Tips feeding positions

In the tips this time I will give some nursing positions that can be tried, so the process can run smoothly

1. holding position (the cradle hold)
This classic position breastfeeding, baby cuddle with the baby's head in the crook of her mother's elbow. when feeding on the right breast, put his head in the crook of right elbow and buttocks on the right palm. point the baby's body so that baby's ears are in a straight line with an existing baby's hands above. in other words, she was lying on his side to face, stomach and knees against the chest and abdomen mother. the hands of another baby (that is beneath him) left it was as though embracing mother's body, thus simplifying the baby's mouth to reach the breast.

2. holding the position of the cross (the cross cradle hold)
at this position, the mother did not support the baby's head with an elbow curve, but with her palms. so, if the mother breast-feeding with the right breast, use your left hand to hold. hug the baby, so the head, chest and belly facing you. then, point the mouth to your nipple with your thumb and your hands behind your head and below the ear. This position can be chosen if the baby has difficulty pressed his mouth to the nipple. for example, if your breasts are big while small baby's mouth.

3. position of the head (the clutch or football hold)
according to its name, in this position the baby's head propped mother with her palms, while the body of the baby "slipped" under your hand, like holding a ball or a handbag. if you are going to breast feed her right hand, then hold the baby with your right hand. and vice versa. place the baby on the side (under your hand) with the front facing you. let his legs stretched backwards. put your hands on a pillow on your lap or beside you. then prop the shoulders, neck and head with your hands. point the baby's mouth toward your nipple. This action must be done with caution. if the mother encourages the baby to the breast hard, the baby will reject and move her head. This position can be selected if you undergo Caesarean operations (to avoid the baby lying on your stomach). in addition, this position can also be used if your baby is small or has difficulty in feeding, or you have flat nipples, or if your baby twins.

4. side by side sleeping position (reclining position)

Essentially, keep the baby does not need to strain your neck to reach the nipple. otherwise, you do not need to bow to him, so do not get tired. This position can be selected if the mother has not been able to sit with a good or comfortable, or in a period of healing after a Caesarean operation.

Forget the diet

Another thing to keep in mind, mothers need not fear getting fat during lactation. because fat is dumped during pregnancy will be used for the formation of breast milk. in other words a breastfeeding mother, his weight will be more quickly returned to the original weight of the mothers did not breastfeed. so focus your attention on the needs of your baby breast milk, especially during the first six months.
if the mother a little concerned with body shape now, then the mother can only reduce foods high in carbohydrates and sweet, like rice, bread, cakes, candied fruits, candies, chocolates, drinks and sweet biscuits. full cream milk skim milk can be substituted by a lower fat content. usually fried foods can be cooked in other ways, such as steamed, boiled, or burned. other than that avoid fat meat, as well as vegetables and fruits high in calories, such as avocado, soursop, maize and tubers.
but so, it does not mean the mother may reduce the frequency of eating or not eating on time should be for reasons too busy. you can take ten minutes on the sidelines during your busy to sit down to eat bread and eggs, a glass of milk and a few pieces of papaya, for example, this is all enough to make a contribution to nutrient substances the body needs.
so you should not always think about weight loss. could disrupt production in addition to breast milk, mothers still need extra calories to do activities during your child is still young, treat, and ask him to play. do not be a happy moment when it just missed.

Nutrition breastfeeding mothers

Therefore, pregnant or lactating women need more calories than non-pregnant women. if the circumstances do not pregnant a mature female requires approximately as much as 2200 calories kcal per day, then a mother during pregnancy requires approximately as much as 2500 calories kcal per day. This requirement will increase again when the mother breast-feeding. he must add another approximately another 750 kcal per day of normal requirements, so be approximately 2900 kcal. when consumption of calories (which can be obtained from carbohydrates and fat) is low, it will be a lot of protein for use as energy is wasted. whereas, this substance is actually a substance-forming substance that is necessary for growth. that's why, the mother must comply with the good will of calories her body needs

2. Protein
breast milk contains protein, approximately 1.2 g/100ml. therefore, nursing mothers need to consume approximately 64 grams of protein per day, which can be obtained from fish and eggs.

All three played an important role in the work of the nervous system, metabolism and immunology (the immune), the little guy. when a mother breast-feeding always consume protein, both animal and vegetable oils in sufficient quantities, this substance is automatically third is enough to meet the needs of the body.

3. Fat
Also important is consumed while breast-feeding mothers are essential fatty acids. This substance is very important, among others in the process of growth or the formation of a baby's brain. Essential fatty acids in the form of omega 3 (in the body will become DHA), can be obtained by consuming various kinds of sea fish, like mackerel, anchovies, and green vegetables. whereas omega-6 can be obtained from oils derived from seeds of grains, including soybean oil and corn oil.

4. Vitamins and minerals

Vitamin C is needed as much as 85 mg per day. many vitamins can be by consuming a variety of colorful vegetables and fruits. in addition it contains vitamins that are needed by breastfeeding mothers, fruits can help refresh the body.

Providing optimal breast milk exclusively

according to the WHO exclusive breast milk is the provision of breast milk alone (without the addition of other fluids, such as formula milk, orange juice, honey, tea, water, or other foods such as bananas, porridge, biscuits etc.), until the babies aged 4-6 months. even, with a good lactation management, expressed breast milk production enough

as the sole food for the growth of normal infants up to age 6 months. whereas for infants with allergies are encouraged to be given breast milk exclusively until 9 months to prevent the occurrence of allergic reactions that are too early. because so far, no babies are allergic to milk his mother, except if the mother consumes food or beverages that contain substances that are allergens. if the mother stopped the consumption of the substance an allergen, an allergen reaction in babies will heal by itself.

breast milk should be given to infants up to age 6 months due under the age of the infant not yet able to digest foods other than breast milk. in addition to nutrients, breast milk also contains digestive enzymes that have not been able to be produced by a newborn. so although the function of digestive organs are not perfect, the digestive enzymes in breast milk will help the baby digest the substances contained substances in milk that smoked. so the remainder of metabolism (the burning of substances in the body into energy, the new cells, and others) that will be released through the kidneys was only slightly, so that the kidneys work becomes easier.

research that monitors the growth of infants who received breast milk exclusively using growth parameters, namely body weight according to age and body weight by height showed that the growth of infants with birth weight enough to get breast milk exclusively was in accordance with the standards according to WHO growth until 6 months.

from various studies, showed that at age 3-4 months, infants who received breast milk exclusively a bit more weight than formula-fed infants. after that, formula-fed babies will be heavier, but the length and equal to circle his head who got breast milk. this means that babies who received formula milk for food, excessive.

although the energy intake of protein per kg body weight babies who received breast milk exclusively lower compared with formula-fed infants, the ratio of weight gain per 100 calories higher. this means that energy use in infants who received breast milk exclusively is more efficient than formula-fed infants. in connection with this, WHO is now trying to develop new growth curves that are based on growth in infants who received breast milk exclusively.

Other studies also show that babies who received breast milk exclusively, morbidity (disease rate) and much lower mortality rate than babies who received breast milk mixed with formula, especially when compared with that do not get breast milk . infants are also rarely sick. with a rare illness, growth and development of infants who received breast milk would be better.
