For the first few days after your baby’s birth, your body will produce colostrum, a nutrient-rich “pre-milk” or “practice milk.” Colostrum contains many protective properties, including antibacterial and immune-system-boosting substances that aren’t available in infant formula.
For some women, colostrum is thick and yellowish. For others, it is thin and watery. The flow of colostrum is slow so that a baby can learn to nurse — a process that involves coordination to suck, breathe, and swallow.
After about 3 to 4 days of producing colostrum, your breasts will start to feel firmer. This is a sign that your milk supply is increasing and changing from colostrum to breast milk, which resembles skim (cow’s) milk.
Sometimes a mother’s milk may take longer than a few days to come in. This is perfectly normal and is usually no cause for concern, but make sure to let your doctor know. While babies don’t need much more than colostrum for the first few days, the doctor may need to make sure the baby is getting enough to eat. It can help to breastfeed often to stimulate milk production.
When should I begin breastfeeding?
If possible, try to start nursing within an hour of your baby’s birth. This timing takes advantage of the natural wakefulness of a newborn immediately after birth. After the initial period of being alert, a newborn will spend much of the next 24 hours sleeping. So it may be more difficult to get your baby to latch on after those first few hours.
A newborn baby placed on the mother’s chest after birth will naturally “root” (squirm toward the breast, turn the head toward it, and make sucking motions with the mouth). To breastfeed, the baby will latch onto the breast by forming a tight seal with the mouth around the nipple and areola. Even if your baby doesn’t actually latch on at this time and just “practices,” it’s still good for your baby (and you!) to get used to the idea of breastfeeding.
In the first few days of life, your baby will want to feed on demand, usually about every 1-3 hours day and night. As babies get older and their bellies grow to accommodate more milk, they will go longer between feedings.
