The Reason For Babies Aged 4 Months Do Not Want To Drink Breast Milk Or Formula Milk?
HealthReplies.com ,, my child is 4 months old. He was very difficult to drink milk / milk. Direct breastfeeding is also difficult and unwilling. We have done everything, changed the milk, swung, etc. Why should we with our child?
Hello Mrs. Biadelma Nanda Illiandi thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Infants who have difficulty drinking milk / breast milk can be due to several conditions such as:
there are disorders of the mouth and oral cavity such as canker sores, making it uncomfortable when drinking milk
the baby is sick for example the flu
the baby is teething so the gum pain will make him lazy to drink milk
the baby is fed up drinking milk
babies feel full easily
if this condition only happens for a while, then you don't need to worry, therapy, if this has happened in a long time, then you should take your baby to see a doctor or pediatrician. While what you can do yourself at home are:
look for possible wounds in the baby's oral cavity that cause it lazy to drink milk
give milk / milk a little at a time but as often as possible
watch if your baby has started to grow teeth
pay attention to whether your baby is having respiratory problems or flu
Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
