Effect Of Mixing Formula Milk On Digestion Of 1 Month Babies?
Hello Wr. Wb r nGood evening, I have a child aged 1 month past 4 days so far he is drinking LACTOGEN formula without breast milk assistance and does not experience any digestive disorders or allergies (suitable), but currently I am replacing the formula with milk the BEBELOVE formula due to consideration of the nutritional content of BEBELOVE. After my baby consumed it for 3 days he also did not experience any digestive problems or any allergies (suitable), but the difference was there when he took it. The ratio is 3: 1. 3 spoons of LACTOGEN spent 1-2 hours, while when he consumed BEBELOVE only 1 spoon had just finished 1-2 hours. The question is whether my child does not like BEBELOVE milk? Do I just continue with the LACTOGEN milk? What are the basic differences between these 2 formulas? Explanation please. walaikumsalam Wr.Wb
Hello Dede, thank you for your question
Basically, the best intake for babies aged less than six months is breast milk (ASI). However, if your wife's condition makes it impossible for her to breastfeed or join a relactation program, the last option is formula feeding. There are several guidelines for choosing formula milk for babies less than 6 months:
make sure formula milk products are registered with BPOM RI
if your baby is normal and does not show an allergy to cow's milk, you should avoid using soy-based milk
Also avoid using whole cow's milk, cereal milk, sweetened condensed milk, goat's milk, evaporated milk, and almond milk
At the beginning of the introduction of formula milk, it is recommended to mix it with breast milk
In addition, it is better if those who provide formula milk are not mothers who give birth to babies because the baby will expect to get breast milk, also choose a soft pacifier
There are various kinds of formula milk brands on the market. In principle, everything tries to resemble the nutritional content of breast milk, including carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and minerals. What distinguishes these various types of formula is the type of protein contained in them. For newborns, it is recommended to choose formula milk with a higher whey content because it is easier to digest. Regarding the baby's preferences, choose the brand that he prefers, if you are confused or in doubt, you should consult directly with a pediatrician.
Hope this information is useful
