Myths About Improper Breastfeeding

To be able to breastfeed comfortably, it is essential to keep looking for the right information. Well, rather than being confused, let's look at things that Mother often hears, along with the facts:
  • Mothers who have just given birth cannot produce enough milk

The fact is natural if as a new mother it is difficult to produce breast milk (ASI) for 3-5 days after giving birth. Breast milk production will begin with the release of colostrum, which is a concentrated liquid with an ingredient that is important for newborns. Also, in the early days of birth, babies only need no more than two teaspoons of breast milk every time they drink, Bun.
  • Breastfeeding is painful.

In the first few weeks, the nipples still feel hard and are so sensitive that breastfeeding can be painful. However, if the position of the breastfeeding and the baby's mouth are correctly attached, it will not hurt anymore. If you are having difficulty, don't stop to ask for help from pro-ASI nurses, ASI counselors, or friends who have breastfed first.
  • Children who give ASI are more plump and smart.

One thing is sure, breast milk is rich in nutrients and contains antibodies that can protect the little one from infection. However, according to research, nothing shows that children who get ASI must have more or more intelligent weight than those who don't. The important thing is that the nutritional needs of the child are still well fulfilled. So it's normal if the ASI child is not too plump, it tends to be thinner than the child given formula milk.
  • Breasts need to rest so that the milk replenish.

The more often breastfeeding or pumping milk, the more breast milk will produce. Resting the breasts will reduce the supply of breast milk. For ASI production to run smoothly, diligently give ASI to the Little One. If you are not with your little one and your breasts feel full, you can also milk and store ASI as a backup.
  • Avoid giving breast milk (ASIP)

Mother can introduce bottles to babies at 2-6 weeks alternately. A day of breastfeeding directly, and a day with a bottle. He will learn to suckle from the container without losing the ability to nurse from the breast. Don't forget to keep holding and hugging the baby even though ASIP give with a bottle, Bun.
  • Small breasts do not produce enough milk.

Generally, breast size will change during pregnancy. However, even if it doesn't improve significantly, actually breast size is not related to the amount of milk produced or not. Women with large breasts can also experience difficulties while breastfeeding. So, regardless of the size of your breasts, keep trying to increase your milk supply for your little one.
  • Drinking formula milk makes the baby sleep better.

Infants who consume formula may tend to be fast asleep, but it's not a good thing. Is because the recipe harder to digest than breast milk. However, don't worry, on average after four weeks, newborns can sleep as long as those who drink formula milk.
  •  Mothers should stop breastfeeding if the baby is diarrhea.

Breast milk is very appropriate to protect the baby's digestive system. Giving breastmilk during diarrhea can help fight infection, and prevent babies from dehydration. Also, breastfeeding helps calm the baby.
  • Breastfeeding will make the breasts lose

This assumption is not entirely wrong, because, during breastfeeding, the breast filled with breast milk, so that breast tissue tends to enlarge. After passing through the breastfeeding period, stretched breast tissue may appear to relax in some people.
