Video consultation: More helpful tips from a breastfeeding specialist

Many young breastfeeding mothers are faced with issues related to the termination of breastfeeding.

Up to what age the baby needs breast milk, when and how to start weaning from the child and how to stop lactation if necessary, told a breastfeeding counselor, psychologist, head of the Molochnye Rivers Center Kseniya Solovey.

UAUA.info:Up to what age should you breastfeed?

According to the WHO recommendation, the optimal feeding period is 2 years. Exclusively breast milk in the baby’s diet should be up to 6 months.

If the mother is healthy, she can continue breastfeeding, even if she needs to go to work. All this can and should be organized.

The period from six months to two years is a transitional diet, soft folding of breastfeeding, adaptation of the child to adult food.It is by the age of 2, with the right diet, the body and mind of the baby are ready to eat adult food and not have any problems.

The relationship between mother and child must be honest, because the child is 100% trusted by the mother

UAUA.info:How and at what time of year is it better to wean a child?

Here we need to understand that weaning is a matter of time. This is not 3 days or even a week. For example, a breastfed baby cannot abruptly stop feeding without experiencing any psychological difficulties. The weaning process can last from six months to a year. In this regard, about any particular time of year is out of the question.

In the period of weaning a child from the breast, everything must be done gently and carefully. For example, one year old child, mother starts to wean him little by little. But this does not mean that it is necessary not to give the baby a full chest in the afternoon.

The first stage of weaning is restricting a child from feeding in public places, for example, on the street.

The second stage is the weaning of the child from intermediate feedings, the so-called calming feedings. Those. These are the feedings that happen if the baby is hurt or offensive.

The third stage is the restriction of the child from feeding during the daytime sleep.Here, the task of the mother is to teach the child a new way of falling asleep. This stage is not easy and rather long. This is a serious job, both for the child and for the mother. It can last 1-2 months, exactly as long as the child himself does not adapt to such innovation.

The final stage of weaning is the reduction of night feedings of the child. If the baby feeds at night 2 times, then you first need to reduce the feeding to one time, and then the baby can forget to wake up from time to time.

UAUA.info:Is it possible to use folk methods, such as spreading breast with mustard or brilliant green when weaning from the breast?

I believe that the relationship between mother and child should be honest. And if mom decided to wean a child, then she must first tell the baby about it. It should not be so that a one-year-old or one-and-a-half year old child is not aware of his mother's plans. In the case of mustard, for a baby, naturally, it will be stress if suddenly her mother's chest becomes bitter and tasteless.

In the case of green paint, this is a variant of the game on the feelings of the child. If one day the baby is told that the mother is in pain and the mother cannot give him a breast, this will cause a sincere feeling of pity for the child, and from the mother’s side this will be a hoax.

The relationship between mother and child must be honest, because the child 100% trusts the mother, he believes everything she says

UAUA.info:There are cases when you need to abruptly stop breastfeeding. How to be then?

I do not recommend lactation suppressants. All means that can be prescribed to stop the formation of breast milk abroad are used for completely different purposes. After all, all such drugs are hormonal, which can violate the integrity of the female body.

Therefore, it is better in this case to change the schedule, style of organization. In principle, for a week you can roll lactation, but not in one day.

For such a termination, it is necessary to decant the milk not completely, but to a comfortable state, and live like this until the next tide. During the next high tide it is better to endure, but if it’s really bad, you can again strain it a little. And so on throughout the week.

Surely, many have heard about the method of waist chest with an elastic bandage. But this method is very undesirable. After all, as a rule, in this case, the decanted empty chest is tugged. But this is a hormonal process, and the hormone prolactin does not disappear anywhere.And if in the body there was a request for the production of 500 g of milk, then the fact that the breast will be overtightened does not mean that the milk will not come there. When the chest waist, milk ducts are not blocked, and there is a danger of lactostasis and mastitis.

There is camphor oil that suppresses lactation. It should be used in the form of wraps. There is also a special tea to reduce lactation, which includes a sheet of walnut or sage.

But always think about the well-being of the baby. And do not forget: breast milk - the best food for the crumbs.
