- Practice getting milk from your nipple by hand so that your baby will get attracted to your nipple with milk. After feeding, try to squeeze some milk out so that you can rub them against your nipple to prevent them from cracking and drying up.
- Instead of timing your baby’s food schedule, it is best to also watch your baby’s actions to know whether he/she is hungry already.
- Vitamin D drops as well as breast milk are the only ones given to your baby at early stages since mother’s milk will suffice the needs of the baby. (first 6 months)
- Mothers also need to rest when your baby is resting. It is vital to get enough rest so that you wont get sick and compromise your baby’s milk.
- When you feel that your breast is inflamed or swollen, try putting cold compress to decrease the swelling. Massaging it with warm towel after will help the milk flow afterwards.
