    Mothers milk - how to overcome any problems in the early days - general information

    Moderators note: this sticky thread is for information. Please do post extra information on the same subject, or your own experiences and questions relating to the topic. However, conversation and/or arguing will be deleted inshaAllah.

    This sticky thread is for essential information for new mothers (and fathers) about breastfeeding. Unfortunately many midwives and health visitors are NOT trained in breastfeeding and are not even that knowledgable about it. Therefore some mothers are failing to breastfeed because of bad advice from the midwives and health visitors.

    Some of the information in this thread may not be considered suitable for brothers other than new fathers and fathers to be. However the success or failure of a woman breastfeeding can rest on her knowing about breastfeeding and knowing what is good or bad advice. As its hard sometimes for a mother to get good advice, it is necessary that they have as much good information as possible - and their husbands also need access to this information! Not all the women who may need this information have access to the sisters area.

    Brothers: if you don't feel comfortable with the contents on this thread, then don't read it please.

    -------------------

    Why buy your baby any other milk when Allah puts milk for him/her in your breasts for free?

    From reading books about babies you would think that breastfeeding just happens right from the start......... thats misleading, it can be hard to breastfeed for the first ten days or so, the baby has to learn to latch on and you have to learn how to latch him/her on, how best to hold him/her, how to keep him/her there, how to burp him/her, and there are lots of difficulties you might face like sore nipples (they can get very sore the first few days), feeding the baby constantly until your milk comes in (the first few days you only have colostrum, which contains vital nutrients and antibodies for your baby but it is ultra concentrated and there isn't much of it so your baby is hungry until the regular milk comes in.

    no matter what difficulties you face....... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE persevere with it it is SOOOOOO worth it, mostly cause its so healthy for your baby but also because after you get past the difficulties it becomes very easy and not at all painful and its soooooo convienient. and it is so lovely to be able to nourish your baby yourself with milk that Allah put there.

    I have heard of many mothers who have given up in the first few days because they were not prepared for having any difficulty and they think they are unable to breastfeed, when all they needed to do was persevere through the first few days.

    The only medical reason not to breastfeed is if you have HIV cause the baby can catch it through breast milk. Very very rarely you get women who can't produce enough milk but even they can do mixed feeding. Women on certain medication can't breastfeed, but unless its essential that you take the medication, you can discuss with your doctor whether you can come off it ot have an alternative whilst you breastfeed.

    And if you have really sore nipples you can use nipple shields until they stop being sore. If you use nipple shields on both sides for a while there is a danger the baby will refuse to feed without them so they should be used sparingly, but they really can help get you through a difficult few feeds whilst they heal up. (they heal up quickly btw especially if you also use a nipple cream such as lansinoh, which protects them whilst the baby is feeding without harming the baby.)

    Nice Post...I have read your post.. I got great info about Mother breastfeeds...I just read an article on the net someplace and they say the 10% weight loss should be from the weight he had wen leaving hospital, and not his birthweight because he's already lost a bit in the 48 hours he spent in hospital? Thanks for sharing this article..

    Muslim parent's manual - available on Kindle Store £/$0.99

    Salaam sisters,

    I am a General Practitioner based in the UK and I wanted to make you all aware of my new ebook "The Muslim Parent's Manual" available on The Amazon Kindle Store for £/$0.99 only, intended for new parents especially those expecting a new baby.

    There is a section of the book focusing on breastfeeding and formula milks and the available options to feed your baby, together with the benefits and downsides to each. I am very much pro-breastfeeding, as Allah(swt) recommends it in the Holy Qur'an until the age of two, where possible.

    I hope some of you may find the book helpful and it is a free download if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription.

    Brother Zahid

    Re: need advice on baby weightloss

    The advise given in this thread is of course for those women who are able to feed their babies as they get a lot of milk produced bizinillah.

    however, there are many women, and some i have seen closely, are unable to feed their little ones because they do not produce enough milk in their breasts or the milk is rejected by the baby. In such case, other milk has to be provided to the baby to avoid lack of nutrition. And this is something that is out of the hand of the woman who does it.

    Of course there are those who just don't want to feed, well they are accountable on the day of judgement as breast milk is the right of every new born.

    GOOD LUCK.دانلود از یوتیوب .And if you have really sore nipples you can use nipple shields until they stop being sore. If you use nipple shields on both sides for a while there is a danger the baby will refuse to feed without them so they should be used sparingly, but they really can help get you through a difficult few feeds whilst they heal up
