Common Problems during Breast Feeding

Common Problems during Breast Feeding

There’s no second though required to state the fact that motherhood is challenging. A new mother goes through various problems and difficulties in the first phase, one of the most common being problems related to breast feeding.

We got in touch with Dr. Neha Bansal to know about the most commonly faced problems during breastfeeding and how they can be tackled.

Latching Pain

The most common and the first kind of pain that a new mother goes through are sore breasts when the baby first sucks on. If the pain persists after a minute of latching, you might want to check the position. If it still persists, ask for a cream from your gynecologist or newborn baby specialist.

Cracked Nipples

Cracked nipples are a common problem during the first month of breast-feeding. In fact, there can be a little blood too. Though a little blood won’t harm the baby, it can be painful for the mother. As the conditions can vary woman to woman, it is best recommended to take help from a professional is the problem is severe.

Frequent Feeding

Even though women do think it to be a problem, it isn’t. Babies have small stomachs and they need to feed on frequently to keep full. In fact, it is also good for the breastfeeding mother as the supply of milk is good when fed frequently.

Plugged Duct

If you feel a tender area around the areola, it might be a plugged duct. It happens because the milk isn’t draining completely. If you feel feverish along with, there’s a danger of spreading infection. You must contact your gynecologist immediately in that case.

Some of the problems are temporary and you can get rid of them with the help of traditional remedies. But if the symptoms aren’t relieved, you must consult a specialist before it gets worse.
