Problems in new born babies: diseases

Baby Health Add comments

Moms often discuss three problems in new born babies: lactase deficiency, disbacteriosis and milk seed for sterility on parenting forums in Internet. What do they mean?

Let`s start step by step.
Problems in new born babies. Lactase deficiency

According to special literature, diseases of carbohydrate exchange, connected with change
of ferments activity, decomposing sugars, including lactose, are met in
population VERY SELDOM. Countries give different data. Frequency of such
diseases varies from 1 to 20 000 up to 1 to 200 000 children. Well,
why podiatrists speak about lactase deficiency in every second baby? How could
humankind survive, if this disease, leading, for example, to oligotrophy while absence of treatment
and death, is found in most babies? Humankind could live till present time,
because real lactase deficiency, caused by genetics and connected with complete
absence or serious deficit of necessary ferments, is met very seldom.
Well, what
is met very often? What modern doctors have to face constantly? Lactase
deficiency, formed as a result of wrong organization of breastfeeding.
If a mom
breastfeeds her baby 6-7 times per day and night, “stores up” milk by feeding,
off milk after feedings, puts a baby firstly to one, then to other breast during
feeding - a chance of lactase deficiency development is very high. This is that
lactase deficiency, which development is caused by disbalance between “front”
and “back” portions of milk. This way a baby receives mainly “front” portion of
milk, more liquid, containing big quantity of lactose. Mainly “front” milk is
accumulated in breast between feedings, “back” milk, thick, fatter, is formed
mainly during nursing. If a mom puts a baby to other breast 5-10 minutes after
she starts feeding, he will also suck out front milk from it. Then mother will
off back milk. A baby will gain weight not very good, sometimes just little. He
can have liquid green foamy stool.
Mom will think she has bad milk, although
plenty of it.
situation may happen, if a baby restricts a baby in nursing, for example,
strictly during 15-20 minutes. A baby just does not manage to reach `back”
milk. And, besides, he stimulates breast for milk production insufficiently, if
he nurses
during 15-20 minutes 6-7 times per day and night. That`s why milk deficiency
will develop in situations, described above. When parents start giving formulas
to a baby, he will start growing fat, everybody will breath freely and decide
that milk can be bad and modern women have little milk in general.
also transit, temporary lactase deficiency. A baby has foamy stool during first
203 months lo life, but breastfeeding is organized the right way, weight gain
is ok, and baby`s health is good.
If a
mother tells a doctor about it, he send her for observation, and sugars will be
found in analysis. A baby will be switched to formula. However, incomplete
absorption of lactose is a usual thing for a breastfed baby!!! (66% of babies
in the age of 6 weeks and 60% of babies in the age of 3 months).
Let`s remember
that doctors dealt mainly with babies, fed with formulas, during last 50 years.
Thus, many knowledge and laboratory tests are suitable only for this group of
babies. Presence of sugar in stool of a baby, fed with formula, is pathology.
Presence of sugar in stool of a breastfed baby is normal! Significant quantity
of sugar can be a result of wrong recommendations on baby feeding (frequent
change of breast during feeding, restriction of nursing time, drawing off after
feeding), as a baby receives much front milk, rich in lactose.
Problems in new born babies. Lactase
deficiency and a newborn baby - is an unprecedented combination!!!
This state
is unusually popular.
As it is
known, a baby is born with sterile intestines. If since the moment of birth
nothing comes into his mouth, except mother`s nipple, then a baby`s alimentary
canal is sowed with normal micro flora. Colostrums and maternal milk contain
factors, contributing to growth of normal micro flora and neutralizing pathogenic
one. In case if breastfeeding was organized wrongly (and this is the most
popular case, unfortunately), if a baby starts receiving various liquids during
first day and night after birth, before he becomes acquainted with mother`s
micro flora, then occupancy of intestines passes not ideally at all. But even
in this case maternal milk will help to solve problems.
The most
interesting things happen when a baby is at home. Normal stool of a breastfed
baby is liquid, yellow, with white nubbins, takes place 7-10 times per 24 hours
in small quantities, or once in several days, but in big volumes. Most often
stool takes place 3-5 times per day, for babies of first months of life.
Podiatrists call such stool diarrhea and send a mother to pass analysis for disbacteriosis. (They don`t consider the fact that a baby has
right for disbacteriosis in his intestines
and any stool during first 6 months of life, especially if he is growing and
developing the right way). Then they start treatment, which main point is
switching a baby to sour milk formula. Podiatrists are not the ones to blame.
They are used to stool of a baby on formula - thicker and monotonous.
Even more
interesting situation takes place later, when, regardless of drinking of, for
example, various bio preparations, they continue finding inappropriate
microorganisms in a baby`s intestines. In this case a mother is told that her
milk is bad and she should stop breastfeeding.
Problems in new born babies. Milk seed for sterility
In 50-70% different microorganism are found, most often aurococcus и epidermal staphylococcus. Very often, when
they find these organisms, a mother is prescribed a course of treatment with
antibiotics, during this period a baby is fed with formulas, and then he
usually refuses from breastfeeding. This is the worst variant, but frequent
one. Or they start a mother`s and baby`s treatment with bio preparations.
presence of staphylococcus in milk means nothing for problems in new born babies! Both aurococcus and epidermal staphylococcus live on a human
skin, and also on most surrounding objects. Together with maternal milk a baby
receives specific antibodies, helping him to struggle with staphylococcus in
case of necessity.
It turns
out that maternal milk staphylococcus comes to a baby together with immunity
against it. It is safe for a baby! Moreover, a baby needs maternal staphylococcus
during first hours after birth. He will be protected from this staphylococcus
mother`s antibodies, which he will receive with colostrums and milk, and which
he already received through placenta! Whole maternal micro flora is known to a
baby`s immunity already, due to antibodies, coming to fetus through placenta.
If a baby receives hospital micro flora and staphylococcus, this is dangerous
for him. He does not know these microorganisms and if they occupy his skin and
alimentary canal, this will be dangerous for a baby. If a baby has no chance to
receive mother`s micro flora, he receives micro flora that surrounds him. If
“home” culture Staphyloccocus aureus has no opportunity to settle on a baby,
then hospital culture will take its place. But this is not dangerous for a
breastfed baby, as mother`s organism will help him through production of
appropriate antibodies. Of course, if a baby will receive breastfeeding.
Presence of staphylococcus in milk has no influence on its quality. Staphyloccocus enterocolitis, which mothers are
often frightened with,  - is a very rare
thing, which is met while diseases of immune system, and which appearance is
contributed by artificial feeding!
If a baby has weakened immunity for some reasons, he still will receive
significant support with maternal milk. When he is switched to artificial
feeding, he becomes deprived of this support.
Thus, if a breastfed baby gains little weight, has green, unstable stool, skin problems,
before switching him to artificial feeding, prescribe observation and
treatment, try to find out whether this baby`s breastfeeding is organized the
right way. Breastfeeding is a very simple process, even elementary. But! Only
in case, if a breastfeeding mom follows several simple rules and actions. These
rules and actions, related to maternal culture sphere, have been known and used
for thousand years. And now they are almost lost. Full-value breastfeeding
cannot take place, if you don`t know these rules.
If a mom breastfeeds a baby 6-7 times per 24 hours, uses dummy, gives him some tea or
water, draws off milk, does not feed him during night - she commits actions,
which are inappropriate for nature itself. If you act unnaturally, you cannot
establish natural process! If you put a baby to breast in a wrong manner, and nobody
notices it - this is very sad, as nature did not count that a woman, who
started breastfeeding, would not accumulate experience of observation other
breastfeeding women during her life, or that she would not have an experienced
mother, able to consult her, close by. Without correct apposition there won`t
be proper stimulation of breast for production of necessary quantities of milk,
even while frequent feedings, a baby with wrong apposition fails to extract
“back”, fat, thick milk from breast!

In such situation it`s necessary to teach mother and baby to correct
apposition to breast, arrange frequent feedings upon baby`s request, exclude
usage of other oral objects and supplemental drinking, arrange full-value night
feedings, reduce drawings off to zero, if you practice them. 2-4 weeks later
look at your baby. Artificial feeding, observation and treatment won`t be
necessary for your baby in 99% of cases.
