Nursing: Tiredness and Relaxation

Treat Yourself!

Body care contributes to your well-being. After the birth, stick to the care routine you followed during pregnancy - your skin will thank you for it!

There are a few points to observe, however: keep soap, creams, and perfumes away from the nipples and surrounding area. If you have sensitive skin, you should use hand cream regularly, as frequent washing of the hands raises the risk of minor wounds becoming infected.

How about a nice bath?

There are some great bath additives around with essential oils such as lavender (relaxing) and vanilla (harmonizing). Put some gentle music on and take half an hour out.

Reinvigorate tired feet!

The shifting of the spinal cord's center of gravity and weight gain that comes with pregnancy can lead to a flattening of the foot arch. The occasional foot bath can do wonders for this.

Take a few minutes to massage your feet using invigorating creams or oils. You'll be surprised how reviving this can be - not just for your feet.

What to do about sore nipples:

  • Just before feeding, squeeze out a few drops of milk: that way your baby doesn't have to suck as hard and your breast will be less irritated.
  • Use an infrared lamp on your breast for a few minutes several times a day: the warmth has a healing effect.
  • Refrain from pulling off or softening the scurf on your sore nipples: it is part of the healing process and will not bother your baby.
