Can Breastfeeding Mothers Drink High-calorie, High-protein Milk?
Morning., I am breastfeeding a 2.5 month old child. I still have 2 cardboard nutrican milk leftovers. Can you drink it? Can I say that the milk is safe for babies?
Nutrican milk is milk that is high in calories and high in protein. In medical practice, this milk can be given for additional nutrition for patients with chronic diseases such as cancer, tuberculosis, HIV / AIDS, and can also be given to pregnant women with underweight fetuses.
Milk manufacturers claim that this milk can also be used to maintain weight, gain weight, reduce the risk of gastrointestinal disorders, and increase appetite. This type of milk can be used as a substitute for food in people who are unable to eat solid foods or also as a supplement.
Nursing mothers certainly need adequate nutrition in order to produce good milk for babies. Nursing mothers need more calories than women who are not breastfeeding. In addition, greater calories are needed if nursing mothers are also actively working / on the move. Calories needed by nursing mothers can be obtained from a variety of foods including:
Lean meat, fish (salmon), eggs as a source of protein, DHA
Green vegetables as a source of fiber, vitamins and minerals
Fruits as a source of vitamins
Rice (red) that contains more nutrients and fiber
Note the number of servings that need to be drunk when making this milk as a complement. The amount of dose should also be adjusted if the mother takes other supplements. Because it contains high protein the use of milk must be considered especially for patients with kidney disorders who need protein intake restrictions.
Please consult with your doctor / nutritionist if you want to know the complete nutritional settings during breastfeeding. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
