Pregnancy and childbirth change the hormonal background of the female body, preparing it for the process of feeding a newborn. Great changes occur in the mammary glands.
They increase in volume due to the filling of the glandular lobules with milk. Areoles and nipples also increase and darken. This is a normal physiological phenomenon. From each glandular lobule leaves the milky duct. Further the milk ducts are connected to each other and open in the areola area with lacteal sinuses.
In the first weeks of the onset of breastfeeding in the mammary glands, the process of discharging milk can be disturbed, which leads to its stagnation and the appearance of seals. If the process of milk yield is not timely normalized, inflammatory changes occur in the breast with a rise in temperature, both local and general. The development of mastitis can become a threatening condition not only for the continuation of breastfeeding, but for the life of a woman. To violations of the allocation of milk and the formation of areas of stagnation is the wrong technique of feeding.

How to put the baby to the breast correctly

In order to remove the seal, you need to regularly express the milk. However painful it may be, the densest places should be carefully massaged. Direction of movement from the seal to the areola. Before carrying out the massage, attach the baby to the chest so that the chin lies closer to the seal.
In the process of feeding, squeeze the chest in this place, trying as much as possible to facilitate the child's sucking process. After feeding, hold the breast under a stream of warm water, then carefully wipe and lubricate with baby cream. After massaging the place of compaction, apply for a few minutes to this site cold to reduce the phenomenon of edema and prevent the development of inflammation.

Froo o: Hi bethie. How many mg of b6 did you take for nausea. I got some from the health food store and just noticed it’s 100mg. Most research recommends 10- 25mg every 8hrs
Yaqi Wo: Hi Bethie, it is me again. I got a 3rd HCG measured yesterday and the result came back today, and worried me a little that I want to hear what is your experience. My first HCG were prescribed by my primary care physician, I bought my third one because I am not seeing obvious darkening of my home pregnancy strips like I have seen in many other people. I am not comparing numbers but at least trends and how long it takes to double. So my numbers are : 18DPO, 924 20DPO, 1825 24 DPO, 3958 so the first two numbers doubled nicely, but the recent one took almost 4 days to double, which worries me a lot! What is your experience? I found many answers online, some say mine is rising slow, some says it is okay to take 96hours to double once the level is between 1200-6000. I contacted my pcp and haven’t heard back. My first OB appointment is next week so I don’t have any OB yet. Your opinion and experience will help me a lot! Thanks!!
Yaqi Wo: I love what you said about watching other women’s real experience so it can help you process what you are going through, that is exactly how I like to do and process my pregnancy. It is my first baby, and I don’t know anything about what is right and wrong, even though I read as much as I can, so watching your channel helps me a great deal! Especially I can see that you are very knowledgeable and very healthy and fit!
Yaqi Wo: Also how soon did you lose weight with Summer and Anakin were born? My BMI is 19.3, I am 5’11”, I love zumba, biking, tennis, weight training, body toning, now with COVID, I haven’t done much apart from some weights here and there, my belly starts to have more fat than I like, it bothers me.
Yaqi Wo: Hi Bethie, I am new to your channel but I absolutely love it! I am 5 weeks and 3 days now. I have always been fit and love exercising, so it is a sort of challenge for me to gain weight consciously in this new way, every time I step on the scale, I am torn between is that the right weight gain so far or it is too much that I can gain less and still be healthy. Love all the advise you have!
