Effect Of Ginger Consumption On Breastfeeding Nursing Mothers.?

Good morning doctor … I want to ask, I just gave birth a week ago and I was breastfeeding, yesterday I consumed the red ginger drink … Do I drink the red ginger if it isn’t permissible for my baby? What is the impact of red ginger for babies? Can you add the baby’s yellow?

1 Answer:

Red Ginger or in LatinZingiber officinale var. Rubra has several effects that may be useful for the body such as for anti-inflammation, preventing hypertension and cardiovascular disease and also as an antioxidant. Some studies also show that ginger can also increase the production of breast milk. But until now more research is needed on the benefits of ginger for the human body.


Also note that ginger has a strong taste and aroma and can affect the taste of breast milk. If there is a change in the taste of breast milk then the baby may refuse to breastfeed and it is better to reduce or stop the consumption of ginger.


If your baby really looks yellow then you need to find out the cause of the yellow, is it a normal condition or also a health problem such as infection, red blood cell disorders, or digestive problems in the baby. You should consult with a pediatrician about your complaint. Especially if there are symptoms such as fever, vomiting, inactivity, difficulty waking up, bad sucking ability, fussing or fidgeting should immediately go to the nearest health facility. In the meantime you can try to give ASI as often as possible or as much as 8 to 12 times in 24 hours.
