1. If the sucking machine doesn't suck out, there is no milk

The mother's breast is like a warehouse, through which milk is transported to the breast sinuses and then squeezed or sucked out. When Ms. Zhao uses the breast suction device, she only sucks the milk out of the milk sinus. Often, the breast tube is not smooth, and gradually forms a milk block.

Baby's sucking is the best way to stimulate the nipple and increase the amount of milk. The sucking force of the new baby is weak. Don't worry. Slowly push the baby from the root of milk with your hands to facilitate the discharge of milk. If you have to use a sucking device, you should also use this way to assist. Otherwise, there are only two situations after a long time, either there is no milk gradually, or there are more and more pieces of milk, and the breasts are more and more To the more up, but the milk can not come out, the last nipple rupture infection, resulting in mastitis.

2. It doesn't matter if you don't feed your baby with night milk

Prolactin, also known as prolactin, is a hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. In the late pregnancy and lactation period, prolactin is secreted vigorously to promote breast development and lactation. The secretion of prolactin changes a lot in a day. Generally, the amount of prolactin secreted in sleep will be maintained at a high level. At 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning, the concentration of prolactin secreted in serum is about twice that at noon.

3. If you have too much milk, you need to use a suction device to empty it

The right way is to discharge part of the milk when the breast is swollen. The best way is to squeeze it by hand. If you can't operate it, you can use a sucking device. You can slowly lengthen the interval of discharge, and at the same time, you can slowly reduce the amount of milk discharged each time. After a period of adjustment, you will slowly achieve the "balance of supply and demand".
