The First Nutrition For Your Baby!

MD- Homoeopathy
Homeopath,

Breastfeeding a prerequisite ritual in the life of a newborn and the mother for the healthy growth of the baby for it is the first and the best nutritious food for a newborn.

The primary stage of nurturing the baby

The first three months of a child’s life is the most delicate period for both the mother and the child. Mothers have to go through a lot of unexpected experiences in the first few months of their motherhood – from a range of health issues to lactation and breastfeeding. In this turbulent period, a lot of suggestions and instructions are launched on the new mother regarding the care of her child. 

Worldwide, the first week of August is celebrated as the ‘breastfeeding’ awareness week. Many of us are aware of its essentiality and strive to care for our children in the best possible way; however, there is still a lack of awareness regarding exclusive breastfeeding, the duration for which a baby needs to be breastfed, and the diet of the mother during this period.

Advantage mammals, including us the humans

Breastfeeding is a unique and the best way of providing the right nutrition for a baby for healthy growth. It is unique to mammals in the animal world, including us, the humans. Several researchers have shown that exclusive breastfeeding of an infant for six months is the perfect way to feed the infant. If the baby is fed only and exclusively on breastmilk, no other additional food or water during these six months is required for the baby.

Exclusive breastfeeding has a set of advantages for the baby as well as the mother, and the advantages prove that exclusive breastfeeding is the best kickstarter for the baby’s growth.

The benefits of breastfeeding for the infants include

1.the best supply of all the nutrients an infant needs the first six months of life, thereby reducing infant mortality,

2. Helps in better development of sensory and cognitive abilities, leading to better intelligence quotient (IQ)

3. Rich in antibiotics, breast milk helps the baby in fighting infectious and chronic diseases

4. Reduces incidences of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and obesity


Advantages of exclusive breastfeeding for the mother are: 

1. It helps in effectively spacing between the childbirths

2. Decreases the risk of ovarian and breast cancer

3. Absolutely an economical and safe way to feed a child

4. Helps in creating a bond between the mother and the child

5. Prevents postpartum depression that many women face after childbirth
 

The second best for your baby

There may be reasons when the mother is unable to lactate or breastfeed the baby due to medical reasons or some unforeseen situations, the human milk from the other lactating lady is the second best option. Dai maa or the nursing mother was a common practice in the Indian culture. The ‘human milk bank' may seem like a novel concept today, but it is the modern-world reincarnation of the age-old system.One should know that the milk-substitutes may provide the required nutrients, but the useful pro-health and anti-disease properties of human breast milk cannot be replaced. This is where the human milk banks play a critical role; a human milk bank provides milk to the premature or low weight infants, the babies who separated from their mothers due to some medical complications, or to the orphaned infants.

The breast milk is collected from healthy mothers, who are lactating for six months or less and who produce excess milk than required by their infant. The breast milk is extracted by mothers using ‘breast pumps' offering a safe method to extract the milk, and deposited with the milk bank. The milk is then screened, processed, pasteurised and stored under prescribed conditions before giving it to the babies who need it. It can be stored in tightly sealed containers at home, and it is to be given to the babies within 96 hours of collection to ensure that it delivers the best nutritional value.
 

Points to remember

In the sweet chaos of taking the best care of your child, few things are bound to slip away from your mind. Let me share a few tips to breastfeed and create a strong bond with your child successfully 

1. Breastfeeding the baby within the first hour of life is essential.

2. While breastfeeding, the position is crucial; tummy to tummy is the best position. 

3. Don’t use artificial teats or pacifiers to avoid confusion with the nipple.

4. Feed the baby on his/her demand, not by yours.

5. Skin to skin touch promotes milk production.

To pass stool 4 to 5 times in a day or once in 4 to 5 days is normal. Therefore there is no need to worry.

The most effective way to stimulate lactation is continuing breast feeding. The more the child suck at breast more is the milk production. Some natural lactagogues like methi. Jeera. Rai etc they are found to be effective. Some drugs are also effective.

To augment the quantity of breast milk, take 1 gm roasted wheat flour, 10 gm walnut leaves, mix the two and prepare chapattis. Fry the chapattis in ghee made from cow's milk. Eating these chapattis for seven days increases the production of breast milk.

Normal ranges for ACTH are fairly broad and like cortisol levels are time-dependent. They also vary from assay to assay. A typical normal range for an 8 AM sample using the new assays is 10 to 50 picograms per milliliter (pg/ml); levels are usually less than 20 pg/ml at 4 PM and less than 5-10 pg/ml at midnight. People with insufficient cortisol production may exhibit symptoms such as: Muscle weakness. Fatigue. Weight loss. Increased skin pigmentation, even in areas not exposed to the sun. Loss of appetite. Diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. Dizziness. Salt cravings.
