Can Breastfeeding Mothers Eat Durian When A Child Vomits?
Good night. I want to ask. My child is currently 11 months old, only drinking milk and mineral water. It so happens that my child is currently vomiting and his stomach is bloated. Can I eat durian or not? R nDoes it have the potential to worsen my child’s digestion and react to the heat in his stomach? R nPlease answer. R nThank you
Good evening, thanks for the question
For pregnant and lactating women there is actually no specific prohibition not to consume durian. In moderation, durian fruit has many benefits if consumed.
One of them durian fruit contains high fiber so that if consumed in excessive amounts can cause digestive disorders such as bloating and constipation. For this reason, mothers should limit the durian that they want to consume to prevent adverse effects on babies who are still breastfed.
Handling of diarrhea and vomiting in children in general includes:
- Provision of ORS (rehydration)
- Provision of zinc
- Giving ASI / food
- Provision of antibiotics only on the indication and doctor's prescription
What mothers can currently do at home is giving fluids or ORS according to the baby's wishes, then continue feeding after the rehydration process, avoid giving cow's milk products, keep food clean and the baby's environment. If the complaint has not improved, do further consultation with a doctor. Beware of signs of baby dehydration such as sunken eyes, no tears when crying, become inactive, no longer want to suckle, and look weak. If this condition occurs, it means that the baby needs immediate action because it can be fatal.
That's all, hope you can help
