Breastfeeding babies, as natural, natural process, is still questioned by some doctors, so not all mothers in this matter are all at once all right. Some manage to avoid medication and feed, others are forced to mix, the third is to be fed. Nuances dozens, adequate information is not so much, and most importantly, to get it, you need to compare the opinions of different experts and draw the right conclusions. In general, the life of a young mother is not easy either, so she needs to read books and articles instead of sleeping.
This material is devoted to a very common topic among the recommendations of breastfeeding counselors. There is such a thing as the method of "nesting," and offering this magical way of restoring the natural connection with a partial failure of the baby from the chest or with other difficulties.
The method suggested by Dr. Bergman was to stay with the child permanently and completely isolated from others (originally offered to parents of premature babies). Now the recommendations have been adapted for children of different ages, and now the main message of the methodology is the briefly the joint of the mother and the child. By sleep, by the way, we mean both daytime rest and night sleep.
Actually, the range of tasks of the mother in this situation is not great, but close ones and the spouse will have to be completely ignored. Certainly, different, confusing feelings and apprehensions will distract the young mother from the mission, so that the additional task of the relatives will be all her support. The steadiness of intentions and the correct fulfillment of all conditions will be the key to the rapid recovery of feedings and the normalization of the child's schedule.
Let us dwell on the important points of the "nest" method. The name already says a lot, but more specifically it means that:
1) Joint sleep becomes mandatory. The dream of the baby in the sling.
2) The pope and other relatives should take a minimum of participation in the care of the baby (for the recovery period).
3) Walking in public places and inviting guests is not recommended.
4) All manipulations for care and bathing should be carried out by mom personally.

6) Fodder from the bottle is strictly prohibited.
7) Moms of grown-up children can play with kids in tactile games, read books together, embracing watching cartoons.
Of course, all the moments that have not been voiced should be based on the observance of the above recommendations and the chances of restoring the feeding, bringing the baby to the breast and helping him.

There are no grounds for concern, and in support of this, lactating women sleeping with their children and husbands. Naturally, if the bed is not large and physically the parents have little space when sleeping with the baby, it's better for the father. By the way, joint sleep is recommended for children of the first year of life, regardless of the presence or absence of problems with feeding, in addition, it is the easiest way for a mother to often put the baby to the breast at night. Taking care of, comfortable, comfortable. To solve this issue, there are extra cots for children and an opportunity to put a bed near the wall.
