Baby milk products in the Philippines contain many nutrients that could have added health benefits for adults and help support a baby in their first few days of life.
What are the side effects of having baby milk products?
- However, people who attempt nonprescription supplements, such as by “borrowing” milk from a lactating friend, may expose themselves to deadly conditions through breast milk, such as HIV.
- Healthcare experts do not know if it is secure to use baby milk supplements for long-term support. They also do not know if it is safe during breastfeeding or pregnancy.
Baby milk products benefits
Researchers have consistently documented the health benefits of newborns consuming baby milk products.
These benefits include:
- Encouraging breastfeeding: Babies who drink baby milk shortly after birth are more likely to breastfeed, and their mothers are more likely to produce breast milk.
- Preventing failure to thrive: In babies with low birth weight, receiving milk from the mother may support healthy weight gain and avoid failure.
- Supporting early nutrition: A baby milk supplement is a baby’s first food, providing hydration, protein, and essential nutrients immediately after birth.
How are baby milk products made?
Baby milk is a thick, highly concentrated milk that may be clear, yellow, or white. It can look or feel sticky. Rather than offering lots of calories or fat, it helps enhance a baby’s immune system in the earliest days of life.
Do I need to sterilize my baby's bottles?
Before the first use, you'll need to sterilize nipples and bottles in a rolling boil for 5 minutes. You can also sterilize them with a store-bought countertop or microwaveable sterilizer, but boiling works just as well and costs nothing.
How do I prepare my baby's bottles?
Prepare your baby's formula by mixing water and the appropriate amount of powdered infant formula. The packaging on the side of the formula container will tell you how much to use. Carefully follow the directions. You can use tepid (room temperature) tap water, as long as your local or state health departments have labeled it as safe to drink.
If you're concerned about your water, you may sterilize it to kill germs. Here's how:
- pour cold tap water into a teapot or saucepan
- place pot on the stove over medium heat
- bring water to a rolling boil, and let boil for about a minute
- let the water cool until it's at room temperature
When should I prepare the bottles?
Some parents opt to make a bottle just before each feeding, but many others choose to pre-make and refrigerate enough to use for the day. If you know your baby eats every 3-4 hours, for instance, you can make six to eight bottles to last you all day.
