At the beginning of the new year, Zhang Ziyi posted a photo on Weibo, announcing the good news of having a safe child, and was blessed by many celebrity friends and netizens. In addition to sharing his joy, Zhang Ziyi also shared some of his postnatal experience.
On January 5th, Zhang Ziyi posted a long post on Weibo to share his painful feelings and physiological relief from postpartum breast milk.
Netizens cheered for Zhang Ziyi and said that their mother was really great. Xiao Bian was also touched, each of them was not easy.
But is it really difficult to break the curse of "raising milk"?
Raising milk can actually be avoided
Let's first understand which conditions are more likely to cause breast swelling in the early postpartum period:
Therefore, if severe breast swelling occurs early in the postpartum period, we can compare the above checklist and take a symptomatic approach to promote the effective removal of breast milk, which can relieve breast swelling.
，靠不靠谱，关键看这几点： In addition, if the second-born mother has had a bad breastfeeding experience, then look for a "reliable" breastfeeding consultant before giving birth, so that early contact-early sucking , unreliable, depend on these points:
Key points to avoid severe breast swelling:
1. If possible, start breastfeeding within 1 hour after giving birth and breastfeed frequently (> 8 times / 24 hours).
2. Ensure that the baby is well connected.
3. If the baby is "drowsy", keep the mother-baby in skin contact and always be concerned about his signal of hunger.
4, some babies will appear intensive feeding (feeding even more per hour), this is normal, we need to focus on the child, not the clock.
5. Empty one breast each time you breastfeed, and alternately provide breasts on both sides.
6. When the mother and baby are separated, use appropriate methods to remove milk, such as milking by hand, choose a suitable breast pump (very important and easy to ignore), and use it properly.
Even so, some mothers still sorrowfully raised their milk early, so is the experience shared by Zhang Ziyi feasible?
What to do in the early stage?
In the comments, the editor found that some netizens questioned the experience shared by Zhang Ziyi.
In order to answer the doubts of netizens, Xiaobian specifically consulted the breastfeeding experts at Red House Hospital.
Doctor, what do you think?
Hot compress before feeding? Cold compress after feeding?
即可，并且是温热敷 ，温热敷配合轻推/晃乳房 ，可以刺激喷奶反射，促进乳汁移出。 Hot compresses before breastfeeding are possible, but not 10 minutes, 2-3 minutes , and warm compresses . Warm compresses, combined with nudge / shake the breast , can stimulate milk reflex and promote milk removal.
Cold compresses are recommended after breastfeeding to relieve pain and swelling. 。 If you cannot accept ice, you can choose to apply refrigerated stored cabbage and potato chips on the surface of swollen breasts to avoid nipple and areola . If you don't mind the ice pack, then put a small amount of small peas in a bag and freeze it, and apply it to the breast swelling.
Massage from the bottom?
In fact, for severe breast swelling, we recommend the trans compression technique, which is helpful to alleviate breast edema. The purpose is to temporarily push some of the swollen tissue fluid, blood, etc. to the breast, and temporarily reduce areola edema to help the baby contain it. The specific method is as follows:
1. Shorten your nails;
2. Put your fingers on both sides of the nipple, and press the pressure towards the chest, slowly counting to 50;
3. The breast should be pressed in every direction;
4. Balance your strength and avoid pain.
Remember not to "violently open the milk." "Violence to open milk" is to repeatedly rub the breast like dough, not only the process is unbearable, but also increase breast edema, more serious, it may also cause damage to breast tissue.
时，添加配方奶是最不推荐的。 When adding milk , adding formula is the least recommended.
In clinical practice, there are many mothers who want to add formula milk to their babies. The reason is that the babies will not suck out because their breasts are so big. But in fact, babies are born "gourmets." Blindly adding formula and using bottle nipples will continue to worsen the problem of breastfeeding.
Is there a relationship between diet and milk?
There is no necessary connection between diet and increasing milk. The lactation diet is not too particular about it.
The diet is generally recommended to be light, less oily, and milk is called white blood. There is a difference between the maintenance of milk ducts and the maintenance of blood vessels. It is not advisable to ingest too much oil to avoid clogging the ducts and easily cause milk stasis.
In addition, novices must take in sufficient water, 90% of the milk is water, and it is necessary to drink a cup of warm water after breastfeeding. But hydration and soup ca n’t be mixed up. The folk rumors of trotter soup and catfish soup have prolactin effect, but these are icing on the cake. They must match the baby's sufficient sucking on the breast so that the milk can be effectively removed before it can work. Drink soup in moderation, skim off the oil, and a bowl with the meal is enough.
Finally, I emphasize again that frequently and effectively letting your baby suck your mother's breasts in the first few days of birth is the most effective way to avoid breast milk.
