Breast milk is an irreplaceable natural food for babies. From the day of pregnancy, the pregnant mother’s breasts gradually grow larger, and she is ready for one-day childbirth and nurturing. Normally, every pregnant mother will have milk after childbirth, but the process of childbirth will deplete part of the body’s nutrition reserves. In order to enrich the nutrition of postpartum milk, strengthening the nutrition reserves during pregnancy is particularly critical.

Two major nursing measures to prepare for postpartum lactation

1. Wearing is very important for underwear

If breasts are not well protected, how can we breast-feed more? Some beauty-loving mothers-to-be wear body-shaping tights in the early stages of pregnancy in the hope of keeping a slim figure. In fact, after pregnancy, the mother’s breast began to grow, breasts become more plump, if still tightly dressed may cause pressure on the breast, not conducive to breast growth. So for pregnant mothers, pure cotton, no steel ring, adjustable multi-row buttons and wide shoulder straps are the key points of underwear selection during pregnancy.

2. Pay attention to breast cleaning

When cleaning breasts, do not use soap when cleaning, because there is a protective layer of grease on the nipple, if soap washes this layer of grease, the nipple will be chapped because of drying during lactation.
