Nowadays, all the propaganda is emphasizing confidence in breastfeeding. True, that’s right. The benefits of sticking to breastfeeding are huge!
However, Lema believes that this confidence is a prerequisite for parents to have a certain knowledge base of nurturing. Because if there is no foundation, when a child has a cry, an inconvenience can completely destroy this confidence.
Here are nine feeding mistakes that are very common in life. Moms must be careful.
1, the old fear that the baby will not eat enough.
Situation 1: Some mothers always feel that they have little milk, and worry that their babies are not strong enough to eat. They just want to break their breast milk and feed their babies with milk or other milk substitutes.
Truth 1: Actually, whether a baby is full or not can not be judged by his mother’s subjective conjecture, nor can he think he is hungry when he cries. Crying is just the way babies express discomfort, is the instinctive emotional response, when the baby feels uncomfortable, hungry, thirsty, wet diapers, too cold and hot, pain, sickness and so on will cry.
Secondly, judging whether the milk is sufficient can be from the baby’s urine and urine, feeding reactions, changes in the mother’s breasts, baby weight changes and other aspects of comprehensive evaluation. Furthermore, the best food for babies less than 6 months is breast milk, so long as you can feed 1/2 to 1/3 of the baby do not stop. When mom has a good rest, the amount of breast milk can be increased gradually.
2. Frequent replacement of formula powder.
Situation 2: There are many kinds of milk powder on the market now. Some mothers change their brands frequently in order to let their babies absorb nutrition completely.

Therefore, it is recommended that one should not be changed after the baby is selected. If you really want to change, you need to carefully observe the adaptation of children. If there is still an uncomfortable reaction after half a month, stop using this brand of milk powder.
3. Improper feeding method.
