Problems in Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is the feeding of an infant or young child with milk from a woman’s breasts. Breastfeeding can be enjoyable for both you and your baby.
Breast milk is easy to digest and contains antibodies that can protect infants from bacterial and viral infections. Breast engorgement is caused by congestion of the blood vessels in the breast. The breasts are swollen, hard, and painful. Breast milk has the right amount and quality of nutrients to suit your baby’s first food needs. Breastfeeding (nursing) your baby can be a comfortable and relaxing experience, though nipple soreness should be expected, especially during the first weeks of breastfeeding. Breast fullness is the gradual accumulation of blood and milk in the breast a few days after birth and is a sign that your milk is coming in.

Breast fullness doesn’t impair efficient breastfeeding because the breast tissues can be easily compressed by the baby’s mouth. Breast infections most commonly occur in mothers who are stressed, exhausted, have cracked nipples, plugged milk ducts, breast engorgement, who have skipped feedings.
