Causes And Overcomes Babies Who Do Not Want To Drink Milk In A Bottle?
Hello. I am asha. Currently my child is 2.5 months old. I work 8 hours and leave my child. But my son did not want to drink ASIP using a bottle of pacifier, he also spooned it with gamma. I am worried that he is dehydrated, because for 8 hours he has not drunk anything. R nWhich is better, bring the child to work (an hour’s trip) or he can still survive without drinking for 8 hours? R nThank you for the answer.
Thank you Asha Harda for your question on the HealthReplies.com forum, babies in their early life really need adequate nutrition for their growth and development. Where the nutrition in this baby can be fulfilled by breast milk intake alone in the first 6 months. At the age of a baby of about 2 months, usually a child can be breastfed up to 7 to 9 times a day, or at least approximately a baby can be breastfed about every 3 hours. If the intake of breast milk is not adequate at this time of course this can have an impact on its growth and development later. Where to assess the adequacy of breast milk in a baby can be seen from several signs such as:
- The baby will be relaxed and satisfied after the feed and will release the suction on its own
- weight gain more than 500 grams in a month
- urinate more than 6 times a day with the color of urine that is not thick and smells not strong
Therefore, at this time you should keep trying to be able to breastfeed your child, because at this time the child's nutritional intake will greatly affect his development and growth.

That's all from me, hope it can help
