Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
There is no absolute prohibition for nursing mothers to drink ice. As long as you can make sure the ice is made from clean and boiled water, and is processed in a clean way, without the addition of harmful chemicals (such as sweeteners or artificial coloring), it's fine if you want to drink ice. You should not consume ice when you are breastfeeding if you are allergic to cold foods and drinks or are experiencing inflammation of the airways that makes colds, coughs, shortness, itchy throat, and many other complaints. If none of these conditions you experience, and if you feel comfortable after consuming ice, this is actually good for increasing your milk production.
Colds in infants are not directly related to the habits of mothers who consume ice. More often, colds in infants are caused by other factors, such as allergies (can be due to cold, pollen, animal dander, dust mites), irritation (for example due to exposure to smoke or pollution), or infection of the airways (often due to viruses or bacteria) . It could also, colds in infants caused by obstruction in the airways, such as due to septal deviation or entry of foreign objects.
Handling colds in infants should not be done haphazardly. Consumption of beverage products that you mention to nursing mothers should not necessarily necessarily cure colds in infants. However, consumption of vitamin C-rich beverage products in nursing mothers can help make the mother's stamina and endurance increase, and the impact, milk production can increase. Breastmilk which is rich in antibodies, if consumed by infants, can also increase endurance. In this way, the cold he experiences is also expected to improve. Also consider giving breastfeeding by avoiding excessive exposure to cold, smoke, dust and dry air. If possible, use air humidifiers in your baby's home. Also keep the environment around the baby so that it is always clean. Wash him with warm water, then wear clothes that warm him. Do not carelessly give medicines to your baby without first seeing a doctor.
However, if a cold that your baby has been experiencing for a long time (more than 1 week), accompanied by fever for more than 3 days, or other severe complaints, such as tightness, weakness, difficulty breathing, repeated nosebleeds, etc., you should still check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician. It is feared, there are certain diseases that underlie his complaints and need further treatment.
Hope this helps ...
