Breast sensitivity linear rise, a stimulation on the hard, a word does not agree with the swelling pain? Sometimes when you take a bath, you will find some pale yellow “little pearls” on your nipples, and sometimes wet and sticky on your underwear?

Don’t worry, the chest becomes bigger, the nipple is sensitive, the areola turns black, these are the result of the hormone change during pregnancy.

The wonderful thing about colostrum is that it is the most suitable ration for your baby. Especially when the baby is just born, your colostrum can adapt to the digestion and absorption of the newborn baby, meet his nutritional needs, promote the development of the baby’s intestinal tract, improve the baby’s immunity, and reduce the occurrence of jaundice – in short, it can not only make him eat full, but also make his immune timely online, so that the baby less Sick, is absolutely you give the baby the most abundant “big meal”.

Colostrum contains a large number of antibodies and proteins, which can protect newborns from the invasion of bacteria and reduce diseases.

It can inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, care for the baby’s small belly, but also conducive to respiratory health, help baby to establish their own defense system.

Since colostrum is so precious, should we squeeze it out during pregnancy? How to scientifically deal with those small changes in the breast?

Although some colostrum will be secreted during pregnancy, it will not produce a lot of milk at this time, so it will not squeeze out much, because a lot of milk secretion depends on the baby’s lactation hormone surge to achieve. The colostrum secreted during pregnancy is usually light yellow, the amount can be more or less, pay attention to clean it, if the colostrum forms scab on the nipple, you can use ointment to daub, and then gently wipe with warm water after softening. It is not recommended to touch the nipple frequently during pregnancy, because it may cause unnecessary uterine contraction and bring risks to the fetus and baby!

In addition, in order to increase the size of the breast, you need to choose a new bra, choose the appropriate cup of pregnant women’s bra. Breast pain, you can be under the guidance of the doctor through massage or hot compress to relieve, remember to be gentle Oh!

Warm reminder

Half an hour after delivery is the golden period for opening milk.
