Breastfeeding is the most natural way of feeding your child and keeping him healthy. However, it does have its challenges, especially when you’re still starting. It’s a good thing there are breastfeeding accessories that you can use to make this task easier for mommies like you.
Breastfeeding can be painful at first, when you’re still learning. Make sure to let your baby latch on properly by sucking the areola, not just your nipple, with the baby’s upper and bottom lips turned out. You can also relieve the pain with a nipple shield, although you should only use it temporarily and under the guidance of your lactation consultant. There are various sizes and brands of nipple shields, but you can try Medela’s as it allows your baby to still come in contact with your breast.
