Breastfeeding

Offer the breast

Breastfeed on demand! Generally, your child lets you know when it is hungry. The baby can however look for the breast when it is only thirsty, to satisfy a need to suck, to sleep or just to be close to you. 

Choose a quiet place with a pleasant temperature and moderate lighting so as not to dazzle eyes. Get yourself comfortable without tensing up to avoid back and arm pain. Finally, position the baby so that his/her face is against your breast, and his body is against yours for better latching on.

 Here are positions for breastfeeding

A good position avoids cracks and engorgement. If pain persists or there are other symptoms, see your doctor
