Over 77% of all Mothers with newborns in the world currently breastfeed their babies, and that percentage is increasing – and for a sound mind; according to the analysts, there is a considerable amount of evidence that breastfeeding improves immune function in infants.
Surgeon General’s 2020 reports show: Breastfed infants, as compared with babies who drink formula, are more prone to ear infections and diarrhea in the earlier six months and meet a higher lifetime risk of asthma, obesity, or Type-2 diabetes and even other health disorders.
However, Breastfeeding usually presents some difficulties for new Mothers, such as nipple pain, cracking, and engorgement like swelling and discomfort with soreness of the nipples, mastitis, and inadequate and redundant milk supply. These difficulties can be amazingly frustrating and even result in new Mothers interrupting Breastfeeding completely.
Traditional Homeopath believes it is essential to introduce Homeopathy to Breastfeeding Mothers. Homeopathy can be amazingly beneficial in addressing these hurdles and assist in making the Breastfeeding experience more enjoyable for all Mothers.
Moreover, Homeopathic remedies are thoroughly safe for both Breastfeeding Mothers and Infants, without a risk of adverse and harmful effects.
So, when choosing a Homeopathic remedy, you should examine the breasts to see if there is any discolouration or visible swelling or anything strange about the nipples. The feel and appearance of the milk produced should also be tested. Lastly, observe whether the infant has any difficulties with feeding.
