Can Babies Drink 3 Months Of Milk After DPT Immunization?
I have a 3 month old baby. Now the second DPT immunization schedule. Is there any effect if my baby drinks milk because I have little milk so that my baby does not want to suck breast milk? Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Basically there is no link between consumption of breast milk, formula milk with immunization, regardless of DPT or other immunizations. Infants who consume formula milk can still be immunized as babies who consume breast milk because it has nothing to do.
So the focus is actually more on the use of formula milk itself. If all this time your baby has been undergoing exclusive breastfeeding, it is unfortunate if you immediately replace formula milk without trying first. Because after 6 months of age, the benefits of breast milk cannot be replaced by formula milk. Among the ways that you can try to increase milk production are:
Keep breastfeeding even though a little discharge because stimulation is important
Get plenty of rest, especially if you are a career woman
Avoid anxiety and stress
Increase the consumption of water
Expand high-fiber foods such as vegetables, fruit and cereals
Eat salmon, oats, and dates
Avoid breathing prokok
If indeed after various attempts at breastfeeding you are still not enough, and that can be seen from the baby's weight gain which is insufficient when measured every month, then you should consult a lactation doctor or pediatrician first to be given medicine to increase breast milk, or you can also directly ask about the possibility of replacing with formula milk. So, hopefully answering your question.
