Mothers often worry about insufficient breast milk. And this problem usually is caused by various reasons, such as emotions, nutrition, medicines, and lactation techniques. Only when mothers consider these aspects can they solve the problem of insufficient breast milk.
Some new mothers will be very nervous when they see their babies eat less milk or cry after breastfeeding. They often blame themselves for not being fully prepared to prevent their babies from getting breast milk.
When mothers don't have enough milk, they must first eliminate tension. Usually, when lactation is insufficient, it's important to adjust their mental health.
Lactation is a complex neural reflex activity regulated by neurohumoral fluids. Excessive emotional stress and anxiety in nursing mothers can inhibit the secretion of prolactin and oxytocin in the body, resulting in less lactation.
Therefore, the way of producing more breast milk is to build mothers' confidence, keep the body and mind happy, and avoid excessive fatigue. In addition, the nutritional status of nursing mothers has a significant impact on the quality and quantity of milk.
Various nutrients in milk come from the mother's body. If the lactating mother is malnourished, the original nutrients in the mother's body will be used, or the mother's own tissue will be consumed to ensure the secretion of milk. If the mother is malnourished or picky eaters, or partial eclipse for a long time, it is bound to affect normal milk secretion.
Therefore, it is necessary to encourage nursing mothers to eat foods with high nutritional value, such as milk, soy milk, eggs, fish, lean vegetables, fruits, etc., to ensure that more than one-half of the protein in daily food comes from animal foods.
Having soups also has a good effect on promoting breast milk secretion. Crucian soup, soy trotter soup, boiled eggs in wine, and so on are all good choices.
It is necessary to make the baby suck milk early and suck frequently. Studies have shown that prolactin concentration in the mother's blood after breastfeeding can increase by 10 to 30 times compared to before breastfeeding. You can use the yoboo wireless electric breast pump with 27 levels of suction adjustment. This machine adopts Japanese spiral flow technology, providing gentle care for the baby without wasting every drop of breast milk. It has a variety of suction options for novices, working mothers, and mothers who need to pump every day, friendly and essential.
By stimulating and sucking the nipple, it can reflexively cause the pituitary gland to secrete a large amount of prolactin and further promote the secretion of milk.
Therefore, the baby should start to suck milk early and frequently. Even if you have little milk, you must persist, and try to empty the milk every time, so that the secretion of milk will be smooth and the amount will increase.
Avoid taking medicines or special foods, such as antithyroid medicines, atropine, hawthorn, malt, malted milk extract, etc., which will affect milk secretion. Mothers should avoid having them.
Finally, proper lactation can be achieved by combining food and prolactin medicines based on the above measures to promote milk secretion. Traditional Chinese acupuncture and prolactin prescriptions have certain curative effects and can be taken into consideration.
Nursing mothers need to produce more breast milk, and only when they find a method that suits them can they have satisfactory results.
