Hello Ms. Esa! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Do not want to breastfeed does not mean that your child does not like breast milk. Keep giving ASI as long as you are not prohibited by doctors from giving ASI. Make sure you have improved the position and attachment of the baby when giving milk. Breast milk is the best milk for babies, not formula milk. Do not want to suckle experienced by your mother may be a sign of interference with the body. There may be interference with the digestive tract, so he has difficulty breastfeeding. Disorders of the gastrointestinal tract can occur starting from the structure in the mouth (including the lips, gums, tongue, and palate), esophagus, stomach, to the lower gastrointestinal tract. In addition, he may experience shortness when breastfeeding, so he rarely wants to breastfeed. Shortness when breastfeeding is often caused by interference with the baby's heart. Mothers should bring their children to see a pediatrician to be examined directly. His weight and growth curve will also be seen to find out whether the baby's nutritional status is currently normal or not. The doctor may also suggest further tests based on suspicion. The doctor will explain the results of these examinations and provide suggestions for actions that should be done. Follow the advice of the doctor so that your baby can grow healthy.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
