  • Labour - Childbirth - Huggies
    of the best ways you can ensure your labour is successful is proper preparation You need to decide on several things in regard to your labour including whether you will have a home birth or a birth in a hospital Many hospitals give you a choice of going into a labour ward or a birthing centre Birthing centres are usually for natural births requiring no intervention and where the mother doesn t want an epidural Some have baths for water births If you do have a home birth you will need to arrange a midwife You may go into labour before or after your due date so it s a good idea to start preparing a few weeks before your due date You should get a hospital bag ready this bag should be prepped way ahead of time Some hospitals are a little pedantic about what you are and aren t allowed into the hospital so it might be a good idea to check beforehand You should also ensure you have a car seat fitted for your little one s journey home as well as nappies and baby clothes so your tot is comfortable and warm It is a great idea to do a labour test run where you get everything together and make a trip to the hospital Many women are unsure about when labour actually starts there are a couple of warning signs that signal the imminent onset of labour but these signs can differ between women Check out these signs and indicators in the signs of labour page so you are aware of what to look for You should also understand that there are some different indicators for a premature birth all these signs and symptoms are covered in Premature Birth Signs and treatment of pre term labour Labour can last a long time and if you are relaxed about it you should try to stay at home for as long as possible If your contractions are arriving with 5 minutes intervals or less if your water breaks or you are bleeding then it is a good time to make your way to the hospital You should also have a reliable birth partner available to help you through the labour process Here are the qualities and responsibilities that you should look for in a birth partner Stages of labour There are three distinct stages of labour all with their own unique qualities and characteristics Your first stage of labour is characterised by dilation of your cervix brought on by contractions Your contractions will change from a dull cramp feeling into rhythmically occurring pain that comes at regular intervals Due to this your cervix will become softer and more stretchy during its preparation for the baby You should try to relax as much as possible and settle into a position that is comfortable for you You should also go to the bathroom as often as possible to make sure your bladder is empty The second stage of labour

    because they are worried about what breastfeeding might do to their breasts Other women try to breastfeed and find it very difficult and so choose to use formula instead Unless you have serious health issues like HIV or Hepatitis you should try and breastfeed to nourish your baby As mentioned above breast milk contains natural disease fighters anti bodies to fortify your baby s fragile immune system Breast milk is very easy for bub to digest so there s less spit and vomit for you to clean up which is always a bonus What s more breasts are as you would know very portable and don t need to be prepared warmed washed well except for the odd shower or sterilised a fact you ll appreciate when your hungry baby bellows for his next meal during a party shopping trip or in the middle of the night Breastfeeding is also good for mums Breastfeeding causes the release of certain hormones that help a mother bond with her baby These hormones relax you and cause you to feel particularly motherly towards your baby There s also the physical closeness of breastfeeding which further aids the bonding process Some studies show that breastfeeding can help you lose a lot of the weight that you may have put on during pregnancy For reasons not completely understood breastfeeding may reduce the chances of developing breast and ovarian cancer Breastfeeding has also been found to reduce the incidence of osteoporosis in nursing mums How To Breastfeed Breastfeeding is supposed to be one of the most natural things a new mum can do but is it really New mums have been doing it for millions of years but that doesn t mean that it s always easy especially if this is your first shot at it Huggies guide to breastfeeding will help you get it right The first thing you need to do is position yourself correctly make sure you are sitting in a comfortable chair or sofa with your feet up Place a pillow behind your back and on your lap to support your baby It s important that you are relaxed and comfortable You baby should be lying sideways with their face positioned towards you and with their head level with your nipple Use your fingers to support your breast as you offer the nipple to your baby Make sure your fingers are out of the way so they don t interfere when your baby latches onto your nipple If your baby turns his head away from your nipple gently stroke his face on the side closest to you This will cause your baby to face towards your nipple To get your baby to open his mouth gently rock him towards and then away from your nipple When your baby s mouth is open wide gently move him towards your breast chin first You need to make sure that your baby s bottom lip and tongue make contact with your breast first Once he

    that it is better for themselves and their baby to change to bottle feeding This can be a difficult decision for some mothers to make especially if they had their heart set on breastfeeding their new baby Seek some guidance from your local Health Nurse If you are trying to establish breastfeeding it has been suggested that the early use of bottles and dummies can interfere with the establishment It can reduce both the infants sucking capacity and stimulation of the breasts This may result in delayed and poor establishment of lactation What you need to know Babies who aren t breast fed must only have formula milk ordinary cow s milk is not suitable It s important to keep all feeding equipment clean by sterilising between uses This is because formula fed babies don t get the same protection from infection as breast fed babies Bottle feeding with formula milk or with expressed breast milk gives mother s flexibility when they go back to work However you feed your baby you and your baby will love spending the time together Hold your baby close when you re bottle feeding and enjoy it A Guide to Bottle Feeding You may bottle feed from the start or find you make the change from breast feeding later on What you need If you plan to fully bottle feed you ll need Sterilising equipment At least six bottles and teats Mixing jug Bottle warmer optional For an occasional bottle only one or two bottles and teats will be fine You may not need to buy all the sterilising equipment Preparation Make up your baby s feeds according to the instructions on the pack The main points you need to remember are Ideally boil the water for 5 minutes and then allow to cool Always put the amount of boiled water in the mixing jug or bottle first before the powder Always add the correct amount of scoops making the feed either too weak or too concentrated can be potentially dangerous DO NOT pack the scoop too firmly with formula powder Level off the scoop with a knife Follow the manufacturer s instructions You can buy pre measured sachets of dried milk which ensure you have the proportions right Ready to feed formula is even easier though it does cost more Keep made up formula refrigerated and only store this way for 24 hours Do not add anything else to your baby s bottle such as cereal powder honey sugar etc Important Heating bottles of formula in a microwave oven is NOT recommended The heat can be uneven leading to scalding hot spots in the bottle When you bottle feed Hold your baby close and make sure the teat is always filled this reduces the amount of air swallowing Every so often you ll need to take the teat out of your baby s mouth as the sides stick together and prevent a good flow Wriggling crying and pushing the teat out with the
