lactation, Che Aini Abdul Razak said, many parents do not have specific knowledge about nutrition during lactation were swayed some other cultures, including pregnant women to limit consumption of food classifying as’ cold ‘or’ hot ‘, when all food is good for them.
He said, suggesting that consumption of some types of vegetables or fruits can increase breast milk, but it really depends on the compatibility and suitability body of a person.
“They say that white radish can increase the intake of milk, but for the Chinese community, the vegetable is classified as cold food and can not be taken during confinement.
“But according to some people turn, some say eat young papaya could increase breast milk content, but it is actually not subject to the type of food only points.
“One important thing to understand is that each person is not the same. An ideal food for someone is not necessarily suitable also for other people. But the situation (an increase of breast milk) is not because of food, but their compatibility with one’s body, “he said when contacted.
He has worked in Hospital Kuala Lumpur, said Nur Zahirah, green leafy vegetable intake rich in iron, a significant effect on milk production.
He said that the effectiveness of pennywort shoots are rich in iron in breast milk increase is evident through the study of the Institute Malaysia Agricultural Research and Development Institute (Mardi). Therefore, do not look at these salads are usually grown in home gardens cascading as nutrition and its benefits are proven.
“Vegetable merunggai beans are often used in cooking by the Indian dal, vegetable salads and salads king village was also found to have properties directly to the production of milk.
“What is important, nursing mothers need to eat well-balanced and nutritious drink plenty of water to help produce milk. It is the opinion which forbids women to drink plenty of water especially during confinement, but this is not a hereditary belief that good advice because of lack of water will cause other health problems, “he said.
But according to Che Aini, balanced nutrition simply not be able to help increase breast milk if the mother does not often nurse their children directly from the breast.
He said that with 18 years experience in the field of lactation, for the success of exclusive breastfeeding for six months as recommended practitioners around the world, mothers should breastfeed their babies on a regular basis according to the needs of children.
“If the mother does not give milk directly to children and more frequent pumping, although the mother to pump frequently (every two three hours), but breast milk content gradually diminishes and finally dried for not accepting the stimulus of the baby.
“This is because the best stimulus for increasing breast milk is breast milk when the baby sucks. Baby suckle act would send a signal to the brain of the mother to “tell” the body to produce new milk.
“Pumping not the same as your milk to the baby. However, no evidence of the importance to pump milk, especially in some circumstances such as when the mother worked and the baby is not in sight, breast cuts or other problems that do not allow direct feeding.
“Sometimes there are children who suffer cleft (lip or palate) that cause does not exist a vacuum in the mouth to prevent the feed directly. So in this situation, breast milk should be pumped and given to the baby, “he said.
In addition, a mother does not need to limit the feeding time for the little ones will stop feeding when he is full. It will also allow your baby is getting the thick end and filling.
Mother never need to give water to infants, especially in the first six months after birth because the milk that comes out in early breastfeeding session is 89 percent water which contains a lot of lactose.
“When the baby is thirsty, the mother can provide early milk to relieve thirst and do not need to add water because breastmilk is enough for their children,” he said.
For parents who worry and wonder whether they’ve already had to milk the filling end, Che Aini said after releasing the suction of her baby, the mother may try to squeeze a little breast.
If the milk comes out thick, then the milk is the end and it showed the baby had got it. This last milk gives her full longer while also helping to grow the perfect.
