For new moms, postpartum care is essential, and one of the things they care about most is breast health. In addition to maintaining the body in shape, postpartum breast care is also vital for moms who want to breastfeed their newborns. To prevent sagging and deformation of the breasts after giving birth, it is essential for new moms to pay more attention to breast care.
After delivery, due to the change in hormone levels in the body, moms will start to produce milk, which can cause breast swelling and breast blockage if not emptied in time. The most common situation is breast redness, swelling and pain. In serious cases, it can lead to breast swelling and mastitis. To avoid this, new moms can use professional breast pumps to empty their breasts. While keeping the milk flowing smoothly, it also saves time and effort for moms to get more rest time.
Nursing moms should wear comfortable bras which can also provide enough support for breasts. Moms should look for bras that are soft, breathable and convenient for breastfeeding, preferably a special nursing bra. Wearing the right bra during breastfeeding can also prevent breasts from sagging.
When breastfeeding, moms can lie down or hold the baby. Remember to switch sides during breastfeeding. Don’t let the baby pull the nipple excessively to help prevent the occurrence of nipple disease.
