Mistake 1: The newly secreted milk is a bit dirty and should be squeezed out.

Correction: Colostrum is the endocrine milk of a pregnant woman one week after delivery. It is pale yellow and sticky (actually not dirty), with a small amount and is very precious. Colostrum is rich in nutrients, which can enhance babies’ disease resistance and promote their healthy growth. Colostrum can also help babies excrete meconium and clean their intestines. Therefore, even mothers who have little or no breast milk should always feed their babies colostrum.

Error 2: My baby is fed milk powder. In order for the baby to eat fully, I make the milk powder thicker.

Correction: Food is absorbed in the intestinal tract. If the osmotic pressure of food (milk concentration) is too high, it can cause vomiting, abdominal distension, diarrhea, dehydration, etc. At the same time, most metabolic waste is discharged through the kidneys, while the development and function of infants’ kidneys are not yet mature. If the milk is too thick, it will increase the burden on the kidneys.

Error 3: I put the baby on the bed immediately after feeding. Holding him is too tired.

Correction: After feeding the baby, do not immediately place it on the bed. Instead, hold the baby upright so that its head rests on the mother’s shoulder. Alternatively, you can have the baby sit on the mother’s leg, holding the baby’s pillow and neck with one hand, and bending the other hand. Gently pat the baby’s back to expel the air that has been swallowed into the stomach to prevent spillage.
