Κατηγορία: Το ξεκίνημα
Proper positioning of both mother and baby when breastfeeding, and in particular the attachment of the baby to the breast, enables your baby to get enough breastmilk and can help to prevent sore nipples and insufficient milk supply. Make sure you are comfortable: either sitting up or lying in bed, or sitting in your favourite chair. Many mothers find it helpful to create a flat lap in the early days, either by elevating the feet or sitting on a pillow. Some mothers raise their babies to breast height, while others use the natural nurturing approach of holding their babies diagonally across their bodies.

Θηλασμός – Οι πρώτες ημέρες
In the first days, you and your baby are getting to know each other and everything is new to both of you. While breastfeeding is a natural process, there are still some bits you and baby will need to get the hang of, such as latching on, breastfeeding positions or breastfeeding in public, just to name a few.
Κατάθλιψη μετά τον τοκετό
The week after your baby is born (usually on day three) you may feel a little down, upset and irritable – this is known as the baby blues. The baby blues are extremely common, with 8 out of 10 mums experiencing some change in their mood the week after giving birth. If you think about what your body has just been through in labour, not to mention the past 9 months, then you understand that your body now needs to get back to how it was pre-pregnancy, not just physically but mentally too. The pregnancy hormones begin leaving your body when your breastmilk starts to come through, which is when you may feel the changes in your mood. They shouldn’t affect you for very long and usually pass within a couple of days and sometimes in a matter of hours. Women who successfully breastfeed have a decreased risk of developing postnatal depression, this is because the happy hormone, oxytocin, is realised every time you feed your little one.
