Is It Natural That Some ASIPs When Warmed Turn Into Oil?
Tonight, I want to ask that I happened to give my ankle ASIP, but I found some ASIP when warmed changed like there was a separate oil and not fused. Is that a natural thing? thank you
Hello Ernawati, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Breast Milk (ASIP) is milk that is milked and then stored to be given to babies. This is an effective method used by nursing mothers who have a tendency outside the home, provided that the proper storage of breast milk is done so that the benefits of breast milk are not reduced.
Following are the recommended ways to store ASIP:
- ASIP is stored in stainless steel containers, glass bottles, or ASI bags
- Store ASIP in the refrigerator first for 30 minutes, then in the freezer, because drastic temperature changes can damage the milk content
- ASIP that will be given in less than 6 hours will not need to be stored in a cooling cabinet, can be stored at room temperature
- Breast milk for 24 hours or more should be stored in a refrigerator or cooler bag at a temperature of 4-15 degrees Celsius. This can maintain the nutritional content in breast milk which is beneficial for babies.
- If it will be used within 1 week, then ASIP is stored in the refrigerator with a temperature of 0-4 degrees Celsius, and can last up to 8 days
- If you want to be used for a long period of time, ASIP can be stored in the freezer with temperatures below 0 degrees Celsius, and can last up to 12 months. But it is recommended to store breast milk for no more than 6 months, because it will endanger the health of the baby.
As for the characteristics of the condition of ASIP is no longer good to give to babies is a lumpy, thick consistency, smell and taste of vomit or amorphous. To give milk to the baby, generally the mother will warm the ASIP. If after being warmed, the consistency of ASIP does not blend like oil, you don't need to worry, because hindmilk does usually contain fat. If this happens, you just shake the bottle slowly to restore the remaining fat components.
If you still need more information about ASIP, I suggest that you consult directly with your pediatrician or nutrition specialist about the ingredients, storage methods, and signs of breast milk that are not good.
