A dummy during breastfeeding?

08/06/20 13:44

Hello, I now have a 3-week-old daughter, born at term, gaining weight well, breastfeeding fully. However, for the last few days, she wants to be on the breast nonstop. As soon as I put her aside, she sleeps for a while, but then she wakes up and nothing calms her except breastfeeding, so I sometimes even breastfeed every hour, day and night. I’m starting to get very tired. I’d like to ask if I can give her a dummy? Will it affect breastfeeding?

Hello, opinions on this vary, especially from lactation consultants, who strictly reject dummies whilst breastfeeding, but in my own experience, if you have the right breastfeeding technique, your daughter’s doing well and she holds onto the breast well, it is not a problem to give your daughter a dummy if she wants. It may be that some children do not want a dummy, then it is necessary to try repeatedly and, if necessary, to replace it with a dummy from other brands. Giving a dummy usually doesn’t mean that your daughter will start to refuse to breastfeed.

Hello, I have a 10-month-old daughter and I found out that she no longer has almost any fontanelle on her head, is that normal? She looks fine, she is cheerful, she climbs on all fours, she’s starting to sit, she tries to rise, she burbles, her head circumference is 45 cm. But a friend’s daughter of the same age has a much larger fontanelle? Show more

Nephrological examination

Hello, I would like to ask you for advice on what to prepare for. I'm going with my 6-month-old boy for a nephrology examination and no one has really told me what to expect. He has a narrow foreskin (obstructing his urination) and during the examination we had it was written once that the L-pelvis is divided into two distinct dendrites. Please explain, I'm quite upset about this. Thank you for your answer Show more
