Breastfeeding is one of the most natural things in the world, it’s a precious moment shared between a mother and child. Breast milk provides the ideal nutrition for infants. It has a nearly perfect mix of vitamins, protein, and fat — everything your baby needs to grow. And it’s all provided in a form more easily digested than baby milk formula. It contains antibodies that can help your child to fight off infections. The list of benefits is endless. Whether breastfeeding comes naturally or takes a little while to get the hang of, there are still some problems that can crop up or make the process a bit tricky. Common Challenges for Breast Feeding Mothers Sore Nipples- improper positioning or not latching on properly can cause your nipples to become sore or cracked, this then makes it uncomfortable next time and can lead to you stop breastfeeding. Moist heat and ointments can help to treat sore nipples. Breast Engorgement- is caused by an increase in blood supply and milk in the breast tissue. The breasts can become firm, hot and tender. Cold therapy will relieve the pain and swelling and use heat therapy before feeding to improve milk flow. Blocked Milk Ducts- milk ducts can become blocked and prevent milk flow which will aggravate the problem of engorgement. Applying heat to the breast can unblock the milk ducts. Weaning- when weaning your baby, your breasts can produce more milk than is required, this can lead to the breast tissue becoming firm and tender. Cold therapy after feeding can reduce milk production and relief the discomfort.
