Babies Sweat Wryly While Breastfeeding?
Hello goodnight dokI want to ask, my baby was 3 months old while breastfeeding she came out in sweat and smelled sour Is this reasonable?
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Baby sweat is a physiological condition that occurs when the baby's sweat glands are stimulated. Baby sweat production can increase at certain times, such as:
1. when sleeping
2. drink breast milk or drink milk
3. the temperature of the surrounding environment increases
4. suffer from pain
The existence of a distinctive odor in babies is a natural thing, both pleasant and unpleasant odors. Often unpleasant odors occur due to some reasons, such as leftovers in clothes, leftover milk on clothes, baby clothes that are damp due to sweat, or because there is dirt on the body attached to the folds of the baby's body.
So, if the baby's sweat odor is likely to disturb the parents, then this complaint should be consulted with a pediatrician, so the doctor can evaluate the possible causes and provide information related to the treatment of baby's kerigat odor.
In connection with your question, your baby's sweat will often appear when your baby is breastfeeding or when your baby is sleeping, so maintaining a comfortable environment when breastfeeding and when the baby sleeps can help reduce excessive baby sweating.
If even when nursing your baby sweating, or until the sweat smells uncomfortable, then this condition is probably a natural thing, and if you give milk during the day, the possibility of uncomfortable odors can arise from the baby clothes that he uses.
When a baby sweats easily, the baby's clothes will be easily moist, then dry, then moist again, causing odors in the baby and the clothes used. In addition, if breast milk or milk seeps into baby clothes, then this can also cause a pungent odor on your baby's clothes and your baby. Therefore, if the smell is uncomfortable, replace your baby's clothes, and apply powder when changing. Do not forget to clean the folds of the baby's body from dirt that might stick.
Consult with your pediatrician if these complaints bother you more.
