Can Special LBW Milk Be Consumed Long-term In Babies Aged 3 Months?
At noon, my child is now 3 months less than 1 week old. Back then 8 months weighing 2.2. All of them drink lactogen milk prematurely. Now weighing 4.2. Can I still drink that milk? Or should I replace the usual milk.
Hello, thank you for your question.
Breastmilk (breast milk) is still the best intake for babies. Although sometimes formula milk can still be given, especially for certain medical reasons. There are various types of formula milk, for example the one you give your baby, which is milk specially formulated for babies born prematurely.
Babies who are born underweight are more susceptible to diseases that have the risk of inhibiting their growth and development. Therefore, breastfeeding is very important for babies. Breast milk is still considered an intake that is easy to digest and has many benefits compared to formula milk for babies under 6 months of age.
For babies aged 3 months who are female, the ideal body weight ranges from 4.5-5 kg, while for babies who are male, the ideal body weight is between 4-6 kg. If your baby is under enough weight, you can give him breast milk only until he is 6 months old. If there are certain obstacles that require you to provide formula milk, you can provide formula milk that is appropriate for his age. However, if your baby has a history of certain diseases (other than low birth weight), do not hesitate to consult directly with a pediatrician to determine the right type of formula milk.
