& # 39; Taking care of very young children means that you can be very socially isolated and that it is very difficult to get out. But breastfeeding is not the time to catch up with Facebook & # 39 ;, he said.

He explained babies & # 39; s who responded to and respond to signals from their mother's face and expression during breastfeeding.

An experiment conducted by Harvard Medical School found that babies became anxious if their mother had an empty expression while breastfeeding.

A breastfeeding expert also told the publication that it is also important for mother to pay attention to the facial expressions of their babies during feeding time.

& # 39; Mothers get to know the nuances of their baby's body language. This is important for connecting and tuning to the baby so that they can respond to the baby's early signs that they are hungry, saturated, tired, uncomfortable, & # 39; said Pinky McKay, expert in the field of breastfeeding.
