BREASTFEEDING PROBLEMS Meaning

The breasts begin their work once the labour/delivery pains have begun. The hormone prolactin is responsible for the secretion of the milk. The first milk of the mother is called colostrum. It comes as yellow to orange in color and thick and sticky in texture. It is easy to digest and best for the baby. Colostrum has a laxative effect on the baby that helps him pass his stools, which goes on to help in the removal of excess bilirubin (a yellow pigment in blood & stool) and helps prevent jaundice. This type of pre milk substance flows for about 2-4 days before the letdown of the actual milk.1

According to Ayurveda, the mother’s breast being located in the Anahata chakra (heart center) of the body signifies that breasts are supposed to provide love and nurturing nourishment to the baby. Breast milk is called amrita, nectar, for the growing child. It is the essence (upadhatu) of the rasa dhatu (plasma - nutrients of blood).1
