Hello Intantriwahyuni,


The information is not true and only a myth yes. Worms are an infectious disease caused by worms (there are many types of worms that can infect humans). Worms are usually transmitted through food or drinks that are contaminated with worm eggs or soil contaminated with worm eggs.


Thus overslept while breastfeeding will not cause intestinal worms. It's just that if the mother overslept while breastfeeding, it is feared that the mother's body can close the baby's nose so that the baby has difficulty breathing, suffocating, thus increasing the risk of infant death due to obstruction of the airway.


Therefore you are advised to keep from falling asleep while breastfeeding the baby, not because of intestinal worms, but rather the safety factor of the baby.


Hope it helps you,


Thank you
