Breast milk is considered a storehouse of nutrients for the baby. Mother’s milk helps in the development of the physical and mental health of the baby. For this reason, experts have been advising mothers to breastfeed their babies for up to 6 months.
Otherwise, in the absence of proper breastfeeding, the baby may lack immunity to fight against the disease and it is likely to cause various other physical problems. In addition to this, not only in infants but also in mothers due to lack of proper breastfeeding, there is a high risk of mental problems like postpartum depression due to hormonal imbalance as well as ovarian and breast cancer. Therefore, it is important for any mother to breastfeed her baby properly, not only for the baby but also for herself.
Similarly, the common problem most mothers have after delivery is breastfeeding their babies. Most newborns prefer to breastfeed only one part and not the both sides. Most babies refuse to breastfeed both and prefer to breastfeed only one side. This habit of the baby creates a kind of stress in the mother, at the same time it adversely affects both the mother and the baby.
However, this habit of the baby is considered normal, and since such a habit can be eliminated, there is no need to worry about it. Therefore, first of all, it is very important for us to know the reason why both the babies are not allowed to breastfeed.
There are various reasons why babies prefer to breastfeed only one part and not the other. Generally, infants refuse to breastfeed for the following reasons:
– Changed taste of milk due to mastitis
– Nipple size and uncomfortable position
-Because less milk comes
– If there is any problem in the breast or any other physical problem that the mother is going through
-And, some mothers feel comfortable with their baby on their right or left side only.
Here are the reasons why babies prefer to breastfeed only partially. Also, why should we breastfeed now? And if not, what are the problems for the mother? Special attention should be paid to that.
Only one breastfeeding can cause the baby to lack enough milk. As babies go hungry and most of them cry, lack of adequate milk can lead to lack of immunity. In addition, the problems seen in both breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding mothers are as follows:
– Drying breasts without breastfeeding
– Uneven breast size
– Excessive pain due to counting of milk
– Damage to the nipple
– Unnecessary automatic milk flow.
Therefore, keeping these things in mind, we should try to reduce the cause by finding out why mothers are not trying to breastfeed their babies even to avoid such problems. Otherwise, for this, advice and suggestions can be taken from the concerned experts and experienced people.
