Cockroach In A Child’s Milk Bottle?
this morning I found a baby cockroach in a 2-year-old milk bottle. milk has already been drunk after I wash the bottle in the bottle there is a baby cockroach is it dangerous? I was very surprised to see insects in my child’s bottle, I made milk very carefully while using the bottle, the bottle was empty or might it come from milk?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, how old is your baby now?
In fact, there is no requirement for babies to consume formula milk. If your baby is less than 6 months old, you should only breastfeed exclusively. Meanwhile, if you are more than 6 months old, you can add the milk with MPASI which is rich in nutrition and also enough water, so that formula milk is no longer something that must be done.
One drawback of formula feeding is that it is potentially contaminated with harmful microorganisms, including insects such as cockroaches, if not stored properly. Aside from the milk, the appearance of cockroaches in your baby's milk bottle can also come from the bottle or the water container that you use to thin the milk. This condition is actually not always dangerous. However, cockroaches have the potential to carry dirt or potentially dangerous microorganisms when swallowed, especially by infants whose immune systems are relatively weak. This condition can make your baby experience nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and various other health problems.
The question now, is there a complaint that your baby experiences after consuming the milk?
If not, chances are the condition he experienced is not dangerous. However, if there is, and the complaint is quite severe, we recommend that you check your baby's condition directly to the doctor or pediatrician to be given the best management huh ..
Our advice, so that similar complaints do not recur again in the future, you should be more careful in storing and serving milk to your baby. Make sure the milk is stored tightly in a safe storage medium. Also use bottles that have been washed clean and sterilized, and use boiled water to thin the milk. If your baby is less than 6 months old, and you are not breastfeeding your baby's milk, practice doing relactation (breastfeeding again) for the good of your own baby.
Hope this helps ...
