My daughter is two months old. She feeds only for five minutes at a time. I am worried if she is getting proper feed, and if not, what should I do? My milk let down is too fast. So, every time she feeds, and gets choked. Please suggest how I can help her.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Please note the following points:
1) Monitor the child's weight to see if he or she is getting proper feeds and gaining adequate weight.
2) You can feed the baby with a bottle or with a sipper to monitor how much feeds the child is taking, and this will also regulate the flow of milk. However, use a sterilizer to clean these so that there is no chance of infection.
3) Visit a lactation consultant to find out what problems you are facing while feeding and how they can be rectified.
4)Burp the baby for at least 15 to 20 minutes post feed.
