Working mothers can also breastfeed, have you learned?

Babies aged 4 to 6 months are at the peak of growth and development, and the quality of nutrition is related to their future intellectual and physical development. Breastfeeding is still an option if the mother has enough breast milk. However, many working mothers need to return to work during this period, and how to breastfeed their babies has become their most troublesome problem. Returning to the workplace during breastfeeding is an inevitable thing. Then, 1-2 weeks before the end of maternity leave, it is necessary to adjust the baby's work and rest time and breastfeeding time, so that the baby has a process of adaptation. If the work place is close to home, you can feed your baby before going to work, feed once at home during the lunch break, feed once after get off work, plus several feedings at night, which can basically meet the needs of the baby. If you are far away from home, you need to express breast milk in advance to store it, ask family members or confinement nanny to feed it 1-2 times, and then return home at night to breastfeed. How to breastfeed working mothers To be a "milk bearer", of course, first of all is milking. Some mothers express milk with their own hands, and some mothers choose a milking machine. If you are expressing milk with your own hands, pay attention to cleaning and disinfecting your hands, and prepare a clean container that has been sterilized. Put your thumb on top of the areola and the other four fingers underneath to support the entire breast, and squeeze gently to allow the milk to flow into the container. When the milk stops flowing, relax for a moment, then squeeze gently. After doing this regular squeeze for three to five minutes, switch to the other breast for three to five minutes. Alternately, squeeze out the milk from both breasts. If you choose to express milk with a breast pump, you should also do cleaning work in advance, and follow the instructions of the breast pump. Moms can start the practice a week or two before work, and then use the expressed milk to feed the baby in a bottle, so that the baby can get used to bottle feeding. Now that you choose to breastfeed, no matter how busy you are at work, mothers should make sure to express milk every 3 hours. This can not only effectively prevent milk bloating, but also ensure the milk production, so that breastfeeding can be better continued.
