"Everything that it is necessary to know about breastfeeding

convince mothers long ago that breast milk is only the healthy and useful nutrition for the newborn. Many mothers, "having tested" this way of food are ready to agree with it. However such, at first sight, plain process as applying to a breast, causes a set of problems at the beginning.

On demand or on hours?

Contrary to opinion of the Soviet grandmothers, it is the best of all to feed the newborn on demand: he will offer mother an optimum diet. At such approach the kid will gorge on, it is good to put on weight and to sleep tight. As a rule, newborns demand a breast of 8-12 times a day, including at night. By the end of the first month of life the number of feedings decreases to 7-9 times. At a breast the kid spends on average 20-30 minutes. It is important not to tear off the child from a breast violently. By the end of feeding it reaches to, so-called, "back" milk: fatter, nutritious, and therefore nourishing.
