Hello Mrs. Ndha Rama thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Premature babies are babies born before the time on the estimated birth day or less than 37 weeks. This increases all risks at the beginning of his life including the condition of organs that are not yet perfect, so that requires treatment that is really monitored.
Physically, babies born prematurely will look different from babies born normally. The body will be smaller and the head size slightly larger. In addition, including the ability to suck and swallow that is not perfect so that it will be difficult to accept intake. That's why the process of gaining weight will be slower than normal babies born.
The best intake for infants, including premature babies is none other than breast milk. So to increase body weight, of course, is to provide breast milk intake as often as possible and in small to moderate portions so it does not cause vomiting or nausea in infants. If you have exclusively breastfed, then you need to continue what you have given, and remain patient in giving it. When the baby does not seem to want to suckle, it can be dikarekan because the growth of the digestive tract is not as perfect as in normal babies born. Therefore you must be more patient and painstaking in giving your baby milk. You should not add to formula milk, but if you want to add it, you should consult with a doctor who will understand by checking the condition of your baby.
Infants seem to sleep more than awake to suckle, this is because babies are still unable to fully adapt to life outside the womb, so that their habits in the womb are still carried away by babies so that they always seem to sleep and are rarely awake. Always try to wake your baby when it is time to suckle. In addition, always provide stimulus when the baby is breastfeeding, so that when breastfeeding the baby does not feel too comfortable until he is asleep again, you can provide stimulus such as rubbing the soles of his feet, rubbing his palms, or rubbing his head. When he has been breastfeeding, try to get the milk into the intestine before returning to put him to sleep, by holding him in an upright position aimed at getting the milk to fall into the intestine. Provide comfort when your baby sleeps, so that breast milk that enters his body can be converted into fat with the comfortable sleep process. You can membedongnya so that the baby feels the same comfort and safety while he was still in the womb. You should keep your baby in the sun in the morning to help in the absorption of calcium and the regulation of the baby's immune system.
Keep trying to breastfeed your baby with breast milk, so that milk production does not decrease and stop because it is not breastfeeding the baby. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
