Abbreviations and Terms

First, simple terms that do not require special explanation and do not cause fierce disputes: D - child, SS - joint sleep (mothers and children on the same bed), anniversary - first birthday of the child.

Now complex terms. We analyze them objectively, without attracting emotions and other mi-mi-mi as beliefs.

HB - breastfeeding. The World Health Organization recommends starting it in the first 60 minutes after the birth of a baby and feeding it exclusively with mother's milk for up to six months. Leading experts recommend introducing complementary foods no earlier than six months, while maintaining breastfeeding as long as possible - preferably up to two years.

Breast milk is ideal for the baby, because it contains a maximum of nutrients. Proteins, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and trace elements are necessary for full development and are found in breast milk in optimal proportions. Breast milk enhances the natural defense mechanisms of the baby’s body and is easily digested.

IV - artificial feeding: feeding a child with breast milk substitutes, mixtures.

There are a number of reasons that can prevent a mother from feeding her baby with milk. These are physiological causes: infectious diseases or psychological problems (stress, postpartum depression) of the mother, taking medications that are incompatible with breastfeeding, or a metabolic disorder in a child.

One of the most essential macro and micronutrients for humans is protein. This is a key factor in growth, development and human health. Proteins are composed of 21 amino acids, some of them are synthesized by the human body, while others enter the human body with nutrition. In the case of babies, together in breast milk or formula.

In breast milk, protein is found in the optimal amount - about 1 g per 100 ml. In a cow, for example, it is 3-4 times more. For a long time, manufacturers of mixtures could not achieve compliance with the quantity and quality of protein. But today on the market there are mixtures that are most adapted to the needs of children of different ages, including the protein content. In mixtures of the last generation, the amount of protein is slightly more than 1 g per 100 milliliters, which is almost identical to its content in mother's milk.They have also worked on the quality of the protein: today in the protein mixtures there are all the essential amino acids necessary for the harmonious growth and development of children.

SV - mixed feeding: the child eats both mother's milk and adapted mixtures. This option of feeding can be established, for example, when the mother needs to go to work or school, and constant pumping is impossible for some reason. Experts advise as long as possible not to stop breastfeeding and pick up the mixture, which in its composition, including the amount of protein, most closely match the mother's milk.

Who and when to listen to a young mother?

In recent decades, disputes to feed or not to breastfeed have flared up on all international and Russian open spaces of the Internet and on social networks. Young and especially inexperienced mothers are lost under the pressure of all parties: “for” and “against” do not like each other so much that it is difficult to understand the problem.

Leading experts and psychologists advise: if you want to feed, feed. It is really useful and necessary for the child.Find a doctor or breastfeeding specialist who will help you to set it up and explain how, when, what to eat and many other different nuances.

If for some reason you are not able to feed, also look for a specialist. He will help you understand the situation, if necessary, pick up the mixture and will monitor you and the child.

Look for objective information and, if possible, do not enter into discussions and disputes that will only spoil your mood. With information, it is always possible to make an adequate choice and not regret it.
