Don’t let the possible misunderstanding delay your baby’s health
Misunderstanding 1: The more vitamins and minerals are absorbed, the better. Although vitamins and minerals are very important for infants and young children, they cannot be replaced or replaced by the baby too much, otherwise the baby’s body will be adversely affected and the harm will be harmful.Vitamin A and D poisoning, excessive calcium supplementation, etc.
Misunderstanding 2: Breast milk looks thin, not as thick as milk from milk powder, so giving up breast milk replacement, replacing milk with breast milk. Breast milk replacement has many benefits for babies. Breast milk is rich in antibodies that resist many diseases.Babies caused by breast milk are less ill; the ratio of breast milk to milk contains more comprehensive and adequate nutrients, and the baby taking breast milk is healthier; breast milk is easier for the baby to digest and absorb, and the absorption rate is the highest.
For mothers, breast milk replacement is more convenient, saves money, does not require disinfection, and the temperature is appropriate; breast milk replacement mothers recover faster and are less susceptible to breast disease.
Misunderstanding 3: The longer the breast milk arrives, the better and better. Although more and more mothers have replaced breast milk, some people have the opposite misunderstanding: they believe that the longer the breast milk replacement time, the better.
Pediatric experts point out that when breastfeeding for 4-6 months, due to the rapid growth and development of infants, the nutritional content of breast milk can no longer meet its needs.
Therefore, it is important for infants and young children to start adding complementary foods after 6 months.
The addition of foods during the milk replacement period can almost supplement the nutrition of the baby, and also enable the baby to learn to swallow, chew, and exercise the digestion and absorption capacity of the insulin tract.
If your baby has not added any food even at the age of one, it is very wrong.
