Hi doctor,

Our baby is 1 month old. My wife is facing problem in breastfeeding as the baby is not taking the feed properly. This is our first baby and my wife is using a breast pump to take off her milk and giving it in a bottle. I want to know whether the use of a breast pump for a long time cause any problem to the mother. What are the other ways to make the baby have milk directly through breastfeeding? Also, will bottle feeding cause any constipation problem?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • First of all, tell your wife to at least try to breastfeed for 15 minutes. Yes, it is difficult to feed first baby, but with experience it will become easy.
  • Tell her to put the nipple completely in his mouth by making a V-shape in her hand.
  • No, breast pump will not cause much problem. She can eject milk in a glass and give him by a spoon.
  • You can also start giving him top feed like formula milk.
  • The only problem the breast pump can cause is infection. So, sterilize it every time before she uses.
