Caring Breast and Nipple While Pregnant
Many pregnant women ignore breast care. Perhaps because lazy or will not know the actual benefits. Though breast care during pregnancy is essential for the smooth milk soon after birth.

As known, the breasts during pregnancy will change. Among others feel tighter, bigger and fuller. That said, before the birth, every breasts weighed 1.5 times larger than before pregnancy.
Fine veins below the skin surface also becomes clearer breasts, blood vessels grow and expand, as well as the nipple and areola (the area around the nipple) becomes darker. Around the areola, in the days before giving birth white spots appear to contain glands that produce oil so as to lubricate and protect the nipple when breastfeeding.
Further explained, in the breast are 15-25 segments / lobe consisting of reservoir gland / alveoli. Interrelated muscle layer is formed around the alveoli, which will be contracted to squeeze the milk out of the pockets of small channels that flow into the nipple.
Since the beginning of pregnancy, hormones stimulate the growth of cells in milk production in the alveoli. The most important hormone in the formation of milk is prolactin, which started working since the age of 8 weeks of pregnancy. This hormone also maintain the balance of the amount of the amount of milk produced at each stage with the help of estrogen hormone made by the placenta.
In addition, prolactin also make the color of the areola becomes darker and more prominent nipples. But for the nipples flat or sinking into, this bulge is not felt.

If the breasts are very large, it is better to choose who wear a wire buffer. Due to prop up a bra that is not well with large breasts tend to go down and form a crease in the bottom of the breast. Meanwhile, if the mother does not maintain cleanliness and dryness in the crease, then the fungus normally will grow.
