Provide Breast Milk With Food Supplements To Babies Aged 5 Days?
.. My baby is 5 days old, can a doctor’s prescription for food supplements … Or do you have to give a break first? R nBecause the Asi which is given together with food supplements will eliminate the vitamin content in it?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Each drug actually has different levels of absorption and interaction. There are drugs that must be consumed when the stomach is empty to work properly, there are things that must be taken together with the first meal, and there are things that must be consumed right after eating. Some should not be mixed with milk, and some are not affected at all. There can be consumed together with other drugs, and some can not. So actually, to be able to answer your question with certainty, we need to know the content of the medicine given by your pediatrician.
Even so, your pediatrician must already know that babies don't have a regular eating schedule and their food source comes only from milk. So if you give medicine, it should not be affected by milk and can be taken together.
It's just that in your case, what needs attention is that for babies who are only 5 days old, until he is 6 months old, it has been agreed that the best food source is only breast milk. All the nutrients for growth and development are fulfilled only with breast milk without adding anything.
So we feel it is necessary for you to ask your pediatrician again regarding the purpose of giving the drug to newborn babies, which is not even a medicine to cure certain diseases but only food supplements. We are very important to avoid misunderstanding, because we do not check and do not know the condition of your baby directly, also do not know the drug content that is given. So, hopefully answering your question.
