Breastfeeding is extremely important for the growth and development of an infant. Breast milk has the perfect mix of protein, fats and vitamins. Breastfeeding provides your baby with antibodies which helps your child combat bacteria and viruses. Studies show that infants who breastfeed have lower risks of developing allergies and asthma. Some women often suffer from breastfeeding issues like problems in releasing milk from the breasts, acute pain when releasing milk and little or sometimes no milk production from the breasts. Problems of breastfeeding not only affect the mother but can also restrict the infant from getting proper nutrients and vitamins. This hampers the development of the baby.
Complications such as plugged ducts, soreness, breast infections and pain during lactation can arise during breastfeeding. Soreness is extremely common and is almost always uncomfortable for many lactating mothers. It can be cured by consuming medicines and applying lotions prescribed by a certified gynecologist. Some women also experience plugged ducts, a condition when the milk doesn't drain out completely due to inflammation. Trauma or wearing tight fitting bras can cause plugged ducts by constricting the milk ducts. Mastitis (an infection where the breasts become red, tender and swollen) is also a complication associated with breastfeeding. A gynecologist or obstetrics is to be consulted if you are experiencing problems in breastfeeding.
