Overcoming A 1 Month Baby Who Doesn’t Want To Suckle From The Breast?
Good morning. I have a 1 month old child, at first he often suckled from me. almost every 30 minutes to 1 hour must be breastfeeding. at the age of about 2 weeks my child is often fussy at night like not satisfied with drinking breast milk. Finally, his grandmother was given formula milk. my child seems satisfied and can sleep well after drinking formula milk. Until the age of 1 month, if my child is fussy like he is not satisfied with drinking milk, his grandmother is always given formula milk. I am afraid that my child will be more comfortable with formula milk than my breast milk. What I ask is how to make my baby more comfortable with breastfeeding and what is the impact of formula milk on the baby in the future?
Infants aged 1 month in general tend to be more frequent to consume breast milk. Breast milk is important for the development and growth of children. Babies less than 6 months old should be exclusively breastfed.
If your baby often feels dissatisfied when consuming breast milk, then this may be due to decreased milk production. Decreased milk production is something that happens quite often. If there is a decrease in milk production, the baby will be dissatisfied and cause the baby to be fussy. In addition, signs of a lack of breast milk can also cause fussiness between feedings, and the baby's weight gain is inhibited.
If your baby is currently being given formula milk to increase the amount of milk, then this can actually be done to help meet the nutrients your child needs. There are no harmful effects with formula feeding, as long as the formula is given according to the right age. However, breastfeeding has more benefits than formula milk, such as having a more complete nutritional content, increasing the child's immune system, and increasing the bond between mother and child.
but apart from that, the condition experienced by your child can also be caused by a disease such as a gastrointestinal infection, dengue fever, or respiratory infection.
Therefore, to determine the exact cause of your child's condition, you should first check with a pediatrician so that the doctor can examine your child's condition directly first, so that later the doctor can provide the right therapy for your child.
