How to properly feed your baby’s milk is a problem that most young parents will encounter. In the process, many things will be wrong. Everyone knows that baby milk needs to be soaked with water.Will add a lot of water, so do babies who often feed milk need to feed the baby separately?

Do newborns need to drink water?
Too many novice mothers think that babies should already drink water when they drink milk powder, and they don’t need to add extra water. In fact, this idea is wrong. They must be fed with water every day after they drink milk powder.How about it?
What are the precautions for babies to drink water?

Next, let Xiaobian explain to each mother in detail.

How to feed infants with milk powder Generally, infants feed water between two milk formulas. They drink about 120-160 ml of water a day.

The main reason for feeding water is that more than 80% of the protein in milk is casein, which has a large molecular weight and is not easily digested. The content of lactose in milk is also less than that of breast milk, which can easily cause constipation in the baby.

And milk contains calcium and phosphorus and other minerals are relatively high, the baby’s kidneys have not yet matured, in order to allow too many minerals and protein metabolites to be replaced from the kidneys, sufficient water is also needed.

Baby drinking water precautions 1, drink less water before bedtime: newborn babies can not fully control urination after deep sleep at night.

If you drink too much water before going to bed, it is easy to wet the bed and affect the quality of sleep.

2. Eat less and eat more: The method of hydrating your baby should be correct, and you should often allow your baby to drink a certain amount of water, so as to “drink” and eat more frequently.

Don’t wait until your child is thirsty to think about hydrating your child, because when your child is thirsty, it means that the body’s water has lost its balance and the body’s cells have become dehydrated.

3, boiled water is the best hydration supplement: for babies, boiled water is the best hydration choice.

When the boiled boiled water is cooled to 20-25 ° C, the biological activity in the water changes, and it is very close to the characteristics of the cytosol in the body of the baby. It has a good affinity with the cells in the body, it is easier to penetrate the cell membrane into the cell, and promote metabolism.Improve infant immune function.

4.Control the daily intake at 10?
15%: Babies need to replenish about 10% of their body weight every day?
15%, so it is sufficient to control the daily water consumption within this range.

As each baby’s situation is different, the amount of water they need to drink will be different, but it should be noted that the more water the baby has, the better, and it is better to control it within a certain amount.

Finally, the editor reminds that when a baby is exclusively breastfed, because the breast milk contains a large amount of water, it is generally unnecessary to supplement the baby’s water.
