This implies, however, an awareness on the part of the mother's own health and her child is essentially dependent. Healthy, nutritious and digestible milk can be purchased only from a healthy parent, and it is against common sense to think that if a mother on her health and digestion by improper diet, neglect of exercise, and impure air, but it may if a healthy and intact fluid for her child as if she were diligently attentive to these important points. Every instance of indisposition nurse could affect the baby.
And that leads me to observe that it is a common misconception that because a woman is a nurse, she should live fully and completely, and adding an allowance of wine, porter, or other fermented liquor, its diet. The only result of this plan is to cause a degree of fullness in the natural system, which places the nurse on the edge of the disease, which of itself often puts an end to the secretion of milk, instead of increasing it. The plan right approach is quite clear, and could not be paid to the ordinary laws of health, and the mother if she has a sound constitution, will make a better nurse than by any foolish deviation based on ignorance and caprice .
The following case demonstrates the correctness of this statement:
A young woman confined to her first child, she left the child in the bedroom end of third week, a good nurse, and perfectly healthy. He had some minor problems with her nipples, but this was soon overcome.
Intercom system was initiated, and a liter to a liter and a half of this beverage was taken in the clock. This was contested because there was no difference in milk supply, because it was plentiful and the baby growing in her, but because, having become a nurse, her said it was normal and necessary and that without her milk and strength could not survive.
After the plan had been followed for several days, the mother became drowsy and ready to sleep in the day, a headache, thirst, hot skin, in fact, came the fever, decreased milk quantity, and the first time, the stomach and intestines of the baby became a mess. The porter was ordered to stay out, corrective measures have been prescribed, and all symptoms in both parent and child, were dropped after a while, and restore health.
Having been accustomed, before becoming a mother for a glass of wine or two, and sometimes a glass of table beer, she was advised to follow precisely her former dietetic plan, but with the addition of half a pint of milk barley in the morning and afternoon. Parent and the child remains in excellent health for the rest of the head, and test the artificial food until the ninth month, the milk is all-sufficient for their needs.
No one can doubt that the porter was in this case, the source of evil. The patient had gone into the lying-in room in perfect health, had a good time and left the room (comparatively) as strong as it is entered. Its constitution had not been previously worn by repeated pregnancies and nursing, she had an ample supply of milk, and was perfectly able to perform the duties that now fell to her, without resorting to unusual or challenging support . Her previous habits were totally at odds with the plan that was adopted, the system became too full, the disease was produced, and the outcome is nothing more than what you might expect.
The plan, which followed the first six months. Until the milk is fully established, it can not be until the second or third day after birth (almost always so in the first birth), the child will need to add a little jelly 'thin, or when the third water and two thirds milk, sweetened with sugar, bread.
After this time, you must obtain your food within itself, and for a week or ten days the appetite of children must be the guide of the mother, the frequency of offering the breast. The stomach at birth is low, and yet unaccustomed to food needs, therefore, are easy to satisfy, but which are renewed frequently. An interval, however, is not enough to digest swallowed, is obtained before the appetite revived, and a new supply is needed.
At the end of a week or two, it is fundamentally necessary, and some children, this can be done safely from the first day of food, for the treatment of children at regular intervals of three or four hours, day and night. This allows enough time for each meal is digested, and tends to keep the bowels of children in order. Such regularity, moreover, will do much to prevent irritability and constant crying, which looks like it could be appeased only by constantly putting the child inside.Tips About Breastfeeding
Young mother very frequently runs into a serious error in this particular regard to each phrase a disagreement demonstrates the appetite, and whenever the baby cries, offering the breast, although ten minutes have passed since the last meal. It is a harmful and even dangerous, in practice, overloading the stomach, the food remains undigested, the child's bowels are always in the wrong order, becomes restless and feverish, and can now simply lost when participating in the above rules of nursing, the child would become healthy and strong.
For the same reason, children who sleep with their parents should not allow the nipple still in his mouth all night. If it is as suggested, is to awaken, as the hour draws to a meal, with great regularity. Referring to food at night, I suggest that breastfeeding as late as ten hours, and put it back until five the next morning. Many mothers have adopted this indication, with great advantage for their own health, and without any prejudice to the child. With the latter, which quickly becomes a habit of driving, however, must be learned early.
The previous plan, and without variation, must be continued for the sixth month.
After the sixth month of the weaning period, if the parents have a lot of good and nourishing milk, and baby is healthy and thriving on it of course no change in his diet should be done. If not, however (and this is going, but too often the case even before the sixth month) the child can be fed two times during the day and type of food chosen which, after a small sample is to agree the better.
