Day 2 of 8: World Breastfeeding Week Contest 🥳
We hope you've answered yesterday question 💬 ✅ Here's Day 2 question waiting for you to answer 😉
Right at the start, it was nipple shield because of inverted nipples. But i found it more of a hindrance and decided to just let baby latch on. Thank God, his suckle was so good that the nipples began to protrude and remain standing ever since. I have been wearing the silver cups ever since I gotten them in a bid to heal sore nipples. These cups are magical! Protects my nipples from fabric abrasion and I've never had any nipple issues after wearing them. I also don't need to apply any nipple balm anymore. Before and after latching, I will usually drink a cup of water about 200 ml. I think it has helped me to lactate better. Previously, I had taken lecithin during the first month due to clogged ducts. But once baby's latch was established, I went lecithin free. I have been taking the supplements from gynae though: multi-vit w iron, fish oil and calcium. So the 3 essential breastfeeding items for me are: - silver cups - water - supplementsRead more
My 3 breastfeeding essentials are: 1) Haakaa silicone breast pump I use it to catch the other boob milk while i feed on the other side. It helps to have extra milk when needed without pumping.😉 2) Nursing/ pregnancy pillow This helps me to rest my arms on while feeding. It’s also an easy transition from nursing to a sleeping pillow for my baby without making too much movement.💪🏽 3) Water bottle To keep me hydrated coz I always feel so thirsty while nursing.❤️Read more
The most 3 essentials would be: 1. Good nursing bra. Especially as a full-time working mom, this is one of best investment to go in a long run for my child while still breastsfeeding. 2. Lanolin nipple cream Helps to soothe after breastfeeding. Prevents sore and cracked nipples. 3. A flask of warm water It is important to hydrate in order to compensate for the extra water that is used to make milk. Keep hydrated.Read more
I stop pumping for my little one. So I have been latching her directly. The 3 essentials for me are: 1. A comfortable nursing cover both for me and baby. This is a life saver. I can breastfeed anytime and anywhere . 2. Be hydrated always. 3. Calcium. You are losing a lot of calcium so you need to replace it with either milk, calcium rich food or supplements.Read more

For me breastfeeding, most essential would be eating food that increases lactation, then would be choosing the right time to breastfeed, and lastly cleaning nipples before and after breastfeeding. 😊
