When I go milk?
your real milk will appear on the second to the fifth day after the birth of your child, depending on whether, first there is a child from fatigue level after previous births on how well your child is learning to take your chest, and howoften and how effectively your baby sucks.Until the moment your milk your baby receives colostrum, the predecessor of milk is very rich in protein, immune factors and the other ingredients, bringing many benefits to your newborn.For about a week you develop a transitional milk, whose composition changes gradually from predominantly colostrum to milk mainly.By the tenth to fourteenth day after birth your milk becomes mature.The following factors will help your milk come sooner and will save you from many problems:

How often and how long to feed your baby?
«Look at your child and not on the clock," - that's the advice of experienced professionals on breastfeeding.Breastfeed - it does not solve mathematical problems;as I called for one nursing mother: "I do not think the number of feedings, just as I do not consider the number of kisses."In the first weeks of breastfeeding the baby sucks with varying degrees of intensity, chaotic and sometimes for a long time - even for an hour.Most often, the child falls asleep while feeding, and then wakes up in half an hour, and requires to be fed again.Remember, frequency of feedings to a greater extent than the duration, stimulates the production of your hormones responsible for milk production.
your nipples will not get sick because you feed too much, as long as you occupy the right position and your baby takes the breast correctly.Pass on deaf ears this advice: "Start with three minutes on each side, and gradually increase the time by one minute at each feeding until your baby will not suck ten minutes on each side.Ten minutes is enough. "Not kids wrote these strict rules, and experienced nursing mothers.It can often be missed sucking two minutes to activate the reflex milk-breeding the young mother.Mature, robust newborns may require longer time to get a hearty meal, while the greedy consumers can empty the chest before the expiration of ten
minutes.After a few months of breastfeeding, the mother and child are together in harmony, many children are able to obtain all required them milk in the first ten minutes, but most children still lingers at the breast to suck a little longer.Remember that pain is caused by improper capture of nipples and breasts sucking wrong, and not the duration of suckling.Even three minutes at the wrong sucking chest or wrong capture enough nipples are sick.In reality
expect during the first month or up to six weeks of age, your child will take the breast, on average every two hours, day and night.Then the frequency of feedings decreases gradually.In the first weeks, when you and your child set the appropriate level of milk production, let your baby to take the breast as often and suck on for as long as he wants, and it allows your rhythm life.Once the level of milk production have been established and you are with your child come to a mutually convenient schedule, but without frequent breastfeeding schedules are still preferred, your child will probably agree to other forms of comfort, in addition to frequent breastfeeding.
