Acid Reflux In Infant
Q: Infants often have a lot of threats of acid reflux. If they are born with acid reflux, they may have a lot of difficulties in their lives later. I am going to give birth to my first baby next month and I am trying to know something about the way to prevent my infant from acid reflux. Can anyone help me or give me some kinds of books that tell me about this please?
A:Seeking breastfeeding information can help a mother prepare for the arrival of her infant. Breastfeeding information is easy to obtain. The internet, library, local bookstore and nearest playground can all provide a wealth of breastfeeding information. Information about the benefits of breastfeeding for the nursing mother can greatly influence a woman's decision about breastfeeding. Breastfeeding mothers experience fewer complications after the delivery since the hormones released by the suckling of an infant helps a mother's uterus to contract. Breastfeeding mothers also burn more calories during lactation. They also require a higher caloric intake while nursing. Breastfeeding can help a mother shed those last few stubborn pounds following the delivery of the baby. Breastfeeding mothers bond quickly with their infants because of the frequent intimate contact between mother and child during feedings. The benefits of breastfeeding are evident in an infant as well. Breast fed infants are reported to have higher IQ's, have fewer digestion problems and have an intense bond with their mothers. Breast fed infants nurse more frequently than bottle fed babies since breast milk is digested more quickly. Breast fed infants with acid reflux or colic may also experience fewer symptoms while breastfeeding than when nursing a bottle. Baby websites can be a fun way to research breastfeeding information. Many of your favourite parenting and baby magazines also offer baby websites with discussion forums, chat rooms and message boards in addition to a wealth of breastfeeding information. Baby websites can also be a great way to meet other expectant parents who are considering breastfeeding.
