HealthPhone: Step 8 - Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding



EnglishEnglish

Every facility providing maternity services and care for newborn infants should:

Encourage breastfeeding on demand.

Mothers of normal babies (including caesareans) who are breastfeeding should have no restrictions placed on the frequency or length of their babies' breastfeeds. They should be advised to breastfeed their babies whenever they are hungry or as often as the baby wants and they should wake their babies for breastfeeding if the babies sleep too long or the mother's breasts are overfull.

Babies should feed according to their needs, not a schedule decided by the hospital or mother. Understanding her infant's feeding cues improved breastfeeding and the mother-child relationship.

According to the eighth step the mother is encourage to breastfeed whenever the baby wants to. This is called demand feeding. It helps in increased production and prevents undue engorgement of breasts.
