Breast milk adult chat
For example, hearing your baby cry, thinking about your baby, smelling your baby, or sitting in the chair where you usually breastfeed might be enough to trigger your reflex and cause leaking.Here's how it works: These stimuli prompt your body to release oxytocin.This hormone makes the milk-making lobes of your breasts contract and eject milk toward the nipple.If your baby isn't nursing at that moment, the milk may leak or even spray.In the first weeks of breastfeeding, your letdown reflex is being conditioned to respond to the sensation of your baby nursing.Until your reflex adjusts to that stimulation, certain sensations and even thoughts may trigger letdown.When you drink alcohol, it passes into your breast milk.There is no known safe level of alcohol consumption while breastfeeding.
You should avoid alcohol in the first month after your baby is born until breastfeeding is well established.Phone: 1800 874 878 Email: [email protected]: Mental Health Commission (external site) Live chat: Visit Alcohol.
