Breastfeeding is a wonderful gift of nature to women and her newborn. It benefits mother as well as baby and it comes free.
Benefits for Baby
2.Improved digestive tract performance: Breastmilk protects the newborn’s digestive system and regulates its function. It does not let the stool accumulate in the bowel and reduces the chances of Neo-natal jaundice.
4.Adjusted to baby’s needs and easy to digest: Mum’s milk contains easily digestible and non-allergenic nutrients. Proportions of these components are perfectly adjusted to baby’s nutritional needs. Diarrhea and constipation are seen less often in breastfed babies. Cow’s milk contains lactoglobulin which sometimes damages baby’s intestinal wall.
Important things to remember:
Situations requiring breastmilk expression: Breastfeeding mums sometimes face situations where it is necessary to express milk. In these situations, breastmilk can be expressed manually or with a breast pump.
Thawing & Heating Milk
You can give your baby expressed breastmilk with a cup, spoon or bottle. Try to express, store, heat and feed the milk in the same container as it reduces handling and chance of contamination from disease causing organisms.
All equipment used for expressing and storing breastmilk – such as bottles, bowls and other equipment – should be thoroughly wash equipment in warm soapy water, rinse well and air-dry or dry parts with clean paper towel. Store it covered until next use.
If you’re using a pump, wash the parts of the pumping kit once every 24 hours.
In between expressing sessions within 24 hours, you can store the kit unrinsed and covered in the fridge. You can also store it rinsed and covered at room temperature.
Warning! This information applies for a normal healthy baby being fed by his/her own mother’s breastmilk. If your baby is premature or sick, follow the guidelines given by the health professionals caring for your baby.
