The Impact Of Using Combination Birth Control Pills On The Breast Milk That Babies Drink?
Thank you, I was helped by the doctor’s answer. R n Is my baby not going to lack nutrition? And I can help with supportive sometime but I will continue breastfeeding thanks
Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Combination birth control pills will only affect the amount of breast milk, but will not affect the nutritional content of breast milk or cause certain side effects / negative effects for your baby. Breastfeeding has many benefits for babies and it is recommended that breastfeeding be continued until the child is 2 years old. Even today, breastfeeding can be continued beyond the age of 2 years (if indeed your child and you still want it) because the nutrition in breast milk is still very much and is still very useful even for children 2 years and over.
It's better for now, you consider in advance how long you want to breastfeed your baby. If you are going to breastfeed your baby until the age of 2, you should consider using birth control which does not reduce milk production. But once again, the choice of course lies with the mother herself. Your baby will not lack nutrition as long as you provide exclusive breastfeeding (or mixed with formula milk) in sufficient quantities for up to 6 months, and you provide complete nutritious food when starting solids.
Here are articles that you can read regarding the benefits of breastfeeding and giving complementary foods to babies
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
