Breastfeeding

What are the stages in breastfeeding progression?. The stages listed below, which describe a baby's progression to direct breastfeeding, are meant only as a guideline. Progress varies among high-risk babies. A baby might move quickly from one stage to another, or skip a stage altogether. :) :D :? :idea:

A baby is likely to begin rooting or nuzzling at the breast, and may actually latch-on, when held skin-to-skin. Mothers, how true is this statement. Let me know, i will be happy to hear from you.:oops: :?: :ugeek:

During the time of empty breast feeding, mothers may want to pump before skin-to-skin holding sessions once rooting and nuzzling are noted. Then, the baby can latch-on and practice without being overwhelmed by the milk "let-down" and lots of milk at once. Being overwhelmed can affect a baby's physical state, and your mental state. :D :?

A baby will advance at the breast from latching-on, to sucking in bursts, to occasionally coordinating suck-swallow-breathe. As your baby shows more ability, you will want to see what he/she can do with more milk in the breast. 8-) :) :lol:

Mothers of baby are to pump until the let-down flow slows and then offer the breast. This prevents large amounts of milk that often come with let-down from overwhelming the baby, yet leaves plenty of milk in the breast for a feeding. 8-) :) :D :?

Expressing some milk onto your nipple or the baby's mouth may encourage licking, latch-on, and sucking and the football hold (clutch hold) is often the easiest to use when breastfeeding a premature baby. :cry: :? :D :idea:

During the early stages of learning to breastfeed, your high-risk baby may not take much, if any, milk during breastfeeding. The baby is only practicing the motions. Neither you nor your baby should ever feel any pressure to perform. :mrgreen: :roll: :x :(

If your baby is gavage-fed (tube-fed), it may be possible to practice breastfeeding as the baby receives food through the tube. :D :) :? 8-)

Some feedings will last longer than others, and your baby may need time to get going at the breast for some feeds. :shock: :oops:

A feeding-tube system may be taped to the breast in such a way that a baby receives additional milk through the tube when the baby sucks. :) ;) :( :o :shock:
