Why When Pumping, Is Milk Always Foamy And Is It Okay To Drink It To The Baby?
I want to ask, why when I am pumping, does my milk foam? Is it okay to drink it to the baby? What is the cause? Thank you in advance
Hello, Asyun. Thank you for the questions submitted to HealthReplies.com We can understand the concern you feel.
In general, foam in dairy milk is not a sign that shows a decrease in the quality of breast milk, especially if it is seen in breast milk that has just been milked. The quality of breast milk can indeed be assessed through its physical characteristics, including color, taste, and aroma. The color of ASI is generally white or yellowish (the higher the chance of foremilk [the milk that comes out early in the breastfeeding session], the milk will appear whiter and thinner. The taste and aroma of breast milk varies, depending on the food and medicines consumed by the mother. As long as the milk does not appear to clot that cannot be dissolved even though it has been stirred with a spoon and the aroma and taste is not acidic, the milk is still appropriate to be given to the baby.
Before milking, always make sure to wash your hands with soap and running water. Prepare a container that has been washed with hot water and soap to collect milk from the milk. Breast milk can be milked by hand or pump / pemersa manual or electrically. Do not hesitate to consult with your doctor or pediatrician if you have problems preparing for breast milk.
