Question: I feel heart burn and pinching like a needle just below my breast. What to do?
Answer: Heartburn in pregnancy may occur because of changing hormone levels, which can affect the muscles of the digestive tract and how different foods are tolerated. Pregnancy hormones can cause the lower esophageal sphincter (the muscular valve between the stomach and esophagus) to relax, allowing stomach acids to splash back up into the esophagus
To reduce heartburn during pregnancy without hurting your baby, you should try the following:
Eat several small meals each day instead of three large ones.
Avoid fried, spicy, or rich (fatty) foods or any foods that seem to cause relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter and increase the risk of heartburn.
Drink less while eating. Drinking large amounts while eating may increase the risk of acid reflux and heartburn.
Don't lie down directly after eating.
Keep the head of your bed higher than the foot of your bed. Or place pillows under your shoulders to help prevent stomach acids from rising into your chest.
Ask your doctor about using over-the-counter medications such as Tums or Maalox, which are generally safe to use during pregnancy. You may find that liquid heartburn relievers are more effective in treating heartburn, because they coat the esophagus.
Wear loose-fitting clothing. Tight-fitting clothes can increase the pressure on your stomach and abdomen.
Question: hello, my baby boy is 20 days old.. and he is having swollen nipples just like small breast. some people are suggesting me to squeeze the milk out of them or he will have swollen nipples for the rest of life. i m really worried. it might be painful for my little one. what should i do. pls suggest.
Answer: hello dear.. They are almost always benign and due to exposure to maternal hormones in the womb. The same hormones that cause the mother's breasts to swell and milk glands to be stimulated can do the same to the baby's breasts. These lumps and enlarged breasts in the baby may be quite noticeable at birth. Over weeks, or sometimes even months, when there is no more exposure to the hormones, the breast tissue begins to shrink and eventually becomes quite flat. Occasionally a normal, small amount of tissue remains, but it doesn't grow or cause discomfort. Sometimes, overly worried parents touch and pinch the breasts so much that the area gets irritated. Leave them alone and let nature take its course in shrinking them.
so dont do that dear.. many people say many things dont try to implement everything
