Side Effects If The Child Consumes Formula Milk That Has Been More Than 2 Hours?
Hello, what are the risks for babies if they drink formula milk for more than 2 hours ?? Infants aged 20 months
Thank you for the question.
If you can still give your baby enough milk, there is really no need for a 20-month-old baby to get additional formula milk. However, if you feel the need to give him extra formula milk, then you should make sure you give him the right way, so that it does not cause your baby to experience health problems.
Formula milk is best when consumed immediately after thawing. In this way, the nutritional content in the milk can be better maintained, and its potential contaminated with impurities and harmful microorganisms can be minimized. At the latest, this formula must be finished in 1-2 hours after it is made. This recommendation can certainly differ depending on the type of formula milk in question and the environmental conditions in which the formula is stored.
Giving formula milk that has been thawed more than 2 hours to the baby is very risky causing it to experience indigestion, for example nausea, vomiting, colic, diarrhea, and so on. This condition occurs because the potential for this milk to be contaminated is higher. Not only that, the nutrient content in milk that has been thawed will eventually change, so that it can become toxic when consumed.
Therefore, our advice, only give your baby fresh formula milk (freshly diluted) and in accordance with the recommendations for making and serving it, yes. balanced nutrition so that nutritional needs are met properly.
If a complaint appears related to his health, immediately consult his doctor or the nearest pediatrician.
