In the initial stages, the breast cancer has no obvious symptoms and it vary in individuals from lumps to swelling and changes in the skin.

A lump too small which is felt does not cause any unusual changes and it is unnoticed.

However, in many cases appearance of new lump or a mass is the first sign noticed. The lump may be hard to touch with uneven edges and they are painless.

But there are cases the lump is very tender, round edged and soft. More lumps are painless.

Breast Cancer Symptoms are:
Swelling of part of the breast or all parts
Skin irritation in the breast.
Nipple pain,
Nipple begins to turn inward (inverted) slowly
Breast pain.

Appearances of changes in the nipple like redness, scaly formation,
thickening of the nipple.
A nipple discharge (bloody or clear fluid)
Changes in the skin of the breast like thickening.
Arm pit with lymph nodes or a mass or lump

It is essential to note that these symptoms always an indication for a breast cancer. But in some cases the above symptoms may be a symptom of non-cancerous conditions like in an infectious cyst.

In the early stages of the breast cancer, the cancerous tissue formation is hidden inside the tissues and it is always not possible to see the cancer by naked eyes. The changes happen in the breast may not be always cancer. A lump may come by an infection and it may disappear. The changes in the skin surface of the breast may be due to sunburn. A rash may be by an allergy. But all these symptoms to be decided for a benign or malignant type of growth.

Breast feeding is very essential for your newborn baby to become healthy. Because babies can loss their birth weight in first few weeks. New parents are feel uncomfortable to feed their baby with their breast but don't be like, it will lead your baby into unhealthy and also cause many problems to mother. I hope this will help to know about how to breastfeed a newborn, how often and how long need to feed your baby.

Minimum 8 times and maximum 12 times in a day you have to feed your baby. Take 2 to 3 hours gap between every feeding it is for day time, At night you have to feed your baby for every 4 hours. When you saw a sign hungry with your baby like hand into mouth, you can start your feeding no need to wait until the going into cry. Some babies are sleepy they won't cry so you have to wake up your baby and then give milk. Leave your baby for long time with your breast after that you can feed your baby into another side. Frequent feeding will also increase your milk supply then you can give enough milk to your baby.

Sit comfortable at the time of breast feeding, fit a baby into your breast and latch nipple in a correct position on your baby mouth. And then put your hand on babies back shoulder for support. Your baby mouth needs to cover your whole areola not only the nipple of your breast. Feed at least 20 to 45 minutes or continue until your baby stop feeding. Some babies are need to feed at both breast and some babies are satisfied after feeding with one breast, at that time you have to feed in another breast at next time of feeding. At the time of breast feeding every mom's hold their child at different position like cradle hold, cross cradle hold, clutch and side laying position. The position is whatever it may be but the only thing is it should be comfortable for you and your baby. After finishing feeding remove your breast as gently from your baby mouth.

After your delivery your body will contain some special milk it is good for your baby health, so you can feed your baby in a delivery room itself. New mom feels uncomfortable but it is a learning skill you have to practice for that. And one more thing new moms need more energy for frequent feeding. So they need to take more meals and healthy snacks between them. With early born babies it is hard to baby as well as mother that time they have to take more nutrient foods for their baby growth and also for mother health. Please be aware with this, and don't feel shy to breastfeed it is about your baby healthy. Learn the hungry sign of your baby and give enough milk to him/her because the breast milk can easily digested. Like that learn that when to wake up and how close to your baby.
