New mothers need to adapt to the feeling of sudden heavy breasts in the first 1-2 days after giving birth, and especially cherish the pale yellow colostrum. The baby's colostrum can increase the body's resistance. In addition, by sucking frequently and effectively in the first two days of the baby, on the one hand, it can fully suck the colostrum which is rich in immune substances, on the other hand, it can stimulate the production of milk as soon as possible, and it can also prevent the new mother's swelling due to breast milk .
New mothers should wear a protective and comfortable bra during the day and night. The bra should not be too tight, so as not to constrict the breast duct.
If the new mother feels breast swelling is uncomfortable, she can apply a warm towel to her breast for a few minutes or take a shower with warm water before breastfeeding. But be careful not to use soap to clean the breasts, because soap will dry out the skin. New mothers can also put pads in the bra, but the pads need to be changed frequently to reduce the pain caused by wet nipples.
