Although my baby's born more earlier, but all my baby's condition was healthy, no symptoms of disease or abnormality. Due my baby's have very small body, his weight was an average of 2 kilogram. I am very sad to see my baby's with small body size and weight. But there is a feeling very happy because my baby is safely.
During care of premature babies, there is special treatment in providing nutrition or milk. The first week of birth, my baby can't breastfeed directly to my breast, so that should give special premature baby formula milk in a week.
Here are my tips when caring for premature babies, up to age one month:
- Within first week, give infant formula that is recommended by pediatricians, so the baby can drink with milk nutrition without going through at mother's breast.
- During the week, squeeze the milk from mother breast, with this, mother will not feel sick at breast.
- Give baby's with mother's milk mixed by formula milk, so that the baby will be stronger body resistance.
- After the baby is able to breastfeed directly at mother's breast, as is usually done with giving milk and special milk mixture premature infant formula.
