Milk by itselfdoes not contain all the nutrients of breast milk or formula and should never be used as a substitute until after 1 year of age. The cooking of the food that contains the milk will aid in breaking down the milk proteins so that many babies who are 8 months+ are able to have baked goods that contain milk.
Pernah dengar tak tentang susu gantian? Setiap baby yang lahir ke dunia ni, Adaa yakin pasti ibunya nak bagi susu yang terbaik kan. Tapi ada sesetengah kes, si ibu tak dpt nak memberikan susu ibu walaupun bermacam usaha telah dilakukan..huhu bagi yang susu nya meriah tu Alhamdulillah kan, murah rezeki anak kecil tuh, tapi bagi yang kurang susu atau bermasalah ni mcm mana pulak? Takkan taknak bg susu kan? Sian baby..jadi apa pilihan yang kita ade? Susu formula? Susu kambing? Susu segar?
Ada sesetengah ibu yang sgt anti pada formula milk. Kalo Adaa, sah2 lah tak anti sbb Adam (my first hero) mmg tak dpt merasa langsung susu ibu dan dari kecik2 lagi dah diberi formula milk. Tapi bukan dengan sengaja ye, mmg susu takde due to certain reasons. But realizing the greatness of breastmilk, of course lah kita berazam nk susukan anak seterusnya tanpa FM kan..so bagi Adaa..selagi boleh usaha, Adaa buat..tapi kalo dah tak termampu, Adaa bg jugak formula milk..Jangan lah pula sbb pro-bf smp anti-fm dan lebih sanggup top up susu anak dengan milo/air glucose dan sebagainya..be logical, give the best for ur baby. Lagi satu don’t be mean to those who gives substitution milk for their baby ok.
Anyway, bagi ibu yang mengalami pengalaman yang sama mcm Adaa, dah tentu nak tahu susu apa yang sesuai untuk baby yg bawah setahun ni?
Infant formula is a modern artificial substitute for human breast milk. Formulas are designed for infant consumption, and are usually based on either cow milk or soy milk. Use of infant formula has been decreasing in industrial countries for over forty years as a result of antenatal education, increased understanding of the risks of infant formula, and social activism. Most major medical and health organizations strongly advocate breastfeeding over the use of infant formula.
Besides breast milk, infant formula is the only other infant milk which the medical community considers nutritionally acceptable for infants under the age of one year. Cow’s milk is not recommended because of its high protein and electrolyte (salt) content which may put a strain on an infant’s immature kidneys. Evaporated milk, although perhaps easier to digest due to the processing of the protein, is still nutritionally inadequate.
how about freshmilk?
One of the main reasons you should wait until after baby is 1 year old to introduce milk as a formula/breast milk replacement is that milk/dairy hinders the absorption of iron in the body. Milk is also much harder for baby to digest than breast milk or infant formula.
As noted on our solid food chart for the 4-6 month old baby, we indicate that dairy should not replace breast milk or formula until a baby is 12 months of age. There is a possibility of serious health risks should breast milk and/or formula be replaced with cow milk, particularly at the 4-6 month age range.
These risks include Iron Deficient Anemia. Cow milk hinders the absorption of Iron and can cause anemia. Iron is crucial for baby’s healthy development. Besides the risk of iron deficient anemia, if your baby drinks cow milk to replace breast milk and/or formula, baby will not receive enough Vitamin E or enough EFAs (essential fatty acids). These nutrients are also crucial to healthy growth and development.
Your baby would also receive levels of protein and sodium that would be too high for baby’s fragile system to handle. Cow milk protein is very difficult for an infant to digest and absorb. While formula may be cow milk based, the proteins are “pre-digested” and cultured in a way that make baby’s tummy better able to tolerate them. Believe it or not, the levels of sodium (and potassium) in cow milk are very high. Too much sodium might cause an infant’s kidneys to fail and as we know, high levels of sodium can lead to high blood pressure.
These are a few of the reasons why the AAP and other pediatric authorities do not want babies to drink milk as a replacement until 12 months of age. As you know, breast milk is the most perfect food for infants and babies could survive on breast milk alone for the first 12 months. Formula, while not nature’s perfect food like breast milk, has been created with the crucial and essential nutrients that an infant needs to grow healthy and maintain a proper nutritional status. Whole cow milk does not provide for the good health and growth of babies.
Kesimpulannya jika dah btol2 tak dpt nk susukan anak bawah 1 tahun, silalah bg formula and not freshmilk or yogurt or cheese ye..Usahalah selagi terdaya untuk beri yang terbaik, tapi jgn pula terlalu ‘down’ jika gagal..mana tau next baby Allah murahkan rezeki dengan susu ibu yang melimpah ruah 🙂
