Newborn baby: Do not use feeding bottle at the very beginning

Baby cries piteously for food, but mother has no breast milk temporarily, at this time, some parents are afraid that babies will feel hungry, so they begin to feed babies with feeding bottle. But in fact, babies still store a number of nutrition which can maintain their lives, so they are not very eager to eat. If in the hot summer, baby perspires much, parents can use spoon to feed him some water. But parents do not use the feeding bottle absolutely, and cannot use the feeding bottle to feed him powdered milk.

Under usual circumstance, it is easier for baby to suckle rubber nipple than suckle breast milk. If baby has been fed powdered milk with feeding bottle after he was born, and then feeding him with breast milk, baby will easy to have the nipple illusion and especially easy to appear milk refused, fidget and other phenomena, cause breast-feeding difficulty, which not only makes baby cannot absorb the nutrient substance contained in puerpera's colostrum, but also makes mother's breast bulged and induce mastitis.

Those who never suckled mother's colostrum are easy to suffer from diarrhea, upper respiratory tract infection and even pneumonia. Therefore, even if the mother's breast milk is insufficient, you may also let baby try to suckle mother's nipple constantly, and baby's suction strength will stimulate the breasts and urge the secretion of breast milk, at the same time, it can also urge mother's uterus redintegration and reduce postpartum hemorrhage.
