Mother`s milk, as a general rule, is the best nourishment for your baby. It contains simply everything that your baby needs in the first few months to flourish and grow. In addition, breast milk also offers your infant protection against infections and illnesses and it can also reduce the risk of allergies, obesity and diabetes. No other baby food offers your baby the level of protection that breast milk does.

Mother`s milk - the best thing for your baby

 

Mother`s milk, as a general rule, is the best nourishment for your baby. It contains simply everything that your baby needs in the first few months to flourish and grow. In addition, breast milk also offers your infant protection against infections and illnesses and it can also reduce the risk of allergies, obesity and diabetes.

No other baby food offers your baby the level of protection that breast milk does.

 

Note

Renowned organisations such as UNICEF and WHO (World Health Organisation) recommend breastfeeding exclusively for the first six months of your baby`s life.

 

But in addition to these benefits there are also some very practical reasons for breastfeeding:

  • breast milk is completely germ-free,
  • is always available,
  • is at just the right temperatue and
  • helbs reduce your household budget.

Some women have particulary sensitive nipples. If your nipples are sore, chapped, cracked or bleeding you should seek advice from your midwife. Sore nipples can make breastfeeding traumatic, as it becomes particularly painful when your infant is sucking.

We recommend you do the following to help the nipples recover: 

  • Allow air to circulate freely around the breast
  • Express a few drops of milk after breastfeeding and let them dry on the nipple - breast milk is a perfect healer
  • Take extra care with the nipple that is particularly painful, by only allowing your baby to suck for a short time on that breast. Express the remaining milk.
  • Use nipple shields if the pain is severe.
  • With severe pain a breast pump can offer relief. The suction strength can be adjusted to permit a gentle pumping action, thus helping with the healing process.

 Breast pump

It might be necessary for you and your baby to be apart at times. In this case we recommend the use of an electric or manual breast pump. These allow healthy breast milk to be expressed to and given to your baby later, at the same time maintaining milk production for breastfeeding. You will need to use the pump regularly, otherwise your body will receive unwanted signals to prepare for weaning and will start reducing the production of milk.

Nipple Shields

Should breastfeeding become dificult due to sore or sensitive nipples, the tried-and-tested nipple shield made of latex or silicone will help here.

Breast Gel Cushion

Cold compresses relive pain caused by plugged milk ducts and breast infections. They should be put in the refrigerator and never in the freezer compartment. Cold compresses should only be used after breastfeeding, as warmth is required before feeding to ensure optimum milk flow. The Breast Gel Cushion offers a double benefit: it can be used both as a cold compress and as a heat pad for stimulating milk flow.

Breast pads

The breasts continually leak fluid during the breastfeeding period. Breast pads absorb this milk, keeping clothes dry. In order to prevent nipples from becoming sore, you should choose a breast pad that traps the fluid in the inside of the pad. Provided you change the pads after every feed, you will be able to prevent breast infections effectively.
