Selection Of Formula Milk For Babies Aged 6 Months?
In the morning I want to ask, my child is milkless from birth, my child is 6 months less 5 days, since my baby used Nutrilon Allerpre because it was almost 6 months, I decided to change the milk to Nutrilon Royal Actiduobio 2. I just used this milk last week since I changed it milk frequency BAB is reduced so that there are no other complaints. Please explain thanks. 🙂
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Formula feeding often will make changes to the baby's bowel movements, can become more frequent (diarrhea), or even less frequent (constipation). This is influenced by the composition contained in each milk. In addition, health conditions and digestive disorders of the child can also influence this. In general, as long as your baby's bowel frequency is still normal (not less than once a week), it is also not accompanied by hard stools such as goat droppings, babies having difficulty passing bowels, hard baby's stomach, colic, or babies who appear in pain, especially when defecating , often this condition is not dangerous. However, if complaints continue continuously, especially to raise complaints as mentioned above, do not hesitate to check your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician.
Although generally harmless, it would be better if you give your baby milk. Because, many studies state that even compared to the best formula milk, the content of breast milk is still the best for babies. In addition to observing the pattern of defecation, the baby's health status also needs to be reviewed also from a variety of other aspects, including infant growth and development. Breastfed babies in general also have more optimal regrowth than babies who do not get enough milk.
Relactation (breastfeeding again) is not impossible if you no longer breastfeed your baby for 6 months. As long as you don't have contraindications in breastfeeding your baby, this action is very good for you to do, for the good of yourself and your baby. You can ask for assistance in this matter with the nearest lactation consultant.
Not only relactation, to take care of your baby's health, you also need to do the following steps:
Start teaching babies to consume MPASI (complementary foods), with consistency, amount, and frequency that is increased gradually according to the needs of the baby Give also a baby enough water Make sure the food and drink that your baby consumes is processed clean Invite your baby to actively move and play Perform baby massage so that digestion is more smooth, i.e. by doing gentle massage using both hands in a clockwise motion, move the baby's feet as well as pedaling a bicycle. ..
