Can SGM New Born Milk Be Taken By Nursing Mothers?
Tonight Doc. I want to ask, at home there are SGM leftover foods that have not been accepted by my child when I was born, because my ASI did not come out smoothly at that time. After smooth breastfeeding I did not give the milk back to my child. But I think it’s a shame if I want to throw it away. So can I who is breastfeeding drink SGM milk for the newborn? Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The dairy products you mentioned are indeed dairy products whose needs are tailored to children whose age is printed on the packaging. But the purpose of the classification is as information to consumers, that if the milk is consumed by younger children, the nutrients may not be suitable or can not be digested properly because it should be consumed by children with a digestive system and higher nutritional needs. Meanwhile, if consumed by children whose age is above the recommended age on the packaging, the milk may not be able to meet the nutritional needs it needs, because it should be consumed by babies or younger children.
So regarding your question, it doesn't matter if you want to consume the milk. It will not be dangerous for you, because even babies are safe for consumption, especially in adults. It's just that consuming milk will not make your nutritional needs fulfilled, especially now that you are breastfeeding, which requires various nutrients to support your daily life and support breastfeeding activities.
Therefore, if you want to consume this milk, make sure that the milk does not make you full and reduce the intake of nutrients that you should consume, namely from meat, vegetables, fruit, or milk that is more appropriate for your age. So, hopefully answering your question.
