Nursing: Development of the Breast
Between the 2nd and 6th day you will experience a rush of milk to the breast, when the blood flow intensifies in preparation for the mature breast milk. Most women experience a feeling of tension to differing degrees. The breast temporarily becomes much heavier, and now needs special support. That's where the Anita Nursing bras come in.
Nursing bras have practical openings with a nursing clasp to prevent constriction during breastfeeding and allow the milk to flow freely. This takes the stress out of feeding your hungry baby and keeps your bust in shape.
Thanks to the patented AnitaMaternity KwikKlip opening, you can even open and close the bra with one hand, so you can keep your baby safely in your arm.
Breastfeeding also has a number of advantages for you. It protects you against infection in the postnatal phase, while the breastfeeding hormones stimulate the recovery of the uterus and reduce the risk of bleeding after birth. Breastfeeding has a calming effect on you, furthers the mother/baby bonding process and uses up extra calories, thus helping you regain your normal weight after the birth.
