FAQ Breastfeeding


  1. Does breastfeeding hurt?

A: NO! Breastfeeding is NOT supposed to hurt. Maybe an uncomfortable senstation when your baby latches on (goes drinking on the breast), but it definitely does not hurt or continue to hurt. If it does, ask someone for help, most often it’s because the baby is not latching on properly. With just some help/adjustment, this can be helped. Call us for help.

  1. How long is breastfeeding beneficial for the baby?

A: Breastfeeding exclusively for baby’s first 6 months, until it starts on solids like pureed vegetables and fruits, is essential for its health & development. Beyond 6 months up until 2 to 4 years old, breastfeeding/breastmilk will continue to deliver enough nutrients to be of ADDED VALUE! However, it remains a choice how long you continue, the milk will continue to deliver its extra goodness for as long as you choose to breastfeed.

  1. I don’t have any/enough milk, should I supplement with artificial milk?

A: Before you start supplementing, try and find out, with our help or a laction consultant, why you think you don’t have enough. As long as the baby is growing and gaining weight, you’re doing OK. However it’s always good to address your concerns and get answers so you are not feeling too stressed! Call us.

  1. What can I do to increase my milk supply?

A: Drink lots of water, get plenty of rest, be relaxed and try not to stress or remove stress factors if possible. Eat healthy with lots of vegetables and fruits, as little caffeine and alcohol as possible. Then there are some herbal supplements like ‘Fenugreek’ in tablet form, sesame seeds (zjozjoli), Mother’s Tea at Health stores, Anise and some others.

  1. How do I know if my baby is getting enough milk?

A: Is he crying when he is at the breast? Is he growing at a normal rate (weight gain), is he alert when he is awake? Then he is probably getting enough. However, never ignore your instincts, so if you think something might not be right, get help immediately just to make sure. Call us or a laction consultant, your doctor or someone close to you who is also experienced.
