With an arrival of a newborn, our entire life revolves around the little baby and it took me down to my baby days when as a first-time parent I was learning something new every day. Healthy eating habits with proper digestion is one thing which is always there on every parent’s mind be it a newborn or your grown-up kid.
I remember with my son he used to have severe constipation and we tried almost every home remedy which sometimes worked well since he started with his childcare was on formula milk in his centre we had a terrible time because he had no appetite, vomit or stiff stomach. As a new parent sometimes figuring out the right reason is a bit tricky thing and it could be anything. It reminds me of habit which we all might have done whenever preparing milk for babies we end up shaking it so hard that it makes bubble which is another culprit for gassy baby.
Did You Know?
- Baby’s digestive system is still immature (small stomach, less digestive enzymes), so they cannot easily take in and break down over-processed foods
- Food is often processed with high heat and as a result, the natural structure of proteins gets damaged or destroyed. The same goes for milk formula. Once milk proteins are overheated, they may not be easily absorbed and may cause your child to suffer from protein indigestion and digestive discomfort.
- Friso has LockNutri Process Technology™ which uses mild heat treatment during milk processing, preserving milk proteins so it can be readily absorbed by your child.
- To ensure the survival of live bacteria, boiled water should be cooled down to below 40°C (warm water) before preparing milk formula.
- Milk shaken in a feeding bottle always produces bubbles, which disappear eventually. It’s best to swirl or lightly shake the bottle horizontally, not vertically. This reduces the production of air bubbles.
- If your child is constipated, you should not dilute the milk to ensure that he/she gets the maximum nutrients from it. It is better to feed your child extra water in between feeding times.
Since I know that my kids had this issue when they were babies so I have been inculcating the right habits to improve their digestion naturally by including
- Fibre-rich diet
- Vegetables/ salads
- Outdoor play which involves more physical exercise
- More fluids less sugar
- Limiting processed food
- Eat slowly and properly chewing their food
