How often should you nurse your baby or pump breast milk?
You should nurse the baby every time he/she is hungry. The baby will suck his fist, stick out his tongue, or get fussy when he's hungry. A newborn will likely want to nurse every two hours. If you use a bottle for some of the feedings, you should pump at the same time the baby eats. This will encourage your breasts to make milk in the right quantities and at the right times for your child.

Answer . \nEach pregnancy is different. There is nothing to be worried about.
breast milk is best for babies but an alternate is baby formulawhich still is good for baby because it has all the nutrients,vitamins for development. i think people only say …breast milk is best for babies because itsconvienient, the right temperature, its the easiest way rather thanthose mothers who cant be bothered getting up and making a bottle.Answer What an unintelligent reply, Breastmilk is best overall,Formula will NEVER be as nutritionally whole as breastmilk is, thefact that they add stuff like Fish and other animals to formula toincrease the nutritional benefits is enough to turn most mothersinto breastfeeding advocates. Formula was never infact meant to bean alternate, infact it was meant to be created as an emergencyonly supplement in the chance that the baby would not breastfeed,and there were no wetnurses available to nurse the child. The otherfact is that your answer most likely does not relate to thequestion at all as the asker might also be wanting to know ifToddlers or children could also drink it, heck they might also beasking if adults could... all of which is Yes, they can. Answer: According to the World Health Organization, mothers shouldbegin breastfeeding their babies within an hour of birth andbreastfeed them exclusively for six months.
It's best to research it on LLLI.org. They have the latest up to date info on breastmilk and all the advantages. if you knew what they did to cows milk to make it suitable for… babies then you' never use it.
YES!!!! . Although it's extremely rare! In case a baby shows an allergic reaction to breast mik, it is more likely that it reacts to foods which the mother eats, as they pas…s through the breast milk into the baby's digestive system.. On many sites (especially on forums) you read that "babies are never allergic to breast milk". This is NOT true! It is very rare though. There is a genetic disease called methylmalonic acidaemia ( MMA ). This condition means that the baby is unable to breakdown protein and thus the protein in the milk is poisoning the whole body. This is a very serious situation and can eventually result in the babies death, if the breastfeeding continues (see http://www.itv.com/Lifestyle/ThisMorning/Health/AllergictoBreastMilk123/default.html).. More info here: http://children-allergy.com/is-your-baby-allergic-to-your-breastmilk . In very rare cases a mother's immune system can create antibodies (transmitted through the breast milk) that can be harmful to her baby. In that rare case, the baby cannot continue breastfeeding and the mother will be offered a shot by her medical doctor to prevent this kind of immune response in future childbearing. Again that's very rare, and the number one symptom of that is SEVERE jaundice.. If you suspect that your child is suffering from food-allergy you should consult with your pediatrician. Unfortunately many pediatricians are reluctant to conclude that a child is allergic to food. Your may have to fight your corner. Also many are hesitant to tell a mother to drop things from her diet, because they're concerned about her nutrition. Stand your ground and if your pediatrician refuses to listen to your concerns, you can ask to be referred to an allergist.
I have had to this myself and this is the method I used. You need to express breast milk between feedings when the baby will not be nursing. For example, if your baby feeds e…very 4 hours, you can manually express or pump milk 2 hours after the baby has eaten. This would also be 2 hours before your baby feeds again allowing for refilling of the breast before the next feeding. If your baby sleeps at a long interval at a certain time, such as nap or bedtime, you should try to express the milk then. After doing this for a few days, you will begin to produce more milk than your baby needs so you can start to store some. You need to make sure that your milk supply does not decrease when going back to work, though. If you are gone for many hours, you may need to pump milk at some time during your shift, depending on how long your shift is and whether or not you have noticed having less milk. You may also experience leaking or engorgement while away from baby, as I had this problem. I used to take some sterilized bottles with me to work and manually express once or twice on breaks. I would then put the bottles into a lunchbox in the refrigerator to take home to add to my supply. This helped me to have an adequate supply while working long hours away from my baby. After getting yourself used to this routine, it will take less time to express the milk. It used to take me about 5-8 minutes to fill an 8oz. bottle.

Breastmilk overall is a healthier choice and contains natural ingredients, that are not just supplements found in formula. Breastfeeding has also been proven to reduce the ris…k of babies developing allergies. Breastfeeding can also reduce the number of and severity of conditions such as ear infections, bacterial meningitis and has even been proven to reduce the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) and asthma.
Yes! Without the use of a breast pump the milk can and will dry up...not good. Pumping encourages more production, so pump and feed and pump. take a break. feed, pump, feed. p…ump, feed, pump. feed, pump, feed.. you get the idea.
My child is consistently waking at night to nurse and I'm not sure if it's due to hunger or habit. How often and how many ounces of breast milk should a nine month old be eating each day?
It's quite normal for a breastfed baby to be waking through the night at nine months of age. On-demand feeding is the best way to maintain a good milk supply.
I'm A mom of 2 and I breastfed both them and it hurts. They suck so hard on your nipples
Yes all mammals suckle their young with milk.
GUESS: At least 3 times a day.
Yes you should throw away the contaminated milk and sanitize the pump according to the manufacturer's instruction before using it again.
In Lactation and Breastfeeding
Breast milk passes on the immunity to diseases etc that the mother has built up over her lifetime. Additionally, it is nutritionally better than 'formula' milk.
In Lactation and Breastfeeding
When colostrum comes in during late pregnancy, your nipples can leak it. However, you should NOT pump before you are considered full term, as pumping simulates breastfeeding, …which in turn causes your uterus to contract. The contraction of the uterus by way of nipple stimulation (breastfeeding/pumping) can cause you to go into Pre-Term labor, before your baby is ready to be born.
In Care of Rabbits
Baby bunnies, called "kits", nurse only once, or twice a day. Don't worry if you don't see the doe,(mommy rabbit), nursing them. They often nurse when your not around. The doe… also nurses standing up, they don't nurse laying down like a dog or cat.
In Breast Pumps
Generally speaking you want to pump every 2 to 3 hours for fifteen minutes at a time. Many exclusively pumping moms find that their breast milk supply will drop over time. If …it does you will want to use something like Breastea. Then just keep pumping 15 minutes at a time.
In Breast Pumps
Medela breast pumps are highly rated and have a wide selection of types and configurations. The best breast pump is partly a matter of personal choice.
