When you need to breastfeed, first untie your jacket, wrap your baby in, and then unzip your baby's hug to let him suck. In this way, not only will my baby and I not get cold because of the naked body, but it will be warmer because the mother and child stick together.
Keep warm during baby feeding in winter
Mother, keep warm
The mother's body temperature tends to drop during breastfeeding, which can easily cause a cold. Therefore, even in air-conditioned rooms, blankets should be used to wrap the exposed parts of the body. Ensure the health of the mother so that it will not affect the health of the baby.
For breastfeeding at night, instead of turning on the heater in the entire room, it is better to place an electric heater for small-scale heating next to the mother and baby. Wrap your baby in clothes or a blanket to avoid direct contact with the heat from the heater.
Baby should also pay attention to keep warm
In order to facilitate breastfeeding, the baby will wear light and light clothes. Be sure to pay attention to the warm indoor environment when breastfeeding, and do not let the baby catch a cold due to breastfeeding.
Before breastfeeding, mother can drink a glass of warm water
It is extremely cold in winter, especially at night. Drinking a glass of warm water before breastfeeding can expand blood vessels and speed up blood flow through the transfer of heat to keep warm from the inside of the body. This is also one of the fastest and most effective ways to keep warm, but mothers should pay attention to the short duration of drinking warm water to keep warm. Therefore, after drinking warm water, other effective warming measures should be implemented immediately. Keep warm from the outside of the body, so that it can be regarded as a real warmth work, and ensure that the baby and mother will not catch cold when breastfeeding.
Prepare a bottle warmer
For mothers who are not breastfeeding, prepare a heat preservation pot that can maintain the water temperature at around 60°C. When your child is hungry, you can mix it with water and give him a drink. Or buy another bottle warmer. The baby bottle warmer can keep the milk at a constant temperature. When the baby wants to eat, adults only need to take the milk out of the milk warmer, which is very convenient. Don't wait until the baby is hungry before making milk.
Note: When making milk powder for your child, pay attention to the water temperature and adjust the temperature. If it is too high, it is easy to scald the baby, and if it is too low, it will stimulate the baby's stomach and cause diarrhea.
Precautions for baby feeding at night in winter

Pick up immediately after each feeding and pat the baby on the back. It is best to let the baby burp and then gently lie down on the right side. This way, on the one hand, it reduces the possibility of milk overflow, and on the other hand, it will not cause milk overflow. Suffocation caused by inhalation of trachea.
