The Effect Of Breast Milk That Is Not Given To Babies For 1 Day?
I want to ask. Now I am busy working from morning to night. Meanwhile, at work, I have never had a breast pump. When my son came home at night When I wake up sometimes I give breast milk. Is my breast milk stale if I don’t drink it in a day? Because my child sometimes wants to vomit when I drink my breast milk. Thank you
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. By stating that you never pump breastmilk, we are assuming that your question about whether breast milk spoils, refers to the milk that has not been removed from your breast. If that's what you mean, then breast milk does not go bad. The milk in the breast will not decrease in quality even though it is never expelled. Even so, breast milk that is not removed from the breast can trigger inflammation which actually makes the breasts swollen, red and painful.
On the other hand, expressed breast milk can go bad if not stored properly. For that you must know that expressed breast milk can survive:
For 6 hours if kept at room temperature For 24 hours if kept in a cool box with an ice pack For 5 days if placed in the refrigerator section with a temperature of not more than 4 degrees Celsius For 6 months if kept in the refrigerator freezer with a temperature of -18 degrees Celsius
So that if it is more than that the ASI will be damaged. In addition, it should also be noted the difference between spitting up and vomiting. Spitting up is a time when your child re-releases milk from his mouth but without pressure from the baby's stomach. In contrast, vomiting occurs when the discharge is accompanied by strong pressure in the stomach and can be painful. Spitting up is harmless and most of them do not require special drugs.
So actually it would be much better if you keep milking your milk, because the best nutrition for babies under 6 months of age is breast milk. But if it can't be given to your baby for one reason or another, at least do it to reduce the risk of inflammation in your breasts. If you are still worried about your child's condition, have your child checked by the pediatrician and while at home, continue to give your child nutrition as usual and pay attention to his active behavior, whether fever, diarrhea or the like. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
