Doctor insights on:
Is Cold Breast Milk Bad
Yes: It's traditional to warm breast milk or formula before feeding it to a baby, but honestly there's no particular reason either can't be served cold. Babies might not take to it at first if they're used to the warm stuff, and I imagine warm milk is more like nursing, so maybe more comforting... But there's no crucial reason to warm the contents of a bottle.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Breast milk is very nutritious, and excellent for babies, so will be of no harm to adults (in small amounts). Breast milk is too rich, so will give an adult too much animal fat (yes, we are animals) and many extra calories. Most moms with excess breast milk just freeze it for use later when their babies are weaned off the breast, but surely some frozen milk gets wasted (thrown away).
Up to 8days32to39 F: You can keep up to 8 days at temp32to39 degree farenheit or 0to3.9 c for up to 2 weeks in freezer compartment inside the frodge and 6to12 months in a freezer that is self contained on top, bottom or side or the fridge and is kept at 0 degree f or --18 degree store the milk in back of the freezer and not in the door. To thaw the milk you can move in to fridge and it takes 24 hours to thaw;use sameday.
Can you make a cup of tea using breast milk? Would this be bad for adults to drink their own milk?
You can for tea but: No it is not healthy for adults as it is high in chlesterol and it is high in cholesterol as babies benefit from high cholesterol levels, that's why synthetic infant formulas are beginning to include fatty acids as well. But what is good for the babies is not good for adults. Secondly breast milk also is high in sugar which is lactose.
5 month old is sick with a cold and has completely lost interest in her baby food- is breast milk still enough to fill her up?
Yes: Exclusive breastfeeding can be done up until 6 months. I am sure she'll regain her interest once she is over the cold.
No: This is not true. Cold drinks and foods have no effect on quality or quantity of milk supply. Copious fluids help increase the milk supply. Congrats, Nico on the baby :)
During the breastfeeding, can I get a sunbathe? Will it have some bad influence on the breast milk or baby? Thanks.
Well....: Let's discuss two types of influence here, direct and indirect. In terms of direct influence to breast milk and baby from sunbathing, no there are no concerns. However, there is an indirect effect on baby of your sunbathing. You may not be around in the future to care for her if you get malignant melanoma or other deadly skin cancers! Congrats on doing a great job breastfeeding your baby!
How long after catching a cold does your body make antibodies so that thy can be passed through breast milk? I got a cold and don't want baby sick.
7 days: Is the expected time to make antibodies though you body is working on them as soon as you are sick. With good hand hygiene I do not feel you have to stay away from your child.See 1 more doctor answer
No should not effect: Cough /cold is usually a viral infection can be bacterial. Mom can continue to breast feed if properly treated.
Breast milk: No, not at all. At this point of your pregnancy, you will only have colostrum. Regular breast milk will start production after your baby is delivered. Frequent nursing will induce more milk production.
My breast are extremely sore from breast milk can running cold water on them help take away pain and swelling?
Yes: You can apply cold/ice packs to ease down the soreness/pain
Dry up milk: TO dry up milk production, put ice packs wrapped in towels on your breasts 15 minutes out of every hour while awake. Wear a very tight bra. Avoid hot showers. There are also prescription medications that can help dry you up - for these call your OB/GYN.
Yes you can: Apparently if you do it properly you can ship it. If frozen you can keep it frozen with dry ice or if you want it refrigerated use gel packs. Ship it overnight with one of the express carriers and make sure they are aware of the contents.See 1 more doctor answer
3 main plans: Some prefer a quick method, bind up with super sized ace wrap & or pre-pregnancy bra & stop all feeds. You are miserable for a while but it works. Some drop one feeding a day until their supply drops off. Some use the baby or a breast pump to soften the the breast when it gets painful but but only enough to release the pressure while supplementing baby for the rest of the feeding.
Great stuff!: Breast milk is the perfect food for babies: it has the right balance of fat, sugar, and protein, and it contains other nutrients like iron in small but very digestible amounts. The most unique and irreplaceable part of breast milk is immunity. Milk has antibodies, the tiny immune shields that protect against infections, and that vaccines will promote later in infancy and life.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: You can freeze your freshly pumped breastmilk for up to 3 months. It is best to keep it the back of your freezer to keep it very cold. Some report that if you have a separate deep freezer you may even keep it for longer.See 1 more doctor answer
