How do you recommend a sagging breast girl sleep during nights with or without bra?

How do you recommend a sagging breast girl sleep during nights with or without bra?

The bra is primarily: For comfort - not sagging. Some women (especially w larger breasts or who are pregnant) sleep in bra for comfort. It's recommended that a bra worn for sleep have soft cup w/o underwire or metal clasps. A shelf or cross-over design is recommended. Bras worn for sleep are made from soft materials. Use of improper cup depth can lead to rashes or chafing (due to breast contact against chest wall). ...Read more

Why does my 5 month old wake up every hour at night while she used to sleep close to 4 hrs then wake up to feed.. She is breast fed..

Why does my 5 month old wake up every hour at night while she used to sleep close to 4 hrs then wake up to feed.. She is breast fed..

Lots of reason: If baby is used to falling asleep with the breast or any feeding for that matter, then he/she is looking for it when awaken. Usually babies will have a few awake/drowsy states if they hear or see anything, they become more alert. IF you feed to sleep or rock to sleep then baby is looking for that. Try to change your routine to feeding, changing then bedtime. Put baby down to sleep while drowsy ...Read more

My 1 month baby nurses then, sleep on my breast. then when I put her in bed she wakes up crying nurse again and so on till midnight. Is this normal?

My 1 month baby nurses then, sleep on my breast. then when I put her in bed she wakes up crying nurse again and so on till midnight. Is this normal?

Infants consolidate : sleep from 1-4 mos. of age. At a consistent bedtime, nurse your baby, wipe out her mouth with a soft cloth, read to her & cuddle, then put her on her back in her crib in her own room when she's drowsy, but awake, to learn to self-calm to sleep. You'll be less likely to try to feed her when she cries out in light sleep. This prevents " bad" bedtime habits & lowers her risk for cavities at 5-6 mos. ...Read more

Soft tissue strain: In the absence of a mass or skin changes, the pains you felt were probably a strain of the muscle or connective tissue that supports the breast. Keep paying attention and do a self breast exam to be sure there is nothing palpable. ...Read more

My baby is 5 days old. He prefer to drink from my right breast than left. He also drink only 10 minutes and then sleep for 4-5 hours. Is it normal?

It happens: Some babies prefer one side to the other.It can be the comfort they feel while you hold them in that position.Sometimes altering your hold and always starting on the less preferred side will improve the situation.The breast yields 85% within 5 & almost all within 10min. If the breast is producing enough to grow baby will sleep well after a feed. ...Read more

I have a strange rash inbetween my breasts. I change my bra everyday and am very hygienic, though I sleep with my bra on. How can I get rid of my embarrassing rash? Should I not sleep with my bra?

I have a strange rash inbetween my breasts. I change my bra everyday and am very hygienic, though I sleep with my bra on. How can I get rid of my embarrassing rash? Should I not sleep with my bra?

Rash: I suspect you have a yeast infection on your skin. Your skin doesn't get a chance to dry out cause you wear your bra to bed. I would stop doing that. It has nothing to do with hygiene. Try some over the counter Lamisil (terbinafine) and see if that works, if not see your doctor. ...Read more
