4 Keys to Breastfeeding for Caesarean Baby
Caesarean section is more difficult to achieve breast milk replacement studies than natural delivery. It is found that the time of cesarean section gradually degenerates from the beginning of lactation, that is, the time from retinal dialysis to the mother’s conscious breast swelling and the first milk discharge when squeezing the breast.The new mummy is nearly 10 hours late, and the prolactin level in the body is low, coupled with the restriction of body position, pain, psychological factors, etc., so the risk of breast milk failure within one year after delivery is higher than that of a new mummy born naturally.
So, how can a new mom with a caesarean section successfully substitute breast milk for her baby?
Key 1: Three stickers, three early-early breastfeeding for newborn babies is a complicated physiological process. Prolactin plays an important role in initiating lactation and maintaining milk secretion. Gradually sucking sucking nipples and breast emptying is to promote prolactin.An important factor in secretion.
The colostrum within 24 hours after the birth of the baby can resist the Royal Internal Virus. The immune protein content of the bacterial invasion is the highest, and it will gradually decrease in the future. Therefore, breastfeeding as soon as possible after delivery is the key to promoting and ensuring the occurrence of breast milk.
The sucking reflex is the strongest in the 20-50 minutes after the birth of the newborn. If you can fully and effectively implement the “three stickers”, that is, chest against the chest, abdomen against the abdomen, baby mouth against the maternal breast, and “three early”, that is,Touching early, sucking early, and opening milk early can not only consolidate the suckling reflex of the newborn baby, but also stimulate the nerve endings of the nipple, which will cause the release of prolactin, make milk secrete in advance, and increase the amount of milk.
Therefore, new moms who have a caesarean section should actively adopt prolactin techniques such as early contact, early sucking, and early milk opening.
For new moms who start with less milk, it is best to avoid using bottles and pacifiers, as this will cause the illusion of the baby’s nipples, and they will no longer suck their mother’s nipples.
Key 2-Decompression Pump-Relieves pain from cesarean section complications and cuts into abdominal headaches, which not only affects the rest and sleep of the new mom, but also produces a series of pain, anxiety, and sympathetic nerve excitement that can inhibit lactation.
Especially for the gradual 3 acute attacks, the pain and prevention of tibia fractures are the most prominent. At the same time, the pain will seriously affect the activities of the new mom and feel inconvenient.
This directly leads to the breastfeeding posture, affects the baby’s attachment to the nipple, and causes the new mom to feel powerless and even lose confidence.
However, new moms who have a caesarean section can ask the hospital to provide an epidural analgesia pump.
Studies have shown that gradual analgesia has no adverse effects on new moms and newborn babies, and no narcotic drugs can be detected in the milk, so it is safe and feasible, and it can greatly help the successful breast milk replacement of cesarean babies.

After the operation, the new mommy was emotionally stable, had too much sleep, and had unlimited movement.
It is helpful for early contact and early breastfeeding, and it is beneficial for the mother to establish lactation reflex, promote prolactin secretion and lactation start time.

Key 3 Peace of Mind-Relieve the tension Just after giving birth to the baby, almost all new moms have different levels of worry, anxiety, depression, fear and other psychological problems.
New moms who have a caesarean section have nervousness about the operation itself, coupled with the effects of pain, inconvenience and poor sleep, fatigue, and inadaptability to the change of postpartum roles, psychological problems worsen, and they are more likely to be depressed and overwhelmed.Not enough confidence in successful breastfeeding.
The changes in human neuroendocrine are largely restricted by psychological factors. Bad psychological factors will affect the pituitary secretion of prolactin, while the elderly affect milk secretion.
Studies have confirmed that relieving tension can promote milk secretion. Therefore, for new moms who have a caesarean section, the family should give more care, care, encouragement, and attention to her mood changes, and help new moms by comforting words and practical actionsRelieving her worries and making her realize the joy of “beginning mother” will help milk secretion.
Key 4 Hug-sitting breastfeeding-Mummy is comfortable and convenient. Baby can effectively suck the position of the new mother to feed, which directly affects the position of the baby’s mouth containing the nipple.
When the mummy is in the supine position, the nipples and surrounding areolas are not easy to protrude, the baby is not easy to cover the nipples and most of the areolas, and the lateral lying position is not conducive to forming a good inclusive posture.
The baby’s articulation posture is not good, which may easily cause mummy’s nipple pain and nipple cracking.
Although seated breastfeeding should be the best position, new moms who have a caesarean section will easily rub off the dressing due to abdominal pain or overcome pressure and friction in the first few days, often in a semi-sitting position.
In fact, there is a cuddling sitting breastfeeding method that is more suitable for new moms who have a caesarean section. This way, the mom is comfortable and convenient, and the baby can suck milk effectively.

Babies easily cover nipples and areolas, and perform effective sucking. This can ensure effective sucking time, properly suck the nipples and most areolas, and prevent new moms from having nipple pain and nipple cracking, which affects breast milk replacement.
Effectively suck or promote the reflex of ejection and the secretion of prolactin, which is beneficial to breast emptying and increased milk secretion.
In addition, the new mommy is satisfied with breastfeeding, enhances the confidence of breastmilk replacement, reduces milk swelling, and promotes uterine recovery.
