Less Breastfeeding Stress for Moms |

Sleeping when a baby is sleeping, trying naps and getting breaks, getting support of the baby’s father or relatives and buying plastic cups and plates so as not to be stressed are some of the recommendations of Carey Acosta, Lactation Consultant with Homestead Hospital for moms. “Don’t be afraid to ask for help,” she says.

Nancy Martinez, Mother Baby Clinical Educator with Homestead Hospital adds there are many positions for breastfeeding. She considers the “C-section” is one of the best.


There is a sense of sometimes one feels the anxiety and it’s sometimes it’s all on you and we as moms we take on the overwhelming responsibility all right everything you know do you get moms to tell you I’m exhausted I don’t know if I can breastfeed anymore what’s your advice? My advice to you as a mom if you do find that you’re struggling truly sleep when that baby sleeping try and nap try and take breaks get support the father of the the baby parents grandparents anybody don’t be afraid to ask for help buy plastic cups paper plates don’t stress the small stuff I think really that’s the most important thing. That’s right and they say that skin-to-skin contact is very important for a newborn and of course the mom in fact doctors say you should start breastfeeding as soon as they come out of the womb even if it’s after a c-section birth because you’re going through that pain of the c-section and now the latching on you had a c-section and it’s hard it’s I mean there’s no way around it. We what can do is we can think about different positions and that’s what’s comes and important is that there are different positions that you can do when you’re breastfeeding and you’ll learn those you can do if you read any of the prenatal books and educate yourself about the different types of hold if you end up having to c-section that can be painful you can actually do a football hold so you’re offsetting the baby and it so it’s different hold most hospitals these days all have lactation consultants that they can come and see and consult with you and teach you the different types of hold.
