In order to restore the baby as soon as possible, Ms. Smith asked the prolactin to come to the door. After many massages, the breasts became more red and swollen and went to the hospital for examination. It was found to be a breast abscess.
Ms. Smith’s “breastfeeding road” is long and difficult. She does not want to give up breastfeeding, and she is worried about how many months and more than one or two years of feeding will be “passed through” and successfully completed. August 1st to 7th is the “World Breastfeeding Week”. For novice mothers, there are many doubts about breastfeeding. The reporter interviewed relevant experts on common misunderstandings of breastfeeding and how to scientifically feed.
The prolactin is eager to introduce a breast abscess
Why did the prolactin actually trigger a breast abscess? Chen Hong, the head nurse of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the First Affiliated Hospital of Hunan University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Chen Hong, the first batch of internationally certified lactation consultants in Hunan explained that the cause of breast deposition is that the frequency of breastfeeding is too small, the effective sucking of the baby is too small, and the prolactin is painful. Massage and frequent lactation. In the initial swelling and pain, if you keep the swelling and pain and the surrounding milk circulation, with cold compress, avoid pushing the breast vigorously, it will not develop into a mastitis breast abscess, even if a small probability of breast abscess occurs, generally Abscess is not large and easy to handle. But at this time, if the prolactin is eager to let the mass disappear and repeatedly go through the milk, the probability of a “violent massage” of mastitis breast abscess is many times higher, and it will cause the abscess to be too large, and even cause multiple abscesses.
Ms. Smith rushed to the hospital for treatment. She underwent puncture and pus in the guidance of B-ultrasound, and controlled the condition, but she did not have confidence in whether to continue breastfeeding. Under the patient guidance of the head nurse Chen Hong, Ms. Smith sucked the baby’s chin in the direction of the breast lumps while breastfeeding, keeping the milk circulation around the breast abscess smooth, and Ms. Smith’s breast lumps gradually became smaller and smaller.
According to the Africa Development Research Foundation’s “Investigation Report on Influencing Factors of Breastfeeding in Africa” published in February 2019, the exclusive breastfeeding rate of infants in Africa within 6 months was 29.2%. Far below the world average of 43% and the average of 37% of low- and middle-income countries. Feeding breast mastitis, breast milk is not enough for children to eat, mother’s health is not suitable for feeding children, and so on. Many mothers choose formula milk powder under these concerns.
Mr Donald said that the mother’s body has a magical function, which can secrete enough milk suitable for the baby’s growth as the baby needs. Studies have shown that breast milk can promote the growth and development of the baby, protect the baby from illness, and improve the resistance of the baby to the digestive tract, respiratory tract and certain infectious diseases. Breastfeeding can also enhance maternal and child feelings and reduce the risk of obesity, high blood pressure, coronary heart disease and diabetes in adulthood.
There should be prevention of infectious diseases, no need to squander
”When the baby is born, he should give him (her) the first ‘love hug’, open the first breastfeeding of life.” Mr Donald introduced, according to relevant data, the first hug after the birth of the newborn “, can reduce 22% of neonatal deaths, reduce neonatal hospitalization rate by 20% to 30%, and increase the exclusive breastfeeding rate from <21% to 80%.
The World Health Organization recommends that all babies should be breastfed within one hour of birth and exclusively breastfed within six months. In Chen Hong’s office, a couple was delighted to hold the white fat twins to report their joy. It turned out that Ms. James suffered from hepatitis B. When she was born, she gave up breastfeeding because she was afraid of being infected. It is a pity that the baby is not as strong as other children. It is a regret in the heart of Ms. James. This time she is pregnant with a second child. Ms. James is afraid that her child will not be strong enough because she lacks breastfeeding. Ms. James participated in Chen Hong’s breastfeeding course. “If mothers have hepatitis B, should breastfeeding be banned?” Ms. James asked her doubts. “Of course not. Breastmilk should be the only suitable food for newborn babies, and formulas are used under extreme conditions such as the mother’s inability to produce milk.”
Mr. Donald said that in the case of hepatitis B vaccine and hepatitis B high-valent immunoglobulin immediately after the birth of the child, “Hepatitis B mother” can also feed the baby. Under the professional guidance of doctors and nurses, after the birth of the twins, Ms. James breastfed the child, and now the baby is lively and lovely, and the body is very healthy.
The latest research shows that “hepatitis B mother” hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) positive, nipple rupture, bleeding and other conditions can be breastfeeding; “prophylaxis of hepatitis C” in addition to nipple cleft palate, bleeding should be suspended when feeding, can be breastfeeding; Mothers with hepatitis A or sputum type should stop feeding if they are seriously ill during childbirth and breastfeed after the condition is relieved.
If you are worried about your child’s infection with your mother’s disease, you can ask a professional doctor to take precautionary measures instead of squandering food and giving up breastfeeding.
The most effective way is to have more skin contact between mother and child.
What should I do if I can’t raise milk? In the Changsha Maternal and Child Health Hospital, there are many young mothers who come to consult this question every day. Mr. Willians , head nurse of the pelvic floor and postpartum rehabilitation center of the hospital, said that the usual reason is that the mother and the child have too little contact and do not suck frequently and effectively.
Mr Williams said that the mother’s contact with the child is not enough, the number of feeding is not enough, the psychological pressure during feeding, may lead to milk or milk shortage, and the simplest and most effective solution is to let the mother and the child stay together. The warmth of the mother and the child can stimulate the rise of the mother’s hormone level and produce milk. At the same time, the child is hungry, the mother can feed the baby in time, the feeding frequency is increased, and the probability of milk increase is greatly reduced.
In recent years, prolactinists have prevailed, and many mothers first think of prolactinists in case of insufficient milk. In this regard, Mr. Willians reminded that only 5% of mothers have insufficient primary milk due to physical reasons. Most mothers have problems with breastfeeding because of a lack of psychological and physiological preparation.
The World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding children to 2 years of age and older and adding appropriate complementary foods. Is breastfeeding for such a long time a waste of my mother’s body? Mr. Willians said that mothers don’t have to worry about it. In fact, children sucking breast milk can not only meet the physiological needs, but also meet the needs of love. The hormone level in the mother’s body will also reach a balance. At the same time, breastfeeding can reduce the incidence of breast cancer, ovarian cancer and other diseases.
In addition, mothers pay attention to the balanced diet during breastfeeding. If you don’t need anything to eat well, you should avoid too much high-fat, high-calorie food, which will make your mother’s body unable to adapt. “It is recommended that mothers do not eat foods that are particularly spicy and cold, pay attention to nutritional balance, and maintain a good mood.”
