What Is The Solution If You Haven’t Breastfeeded For A Long Time, Now You Want To Breastfeed Again?
Assalamualaikum, I am safitri, I am irt I want it, haven’t I been breastfeeding for a long time, but I now want to breastfeed again, what is the solution?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Breastfeeding is an activity that not only meets the needs of the baby but also establishes a bond or bond between mother and child. Breastfeeding for 6 months or exclusive breastfeeding is highly recommended in order to provide the baby with needs for 6 months where the milk is very good to meet the nutrition of the baby and is also rich in antibodies that are very useful for the body's defense in the future.
In your case where you are not breastfeeding and want to re-breastfeed or known as relactation, it is important to consider whether breastfeeding is still being produced or not. During this time the baby is getting milk from breast milk or with formula milk. If it is indeed from formula milk it is likely that milk production is greatly reduced or even absent if it has been long enough not to breastfeed directly. However, if you are pumping or pumping your milk, you can breastfeed again by re-training the baby to attach to the breast.
The need to carefully examine your current condition, baby's age, milk production and so forth. Consult with midwives or ASI-specific counseling through ASI clinics. Here are some steps that can be done in relactation are as follows:
Often attach breast to baby
Apply milk to the nipples to lure the baby to suck
Feeding the baby at night
Skin contact of mother and baby
Blushing milk between breastfeeding
Give formula milk with a position like breastfeeding.
Be patient and keep the spirit of giving breast milk, the best milk.
So that I can convey, hopefully useful.
