Answer: Plastic shells are available in the market which you can wear over your areola & nipples. Breast pumps & other suction devices are available as well. As you said that you're having bm then you can 'Hand express' too. For this you just have to cup your breast with one hand & with the help of thumb & forefinger sqeeze your nipple where areola starts. Small drops of milk will come. Dont over do it. Pull back your breast to make your baby latch to it easily. You can V- hold too,for this you have hold your nipple with your fore finger & middle finger in a scissor shape,press down gently. Stimulating the nipple with cold water by touching it with your fingers. These are the various options you can go for. & most importantly if you have bm then feed your little one that only. I 've no intention to offend the moms who have no options left than to give fm but as you said you already have started feeding her/him both so just check the carton,its written over there that mothers milk is the best. It ll build up immunity in your kid. My daughter is 8 months & 2 weeks old & i'm still continuing her with bm apart from feeding her solid foods puree/ stew,etc thrice a day. Its tiring but worth it as far as our kids are concerned. Takecare
Question: Hi, my nipples are very small so my baby is not able to suck properly. should i use nipple shield.
Answer: hi yes you can use nipple Shield also I am good tell you you can massage your breast before feeding the baby every time also you can take warm water shower and while let the warm water flow down the breast and massage the breast at that time also just before feeding your baby you can use electric Expressor for five mins which will help the nipple to get its shape which in turn will help the baby to latch properly
