How to use a nipple shield for breastfeeding

How to use a nipple shield for breastfeeding

A nipple shield is a flexible silicone nipple that is worn over the mom’s nipple while she nurses. When should a nipple shield be used?
– Nursing with inverted or flat nipples:
Nipple shields are helpful for people with shorter, flatter, or inverted nipples, making the latch difficult for the baby. Feeding through the shield helps draw the nipple out, to make it easier for your baby to latch onto the breast.
– Breastfeeding a premature baby:
Nipple shields are also useful for some smaller or premature babies who haven’t fully developed their ability to suck and have difficulty latching on to the breast. A nipple shield can help a preemie create suction and position the nipple in a way they may not yet be strong enough to do themselves.

How do you know if you need a perinatal mental health therapist?

How do you know if you need a perinatal mental health therapist?

The most common complication of pregnancy and childbirth is perinatal (loosely defined as the time from pregnancy to postpartum) depression and anxiety. During this time, new parents face many changes, physically and emotionally. Becoming a parent can be a pretty stressful time – everything’s new and it can take a while to find your feet. Add into the mix difficulties with feeding, sleeping, or settling your baby and things can start to feel a bit overwhelming. If your anxious feelings are getting in the way of daily life, it is time to seek help.
