Hello, good morning Nur Aisyah.
Based on the opinion of experts, breastfeeding through a pacifier is not recommended for babies younger than 4-6 weeks. Feeding a pacifier too early can cause a baby to prefer to breastfeed through a pacifier rather than directly from the mother's breast. This condition is known as 'nipple confusion'. Signs of nipple confusion include: the baby does not open his mouth wide when feeding from the breast, the baby pushes his tongue when sucking milk from the mother's breast so that the mother's nipple comes out of his mouth, the baby becomes fussy and irritable due to indirect mother's milk comes out as if he was feeding through the pacifier (because it takes a 1-2 minute straw for the milk to come out).
Here are some tips for mothers so that babies don't confuse nipples:
Don't wait for a hungry baby to start breastfeeding right away, give yourself free time for the breastfeeding process. Thus, mother and baby have the patience for the correct breastfeeding process. If the baby is often fussy because the milk does not come out when directly feeding, overcome it by pumping it first until the milk comes out a little. So that the baby does not have to wait long for the milk to come out and avoid the baby from feeling impatient and irritable. Limit breastfeeding through the bottle, and always try to breastfeed directly while you can. Let someone else give the pacifier to the baby, so the baby will associate the mother's scent with breastfeeding. The most important thing is that you practice proper breastfeeding and learn safe breastfeeding positions Always remember that breastfeeding is not an instant learning process, it takes time and persistence.
Regarding your question regarding the effect of 3 months family planning, in general it has no effect on milk production. If you start to feel that your milk production is decreasing, here are some tips that we can give:
give breast milk continuously, continuous suction from the baby's mouth will give a signal to the brain to produce more breast milk, adequate rest, ask for help from your husband to reduce fatigue that you experience. Consume nutritious food, manage stress well, because stress can affect time for the release of ASI. Enough fluid needs by consuming at least 2.5 liters of water a day
That's all, I hope this helps ...
