Because still weak, the baby’s health need to be maintained properly. Including cutlery, drinking, which should be free of germs.
Old parents often said, no need to wash tableware baby too clean. “I’ll even hurt!” Of course it’s not true. Conversely, we also often see mothers who are too “spirit of” taking care of baby food and beverage equipment. For example, boiled in boiling water to the point of bottles / glass, change shape, unable to bear the heat is too high. Wants, heck, I’ll totally sterile.
It is true, and drinking utensils should be well cared for babies. That is, must be free of germs. You see, the newborn is very susceptible to infection. Well as bacteria, parasites, or fungi. Cause, baby’s immune system has not been fully developed. “Because that person will be in contact with the baby, must be clean properly. So also when preparing baby food and drinks. Including, cleaning utensils, drinking,” said dr. Toto Hendrarto Vishnu, SpA, part of the Working Group Perinatologi, Hope Children’s Hospital and Maternity Kita, Jakarta.
The Immune System
A number of food and beverage equipment, press Toto, not even just be cleaned of dirt, but should be sterilized. “Especially if the mother does not give milk, but milk formula. Well, the bottle must be completely free of microorganisms.”
Generally bottle sterilization is necessary, especially in the first months of his birth. Once they grow, are generally immune from increased along with the given basic immunizations. In addition, the channel began to be given additional food cernanya ASI or PASI. The main purpose of sterilization equipment baby food and drink is to prevent the onset of diseases and disorders in the gastrointestinal tract.
In principle, insist that all food and beverage equipment in a sterile condition. But for eating utensils (plates, cups, spoons, etc.), not to be boiled up to 100 percent as well as sterile bottle. “Just rinse with hot water or dip briefly in boiling water,”
Actually, up Toto, all food by mouth was not 100 percent sterile. So is the situation in the infant gut. “Except in the first days of his birth.” Well, after getting milk or PASI, begin to grow colonies of bacteria that normally in the intestines. “Here, then, begins the immunities to the baby’s intestines. It is expected that after the age of 4 months, he has started strong and able to accept the challenges of germs or anything from the outside.”
Additional food before, increase endurance baby. “In other words, the inclusion of foods that are not 100 percent sterile, it can actually be considered as well as vaccination.” The better the process of transition from breast milk or PASI to food additives, the better the process of formation of germs in the intestines of the baby so his immune even better.
MUSHROOM BE EXCESS
Utensils should be the primary concern is the bottle of milk. Bottle sterilization should be done by the use of milk bottles can be rather long, so it is easy to contamination. This differs from the use of plates and other utensils, which are usually completed within 30-40 minutes of use.
“Indeed, if the equipment is not sterile food and beverage outlets, a baby can be attacked by bacteria and the resulting infection.” Generally, there are three factors underlying infection. Namely, the immune system, the number of germs, and germs ferociously. “But, although the number of germs and malignant while a lot of stamina is good, no infection will occur.”
What is clear, added Toto, something good is also not excessive. “If all the tableware is made sterile and germ-free, obviously not a process of stimulation or the colonization of bacteria in the gut. In fact, the germ is an ecosystem. If there is no bacteria in the gut, then the ecosystem is so unstable.”
The next result, the fungus grows excessively so unbalanced. “It can cause intestinal infections. What also must be understood, the formation of bacteria is also important for the formation of vitamin K which is useful as a blood clotting factor.”
INTERFERENCE AND HANDLING
Symptoms caused by infection in the gastrointestinal tract depends on its location. When it occurs in the upper intestine, the symptoms are vomiting. While in the lower intestine, the form of diarrhea symptoms. While if it occurs in the small intestine, mencretnya often, but the numbers a little and slimy. If the colon, mencretnya more fluid and more volume. “In general, symptoms of intestinal infection called vomiting. Medical term, gastroentritis or inflammation of the stomach and intestines.”
Diarrhea is a major disease caused by dysfunction of intestinal infection in the intestine can not absorb food properly. When intestinal damage on the surface, usually in addition to exit in the form of a liquid consistency, also accompanied by mucus. But if the damage to his intestines up some more, can bleed.
In the event of diarrhea, the most important thing is to maintain fluid balance. “The amount of fluid that enters the body, should be more than the amount spent.” As first aid, give ORS, Pedialyte, and others, to get medical help.
Dokterlah who will diagnose whether the disorder caused by infection or merely just an enzyme disorder. If due to infection, will be given medication for the infection. But if the enzyme disorder, a doctor may recommend a diet, such as lactose-free milk, eat lots of fiber, and high-protein meal alone.
Recovery depends on the immune, malignancy germs, and the number of germs. “If good endurance, healing will occur more quickly. If not good, then this will be sustained depends on the immune system and malignant germs
