Is It Dangerous To Wash Your Breasts Using Alcohol Water?
Tonight, want to ask. I didn’t have the chance to take a shower because I arrived late in the house from the office. Well, until my house was washed at me using wet tissue and alcohol water after less than 2 hours my son was nenen. Isn’t it dangerous ???
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. For nursing mothers, where the breast will be attached to the baby's mouth, alcohol is not recommended. Alcohol is a substance that can kill bacteria, but not for something that will go into the mouth, especially the baby's mouth.
Furthermore, nursing mothers should also be careful about using cosmetics that they apply on their breasts, because harmful chemicals can be swallowed by the baby, or the baby will not want to suckle because of the 'aroma' and different skin taste than usual. This makes the baby's nutrition declines, and because it is rarely stimulated, milk production will then decrease. As for your case, with a gap of 2 hours, we are not sure how much alcohol content is still left in your breast. But to avoid risk, you better not do it at all.
Our advice to you, it's best if you don't have time to take a shower, at least you rinse your chest with water and soap, or at least with just water. If there is bacteria or sweat left over, it's still better than the entry of alcohol or other chemicals into your baby's body. So, hopefully answering your question.
