Technique of Breastfeeding

The mother & the baby should be in a comfortable position.

Feeding in sitting position :

  • The mother holds the baby in an inclined upright position on her lap.
  • The baby’s head on her forearm on the same side close to her breasts , the neck is slightly extended.
  • The infant’s mouth is wide open and chin touches the breast .
  • The infants ear , shoulder and hip are in one line and there must be chest to chest contact of the infant and mother.

 

 

Feeling in lateral position :

  • It can be followed in caesarean delivery or with painful perineum is carried out by placing the baby along her side between the trunk and the arm

Recommendation , don’t forget: All babies swallow varied amount of air during sucking . To break up the wind , the baby should be held upright against the chest and the back is gently patted till the baby belches out the air .

Caution: Artificial nipple is strictly discouraged as baby get confused between Artificial nipple and mothers nipples and lactation failure develops.
