Feeding a child by the mother is one of the most natural natural processes. Unfortunately, it does not always go in an ideal way, and often causes unpleasant feelings to a woman. To date, many adaptations have been developed that make feeding more pleasant and comfortable, and also contribute to solving certain problems that used to make this process almost impossible.
Lining for breastfeeding is most often used in cases of irregular nipples or the presence of painful cracks on them.With their help, you can correct the shape and help the child to make the right grip, reducing possible traumatic effects, which in turn will promote the healing of cracks.
The lining on the chest will also allow the child to learn how to suck properly. This is especially true if the first time after childbirth was not possible to carry out natural feeding. In addition, the lining for feeding is an excellent tool for preventing and protecting the breast from dryness and cracks.
But even with such a huge number of advantages, you should not abuse this useful device: after all, there is always a downside to the coin. Breast pads can lead to stagnation of milk due to less active than in a natural case, lactation.
The child often does not suck out the milk in full, and as a result, with each time it is produced all in less and less. In addition, prolonged use of pads causes the addictive effect of the baby and prevents one hundred percent contact with the mother. If we talk about addiction, we can not say about the psychological fear of the mother. If you use patches for several weeks, it is very difficult to decide on feeding without them.
Breast pads must be selected correctly. There are two main types of them, depending on the material used for their manufacture. The most common models are latex or silicone. Preference should be given to the latter. In form, there are many options: oval, rounded types, as well as butterflies made in the manner. When buying a few people is guided by such a secondary characteristic, it is much more important to choose the right size. There are basically three main types: S, M, L. They are defined by the diameter of the nipples. The average is, of course, M, in this case the diameter of the nipple is equal to one centimeter, with the smallest version, the circumference is less than a centimeter, and at the maximum, respectively, more.
To breast patches served long enough, do not forget to look after them. Before the first use, thermal treatment by means of sterilization or boiling is always required. Repeat this procedure after each feeding is not required. The covers are easy to clean with soap and rinse thoroughly with running water, then dry and store in a dust-proof place.
