BA­BIES NEED FOR­MULA IN HOSPITAL, BE­FORE MOM’S MILK COMES IN

Your Pregnancy - - Pregnancy Files -

Breast­feed­ing in the first days is crit­i­cal in get­ting your fu­ture milk sup­ply go­ing. Not only that, but colostrum (the con­cen­trated “con­densed milk“type of milk), is full of an­ti­bod­ies and pro­tec­tive white blood cells. The small amount of vol­ume of this rich milk is per­fect for a new­born’s stom­ach, which is the size of a mar­ble at birth. Giv­ing for­mula is coun­ter­pro­duc­tive and can ac­tu­ally cause prob­lems. For­mula should only be given un­der doc­tors’ or­ders and strict su­per­vi­sion if the mother has the de­sire to breast­feed her baby.
