    Tip

    That's how I breastfeed my baby!

    Exclusive breastfeeding should be done for the first six months atleast if you are producing enough milk that is. This gives the baby all the required nutrients and better immunity to fight against bacteria and viruses. Some more breastfeeding tips are listed below.

    1. Looking for early signs of wanting to be fed like opening her mouth in search of milk, making sucking sound, putting her hand into her mouth. Do not wait for her to cry because thats a late hunger sign.
    2. Sit with back support so that you are comfortable or lie down comfortably using pillows for support. Shoulders should be relaxed and place a pillow on your lap if sitting and feeding. This will bring the baby to your breast and not your breast to the baby and it will make both you and your baby comfortable. If you lean and bring your breast to the baby then you can have severe back troubles.
    3. Hold your breast with four fingers underneath and thump on top, away from the areola. Express a few drops of milk as this will awaken your baby's taste buds and help her suck better.
    4. Dont push the back of baby's head while offering her your breast for feeding. Instead gently hold the bottom of her neck and bring her near to your breast.
    5. Dont see the clock. Let the baby come off the first breast on her own and then offer the second one if needed.
    6. When the baby is done being fed, hold her up with her face on your shoulder and burp her. After sometime make the baby lie on her stomach so that any extra milk comes out and there is no discomfort to the baby.
    7. If you are producing enough milk then my advise would be to stay away from formula milk and exclusive breastfeeding should be done atleast for the first six months.
    8. Dont use pacifiers and milk bottles as this may cause nipple confusion for babies. Also once babies get used to bottles for milk then they dont want to go back to breastfeeding as sucking breasts require more energy and sucking milk from bottle is easier.

    These are tips from my personal experience. All babies are different and react differently. All the above tips are based on me and my babies reaction and experience
