to your position. If you feel muscle pain, then most likely your position is not good. Find a comfortable position, adjust the position of the pillow, then start breastfeeding. Try to breastfeed the baby right and left alternately. In addition to preventing muscle pain due to lying too much to one side, also so that breast milk in the breast that is not reduced due to less frequent breastfeeding.
You can try massaging the area of the painful buttocks or warm compresses. Try to drink 2 L of water per day to prevent dehydration and maintain the volume of breast milk. If the pain still persists or gets worse, please consult with your doctor.
Hopefully this answer can help. Regards.
