Choosing The Right Formula For Newborns?
Hello, I want to ask, my aunt’s daughter is only about 2 weeks old because my aunt’s breast milk is not sufficient, like it or not, my aunt gives formula milk to my nephew but every time I drink formula milk (recommended by the doctor) my nephew goes straight to the chapter (the chapter) looks like there is foam) and crying finally my aunt changed the formula milk, this second, my niece will also chapter after drinking formula but there is a time lapse, unlike the first one which immediately chapters and the chapter doesn’t foam too the little one doesn’t cry . Is my nephew not compatible with cow’s milk or forcing it with only breast milk (even if it comes out a little) is it okay if it’s chap? Thank you in advance
Infants less than 6 months of age should receive exclusive breastfeeding. Exclusive breastfeeding has various benefits, such as increasing endurance, providing adequate nutrition and vitamins for babies.
if your aunt's child at the age of 2 weeks is given formula milk, then this in most cases can indeed cause the child to tend to have diarrhea. This can be caused by lactose intolerance. Usually if there is lactose intolerance then diarrhea can occur where the bowel movements tend to be more fluid more than 3 times a day. If the condition experienced by your aunt's child is caused by lactose intolerance, it is usually necessary to consume low-lactose formula milk. If indeed breast milk can still be issued, then you should also give breast milk.
But apart from that, your aunt's condition can also be caused by other causes such as:
Effects due to unsterilized milk gastroenteritis / gastrointestinal infection Congenital abnormalities in the gastrointestinal tract, therefore, you can re-examine your nephew to a pediatrician, so that the doctor can examine your nephew's condition directly first. This way the doctor can give advice on the right milk for your nephew.
Take care of the hygiene of the milk bottles used, boil the milk bottles after each use. Do not leave the brewed milk in the bottle for too long.
