Swollen Feet In Infants 3 Months After Consumption Of Formula Milk?
I want to ask my 3-year-old son, how can my wife come out only a little and my child is often fussy hungry and I am forced to not give him continued milk, but how come lately his legs are just right when my calves go down, why are they often swollen and they suddenly go flat, why?
The best food for babies 0-6 months remains breast milk. Furthermore, ASI can be continued until the child is around 2 years old. If for some reason the mother cannot breastfeed, formula milk can be considered, of course, after making a maximum effort to increase milk production, yes.
Regarding formula milk for babies under 6 months, it is advisable to consult with your pediatrician first. Meanwhile, if you and your wife feel a little breast milk, try to do some of the following tips to facilitate the production of breast milk:
Continue to breastfeed the baby directly or can be pumped regularly Try to relax and not stress Rest enough to not get tired Drink plenty of water Consumption of healthy and nutritious food Husband can massage the mother so that the mother is more relaxed As for the swollen feet in the baby, the condition can be caused by some conditions such as allergic reactions, skin irritation, history of previous collisions, infections, and the effects of wearing pants, diapers, or socks that are too tight.
If swelling disappears, I suggest that you see your baby directly to the pediatrician so that further tests can be done to determine the cause as well as discussing about formula milk for your baby. If needed the doctor can provide treatment for your baby.
While waiting for the doctor, you and your wife should provide clothes and diapers that are comfortable and not too tight, wear socks only if necessary, and avoid massage or massage the baby's feet too hard. If you want to massage, just gently massage yourself or with a certified therapist in baby massage.
