Jangan Goncang Susu Ibu dalam Botol

Ibu semua perasan tak bila letak susu yang dah dipam dalam peti sejuk dan selepas beberapa jam akan terbentuk dua lapisan. Di lapisan atas nampak cam pekat dan di bawahnya pula cair sedikit. Bila nak sediakan EBM, biasanya kita kena goyangkan botol perlahan-lahan supaya kedua-dua lapisan tu sebati. Tak boleh tau goncang kuat-kuat. Awal-awal saya berkecimpung dalam breastfeeding ni dulu pun tak tahu. Apa masalahnya kalau goncang susu ibu dalam botol? Ada kesan ke? Semoga entry ni merungkai persoalan ibu semua. 

Teknik Penyediaan EBM

Kenapa tak boleh goncang susu ibu dalam botol?

Saya kongsikan artikel daripada Linda J.Smith (IBCLC) iaitu lactation consultant yang bertauliah.

Because shaking expressed mothers’ milk (or boiling or freezing it) denatures the shaped molecules of the protective proteins, leaving only the pieces – the amino acids – the parts. Lactoferrin, lysozyme, and other protective components work their protection magic when they are in their original shaped molecular structure. Some components remain intact, even during freezing, shaking or heating. They not only protect the gut from many kinds of infection, but also prevent inflammation of the gut lining. Even broken up, the separate amino acids are still really good stuff and are digested by the baby as nutrients.

Imagine a set of pop-beads assembled into a necklace or bracelet. When the beads are acting as a bracelet or necklace, they are doing their job as protective elements. When you break apart the beads, you have in your hand many individual chunks of amino acids which are then digested. Cellular components are also susceptible to damage by physical stress. After all, they are living cells. With mother’s milk, you get at least two functions for the price of one. With manufactured formula, you only get the individual beads, never the necklace or bracelet. And never the living cells. So, please handle human milk gently, respectfully and kindly. It’s far more than perfect food for babies – it’s a living tissue and protective shield too.”

goncang susu ibu

Ya..susu ibu sangatlah bernilai! Susu ibu mengandungi tisu hidup..penuh dengan antibodi yang tidak ada pada susu formula. Jadi, tak payah goncang kuat-kuat. Memadailah dengan gelek-gelek manja je (swirl) bagi sebati. Jika ibu nak berikan yang terbaik buat bayi anda..Jangan lupa bagi tau pada semua orang yang terlibat seperti ayah, ibu dan babysitter dalam penyediaan EBM anak anda ye! 🙂
