Answer: Hello I can understand your concern dear, but it really painful to extract milk and give to them. Apply coconut oil to your nipples and try to pull them forward. Before offering milk to your baby wash the oil off. You have to make baby latch onto your nipple, if they suck milk, then only milk will be produced more. Foods which increase BM are green veggies, garlic, ghee, fruits, dry fruits, milk, you can take milk with shatavari powder for increase in your BM. BM is very important for babies as it protects them from various diseases and allergies. Take help from your mother or aunt. Nowdays even obstetrician doctors and nurses helping a lot with regard to breastfeeding issue. Consult your doctor, they will help for sure. In my case in the hospital there was a doctor who made sure that baby sucks the nipple when they are just 3 hours old. Baby sucking breast will stimulate brain for production of more milk.

    Thanks I will try coconut oil

Answer: Don't worry dr... As still baby is 9 days old it takes some time. Solution for your short nipple, if you are tired of using home remedies to pull up your nipple as you are the new mother it might be bit painful. And extracting milk from hand too. Better to use manual breast pump as its safe for you and your baby too than electric breast pump till your baby gets proper latching. After pumping from breast pump for 15 min make your baby to suck your nipple with help of your fingers at least for 2 min... As you will be pumping it helps to pull up your nipple easily without pain.. This is how I overcame from same kind of problem as you are facing. Hope it helps

Question: my baby is 45 days old ...but he is not drinking my milk directly from breast..i need to take out milk for him...so plz suggest how to make him drink my milk directly...as i have small nipples
Answer: Baby bottle and nipple k beech me confuse ho rha. Babies are born with suckling skill, but if it's intervened with any other method then they get confused. Nipple size has nothing to do with sucking. its the aerola (black part behind the nipple)wch matters. Help your baby latch on aerola. Bring his head closer to breast slightly elevated and place your nipple in his mouth till his lips reaches aerola. It will take time but with patience you and your baby both can succeed. You can also try nipple shield.
