Does Having Sex While Breastfeeding Affect The Baby’s Body Condition?
Afternoon … I was busui and my baby was only 2 months old. Can conjugal relations affect the baby’s body? If people say the baby’s body can be soft or the Javanese language is soft like that .. The experience of the second child is like that … I often get in touch with my husband while breastfeeding and my baby’s body is very soft. Please advise. thanks.

It is not enough to monitor whether a baby's weight is normal or not by a subjective assessment of the softness of your baby's body. First, you need to have your baby examined at the nearest health facility to have their weight measured with standardized weighing devices. Then, health workers will usually plot your baby's weight into a special curve so that you can assess whether your baby's weight is normal, excessive, or even less. If your baby's body weight is still in accordance with the benchmark normal weight curve of his age and no other growth and development obstacles encountered, then your baby's soft body is most likely not a dangerous condition and requires special treatment. Your baby's body feels soft because it may be due to the amount of body fat composition compared to the muscle. You need to be vigilant if the softness of your baby's body appears accompanied by delays in growth and development. If not, then don't worry too much huh ... So that your baby grows and develops as it should, just focus on breastfeeding breastfeeding every time he asks, increase the quality and quantity of your milk by drinking and eating highly nutritious foods, as well as continuing stimulation of your baby's development accordingly her age.
There is no prohibition for breastfeeding mothers to have sex with her husband. Sexual intercourse during breastfeeding should not affect the quality or quantity of breast milk that you produce. The worry of sexual intercourse while breastfeeding is the possibility of pregnancy that can make the distance between your births too close. In addition to potentially higher causes of pregnancy, labor and post-copy disorders, the distance between pregnancies that are too close also risks making your baby unable to get enough milk until he is 2 years old. Therefore, if you want to have sex after childbirth, you should use the right contraception. Consult directly with your doctor or obstetrician to choose the type of contraception that suits your condition and does not interfere with your milk production.
I hope this helps.
