If your baby needs a supplement of expressed breastmilk or formula, a nursing supplementer can give him that extra milk while he is feeding at the breast. Supplementers can help mums have an at-breast relationship with their baby. A nursing supplementer lets a baby get any supplement he needs at the breast without using bottles.
If you are having a mastectomy for breast cancer treatment of prophylaxis, you will most likely have surgical drains in place when you go home. Surgical drains are also usually placed during breast reconstruction surgery. Your surgeon or nurse will give you instructions on how to manage your drains, but knowing what to expect can make living with drains a bit easier.
The condition is also called tuberous breasts or breast hypoplasia. Tubular breasts can also present problems for women who wish to breastfeed. Tubular breasts are diagnosed based on the way that the breasts look.
A lactation aid is a method that allows the baby to be supplemented with expressed breastmilk, formula, glucose water with added colostrum, or plain glucose water without using a bottle or any other alternative feeding method. The lactation aid is better than using a syringe, cup feeding, finger feeding or any other method, since the baby is on the breast and breastfeeding. A note about bottles:The use of bottles with a baby of any age may result in the baby becoming fussy at the breast or even refusing the breast.
