Breastfeeding: what's true?

  1. If you have just given birth, as a brand new mother you often receive quite a few tips and well-intentioned advice. This also applies to breastfeeding. One person advises you to drink fennel tea with colic and yet another knows exactly how to tell you that you should never eat chocolate when you are breastfeeding. But what is really true?

Breastfeeding women should drink fennel tea

  1. In the past, it was often recommended to drink fennel and anise tea. Fennel tea is said to reduce colic and anise tea to promote milk production. Nowadays the advice for pregnant women is not to drink fennel and / or anise tea. The tea contains substances that could be harmful to babies.

Chocolate causes intestinal cramps in your baby

  1. A newborn baby will always have cramps, simply because the intestines are not yet ripe. Some babies will suffer more than others. Many mothers can therefore eat everything without their baby being bothered by it. Did you eat chocolate and does your baby have more cramps? Then it may well be that your baby tolerates it less. This can occur with several products such as cabbage, onions or oranges.

Breastfeeding gives you saggy breasts

  1. Many women probably immediately shout: WHERE! But whether you are breastfeeding or not, after pregnancy and childbirth breasts usually become a bit weaker. During pregnancy, glandular tissue grows in the breasts. This will make them look bigger. After breastfeeding, this returns to a resting phase and the fat tissue increases. Some women get their 'old' breasts back, for others they stay a bit smaller or bigger.

Breastfeeding hurts

  1. If you feed your baby properly, breastfeeding will not hurt. In the beginning it can hurt a bit, but soon you will no longer be bothered by this. Incorrect latch on can cause breast infections or cracked nipples. Make sure you are well prepared if you plan to breastfeed and ask your maternity nurse to help you during the maternity week. Are you still in trouble? Then consult a lactation expert.

'Breastfed babies cry more'

  1. Yes, say British experts from the Medical Research Council in the United Kingdom. According to the scientists, moodiness is completely normal in babies and is their only way to communicate. Often times the crying is misunderstood and they are not hungry but tired.

Breastfeeding makes boys smarter

  1. Scientists at the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research in Subiaco studied the study figures of a thousand 10-year-olds in western Australia. From this they concluded that boys who were breastfed for at least six months had higher grades at the age of 10 than their peers who were bottle-fed.
