sharing is caring giteww..

sepanjang aku berhibernasi selama dua bulan ni..bukan aper..byk ilmu yg aku dok kutip dlm blog2 dan website2 (selain ilmu menyoping x hengat dlm store online) org lain..terutamanya tentang info utk menyusukan bayi secara eksklusif..EBF (exclusive breastfeed) kata omputehnye..

akak mengakulah diknon oii..walaupun dah beranak 3 ni..ilmu pasal ebf ni sgtlah cetek..mana taknya 10 thn lps mana ada byk sgt info pasal ebf utk rakyat mesia ni kan..cuma baru2 ni jer bila kempen susu ibu dipertingkatkan lagi kat sini barulah byk kedai2 online yg menjual kelengkapan gajet2 ebf ni kuar..dan ramai juga ibu2 muda buat blog khas utk ceritakan pengalaman mereka meng ebfkan (suka suki jer buat ayat sendiri) baby diorg tu..akak pon layanss la blog2 tu..

ni nak share..masa google2 last week..terjumpa ler website ni..oohh..sgt informatif gituu..tajuk dlm bahasa melayu nyer Mitos Susu Ibu haa gitulahh lebih kureng..jom kita tgk antara mitos2 yg selalu sgt kita dengar terutama dr org tua2..alaa zaman2 mak2 kita dulu beranak ler..kenapa diorg ni lebih percayakan susu formula dari susu ibu sendiri..

kesemua mitos yg disenaraikan ada 54 perkara..tapi aku amek sket je la yer..yg lain korang baca sendiri ;-) antara mitos2 pemes itu ialah :

1. Many women do not produce enough milk. Not true!

The vast majority of women produce more than enough milk. Indeed, an overabundance of milk is common. Most babies that gain too slowly, or lose weight, do so not because the mother does not have enough milk, but because the baby does not get the milk that the mother has. The usual reason that the baby does not get the milk that is available is that he is poorly latched onto the breast. This is why it is so important that the mother be shown, on the first day, how to latch a baby on properly, by someone who knows what she is doing.


ramai yg beranggapan susu mereka tidak cukup utk baby..termasuklah saya masa mula2 melahirkan arash dulu..sampai anak yg ketiga ni pon asyik pk menda yg sama..kerana aper..sbb mungkin ada antara ibu2 yg dijaga oleh ibu mereka..seringkali kedengaran ayat "susu ko x cukup tu gi beli susu tin laa..sian baby tuu..nangis jer" padahal mungkin teknik penyusuan tu salah..bak kata ayat di atas tu ;)
sesungguhnya setiap susu ibu yg melahirkan itu adalah cukup utk keperluan anak mereka..jadi tutupkan aja telinga pabila mendengar suara2 sumbang yg mengatakan susu ibu tidak cukup utk baby kita..

2. There is no (not enough) milk during the first 3 or 4 days after birth. Not true!

It often seems like that because the baby is not latched on properly and therefore is unable to get the milk. Once the mother’s milk is abundant, a baby can latch on poorly and still may get plenty of milk. However, during the first few days, the baby who is latched on poorly cannot get milk. This accounts for “but he’s been on the breast for 2 hours and is still hungry when I take him off”. By not latching on well, the baby is unable to get the mother’s first milk, called colostrum. Anyone who suggests you pump your milk to know how much colostrum there is, does not understand breastfeeding, and should be politely ignored.


pernah x kita dgr org tua2 soh buang dulu susu yg mula2 kuar yg dikatakan itu susu basi..mereka mungkin krg ilmu..padahal itu adalah kolestrum yg amat penting utk baby..aper pun seperti yg perkara 1 tadi..cara menyusukan baby dgn betol amatlah penting utk pastikan baby benar2 menyusu..cara2nya nantilah akak buat n3 lain yer ;-)


3. A baby should be on the breast 20 (10, 15, 7.6) minutes on each side. Not true!

However, a distinction needs to be made between “being on the breast” and “breastfeeding”. If a baby is actually drinking for most of 15-20 minutes on the first side, he may not want to take the second side at all. If he drinks only a minute on the first side, and then nibbles or sleeps, and does the same on the other, no amount of time will be enough. The baby will breastfeed better and longer if he is latched on properly. He can also be helped to breastfeed longer if the mother compresses the breast to keep the flow of milk going, once he no longer swallows on his own (Breast Compression). Thus it is obvious that the rule of thumb that “the baby gets 90% of the milk in the breast in the first 10 minutes” is equally hopelessly wrong.


ni lagi satu mitosnya..sapa ckp baby MESTI menyusu selama waktu tertentu..di setiap B kita tu..klu betol caranya sekejap jer baby dah kenyang kan..


4. A mother should wash her nipples each time before feeding the baby. Not true!

Formula feeding requires careful attention to cleanliness because formula not only does not protect the baby against infection, but also is actually a good breeding ground for bacteria and can also be easily contaminated. On the other hand, breastmilk protects the baby against infection. Washing nipples before each feeding makes breastfeeding unnecessarily complicated and washes away protective oils from the nipple.


jgn sekali2 basuh nipples kita sebelum menyusukan anak yer puan2..susu ibu itu sendiri mempunyai anti bakteria yg melindungi baby dr sebarang jangkitan.


5. Pumping is a good way of knowing how much milk the mother has. Not true!

How much milk can be pumped depends on many factors, including the mother’s stress level. The baby who nurses well can get much more milk than his mother can pump. Pumping only tells you have much you can pump.


betol3x..kita xbleh stress2 kalau nak menyusukan/mengepam susu..nnt susu sikit jer kuar ;-) yg ni memerlukan kekuatan mental..ibu2 yg menyusukan kena selalu relax2kan minda..xleh tensi2..


6. It is easier to bottle feed than to breastfeed. Not true!

Or, this should not be true. However, breastfeeding is made difficult because women often do not receive the help they should to get started properly. A poor start can indeed make breastfeeding difficult. But a poor start can also be overcome. Breastfeeding is often more difficult at first, due to a poor start, but usually becomes easier later.


bak kata pepatah melayu "hendak seribu daya..xnak seribu dalih" x gitu deknonn ;-)


7. Women with small breasts produce less milk than those with large breasts.

Nonsense!


setujuuuuuuuuuuu sgt2 kerana ramai juga kwn2ku yg mempunyai B yg kecil tapi produce susu..fuhhh..mabeless wa cakap lu hehe..


8. Modern formulas are almost the same as breastmilk. Not true!

The same claim was made in 1900 and before. Modern formulas are only superficially similar to breastmilk. Every correction of a deficiency in formulas is advertised as an advance. Fundamentally formulas are inexact copies based on outdated and incomplete knowledge of what breastmilk is. Formulas contain no antibodies, no living cells, no enzymes, no hormones. They contain much more aluminum, manganese, cadmium and iron than breastmilk. They contain significantly more protein than breastmilk. The proteins and fats are fundamentally different from those in breastmilk. Formulas do not vary from the beginning of the feed to the end of the feed, or from day 1 to day 7 to day 30, or from woman to woman, or from baby to baby. Your breastmilk is made as required to suit your baby. Formulas are made to suit every baby, and thus no baby. Formulas succeed only at making babies grow well, usually, but there is more to breastfeeding than getting the baby to grow quickly.


pernah terbaca dlm blog bf mommies yg lain..susu formula merupakan susu ke empat terbaik..selepas susu ibu, susu ibu yg dibekukan, susu ibu susuan..aper yg penting skrg yer puan2 kita cubalah sebaik mungkin menyusukan anak sebelum mengambil keputusan memberikan susu formula..jgn terus lemah semangat sekiranya tgk susu kita spt tidak cukup..atau menyusukan baby yg punyai masalah (jap gi kita tgk) itu semua psikologi jer..klu kita kuat berkehendakkan anak kita minum susu kita sahaja..berdoalah setelah segala usaha telah dilakukan..jgn terus menyerah kalah..


saya sgt2 menyesal tidak ebf kedua anak saya dulu kerana kurangnya ilmu dan sokongan...arash sampai 3 bln jer..adelia sampai 5 bln..itupun dah campur2 ngan susu formula :(


9. If the mother has an infection she should stop breastfeeding. Not true!

With very, very few exceptions, the mother’s continuing to breastfeed will protect the baby. By the time the mother has fever (or cough, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, etc) she has already given the baby the infection, since she has been infectious for several days before she even knew she was sick. The baby’s best protection against getting the infection is for the mother to continue breastfeeding. If the baby does get sick, he will be less sick if the mother continues breastfeeding. Besides, maybe it was the baby who gave the infection to the mother, but the baby did not show signs of illness because he was breastfeeding. Also, breast infections, including breast abscess, though painful, are not reasons to stop breastfeeding. Indeed, the infection is likely to settle more quickly if the mother continues breastfeeding on the affected side.


jadiii teruslah menyusukan bayi anda walaupun tgh demam!!


10. Premature babies need to learn to take bottles before they can start breastfeeding. Not true!

Premature babies are less stressed by breastfeeding than by bottle feeding. A baby as small as 1200 grams and even smaller can start at the breast as soon as he is stable, though he may not latch on for several weeks. Still, he is learning and he is being held which is important for his wellbeing and his mother’s. Actually, weight or gestational age do not matter as much as the baby’s readiness to suck, as determined by his making sucking movements. There is no more reason to give bottles to premature babies than to full term babies. When supplementation is truly required there are ways to supplement without using artificial nipples.


sapa cakap baby premature tidak boleh diberikan susu ibu?? adalah kaedah2 nyer utk menyusukan baby tidak cukup bln ni..nnt2 kita kupas yer..


11. If the mother is taking medicine she should not breastfeed. Not true!

There are very very few medicines that a mother cannot take safely while breastfeeding. A very small amount of most medicines appears in the milk, but usually in such small quantities that there is no concern. If a medicine is truly of concern, there are usually equally effective, alternative medicines that are safe. The loss of benefit of breastfeeding for both the mother and the baby must be taken into account when weighing if breastfeeding should be continued.


jgn takut utk menyusukan baby sekiranya kita mengambil ubat2an yer puan2 (eh mcm rancangan masakan plak dah)


12. A breastfeeding mother has to drink lots of fluids. Not true!

The mother should drink according to her thirst. Some mothers feel they are thirsty all the time, but many others do not drink more than usual. The mother’s body knows if she needs more fluids, and tells her by making her feel thirsty. Do not believe that you have to drink at least a certain number of glasses a day. Rules about drinking just make breastfeeding unnecessarily complicated.


laaaa..mitos rupe2nye niii...tapi saya mmg tergolong dgn org yg kuat minum air ;)


13. A breastfeeding mother has to eat more in order to make enough milk. Not true!

Women on even very low calorie diets usually make enough milk, at least until the mother’s calorie intake becomes critically low for a prolonged period of time. Generally, the baby will get what he needs. Some women worry that if they eat poorly for a few days this also will affect their milk. There is no need for concern. Such variations will not affect milk supply or quality. It is commonly said that women need to eat 500 extra calories a day in order to breastfeed. This is not true. Some women do eat more when they breastfeed, but others do not, and some even eat less, without any harm done to the mother or baby or the milk supply. The mother should eat a balanced diet dictated by her appetite. Rules about eating just make breastfeeding unnecessarily complicated


uisshh..pandai2 jer ckp soh makan byk2 klu bf baby ni kan..(tujukan khas utk diri sendiri yg kuat mkn ni :p)


14. A mother who bleeds from her nipples should not breastfeed. Not true!

Though blood makes the baby spit up more, and the blood may even show up in his bowel movements, this is not a reason to stop breastfeeding the baby. Nipples that are painful and bleeding are not worse than nipples that are painful and not bleeding. It is the pain the mother is having that is the problem. This nipple pain can often be helped considerably. Get help. (Sore Nipples). Sometimes mothers have bleeding from the nipples that is obviously coming from inside the breast and is not usually associated with pain. This often occurs in the first few days after birth and settles within a few days. The mother should breastfeed! If bleeding does not stop soon, the source of the problem needs to be investigated, but the mother should keep breastfeeding.

inilah ujian kita sewaktu menyusukan anak..teruskan penyusuan yer jgn risau..sekejap aja masalah ni biasanya..

15. Babies with cleft lip and/or palate cannot breastfeed. Not true!

Some do very well. Babies with a cleft lip only usually manage fine. But many babies with cleft palate do indeed find it impossible to latch on. There is no doubt, however, that if breastfeeding is not tried, it will not work. The baby’s ability to breastfeed does not always seem to depend on the severity of the cleft. Breastfeeding should be started, as much as possible, using the principles of proper establishment of breastfeeding. (Breastfeeding—Starting Out Right). If bottles are given, they will undermine the baby’s ability to breastfeed. If the baby needs to be fed, but is not latching on, a cup can and should be used in preference to a bottle. Finger feeding occasionally is successful in babies with cleft lip/palate, but not usually.


nampakkan..hatta bayi yg bermasalah seperti bibir sumbing ni pon harus diberikan susu ibu dgn mnggunakan teknik2 tertentu...jadi perlukah kita memberikan pelbagai alasan lagi..


16. There is no such thing as nipple confusion. Not true!

A baby who is only bottle fed for the first two weeks of life, for example, will usually refuse to take the breast, even if the mother has an abundant supply. A baby who has had only the breast for 3 or 4 months is unlikely to take the bottle. Some babies prefer the right or left breast to the other. Bottle-fed babies often prefer one artificial nipple to another. So there is such a thing as preferring one nipple to another. The only question is how quickly it can occur. Given the right set of circumstances, the preference can occur after one or two bottles. The baby having difficulties latching on may never have had an artificial nipple, but the introduction of an artificial nipple rarely improves the situation, and often makes it much worse. Note that many who say there is no such thing as nipple confusion also advise the mother to start a bottle early so that the baby will not refuse it.


laa..ni lg satu mitos rupak2nya..tapi hakikatnya ada juga baby yg payah nak terima bottle nipple ni..kenalah ajar awal2 lagi..alhamdulillah..bayi saya tidak mempunyai masalah ini..tidak cerewet la kiranya..


17. Women with flat or inverted nipples cannot breastfeed. Not true!

Babies do not breastfeed on nipples, they breastfeed on the breast. Though it may be easier for a baby to latch on to a breast with a prominent nipple, it is not necessary for nipples to stick out. A proper start will usually prevent problems and mothers with any shaped nipples can breastfeed perfectly adequately. In the past, a nipple shield was frequently suggested to get the baby to take the breast. This gadget should not be used, especially in the first few days! Though it may seem a solution, its use often result in poor feeding and severe weight loss, and makes it even more difficult to get the baby to take the breast. If the baby does not take the breast at first, with proper help, he will often take the breast later. Breasts also change in the first few weeks, and as long as the mother maintains a good milk supply, the baby will usually latch on, sooner or later.


ingat tuu..baby bukan menyusu kat nipple kita sebaliknya pada B..pastikan anak anda menyusu dengan lekapan yg betol (proper latch)


18. A woman who becomes pregnant must stop breastfeeding Not true!

If the mother and child desire, breastfeeding can continue. There are women who continue nursing the older child even after delivery of the new baby. Many women do decide to stop nursing when they become pregnant because their nipples are sore, or for other reasons, but there is no rush nor medical necessity to do so. In fact, there are often good reasons to continue. The milk supply may decrease during pregnancy, but if the baby is taking other foods, this is not a problem.


mitos betol eh..saya ada kawan yg bfkan baby dia sampai usia 6 thn..percaya x..percayalaahhh..;-)


19. Breastfeeding in public is not decent. Not true!

It is the humiliation and harassment of mothers who are nursing their babies that is not decent. Women who are trying to do the best for their babies should not be forced by other people’s lack of understanding to stay home or feed their babies in public washrooms. Those who are offended need only avert their eyes. Children will not be damaged psychologically by seeing a women breastfeeding. On the contrary, they might learn something important, beautiful and fascinating. They might even learn that breasts are not only for selling beer. Other women who have left their babies at home to be bottle fed when they went out might be encouraged to bring the baby with them the next time.


jgn malu2 yer kawan2..zaman skrg dah mudah..ada nursing cover..beli aja lah..kat mana2 pon kita leh bf kan baby tu..in fact skrg klu nampak ibu2 yg susukan kat mall rasa sgtlah bangganya kan kan ;)


20.Breastfeeding is blamed for everything. True!

  • Family, health professionals, neighbors, friends and taxi drivers will blame breastfeeding if the mother is tired, nervous, weepy, sick, has pain in her knees, has difficulty sleeping, is always sleepy, feels dizzy, is anemic, has a relapse of her arthritis (migraines, or any chronic problem) complains of hair loss, change of vision, ringing in the ears or itchy skin.
  • Breastfeeding will be blamed as the cause of marriage problems and the other children acting up.
  • Breastfeeding is to blame when the mortgage rates go up and the economy is faltering.
  • And whenever there is something that does not fit the “picture book” life, the mother will be advised by everyone that it will be better if she stops breastfeeding.

yang terakhirnya sgt2 lah betolnyer..mmg masih ramai lg yg menganggap menyusukan baby ni penyebab pelbagai masalah lain spt yg disebutkan di atas..tapi ingatlah wahai ibu2 penyayang sekalian..nikmat yang akan kita kecapi di akhirat nnt kerna menyusukan anak seperti yg disyariatkan oleh Allah.. tidak terhingga nilainya..


dan byk lagilah mitos lain..anda bolehlah membacanya di mamababyworld ni yer..

mmg sgt banyak cabaran dlm melaksanakan ebf ini..saya sendiri mempunyai cabaran dari anak pertama lagi...antara cabarannya apabila kita seringkali mendengar mitos2 yg disebutkan di atas tadi..apabila byk ilmu yg kita kutip..menguatkan lagi semangat saya utk menyusukan anak ketiga secara eksklusif..tidak perlu lagi merasa malu menyusukan anak di khalayak ramai..malah rasa bangga (ingat ini bkn tujuan utk riak) krn berjaya melaksanakan tuntutan Islam..

ketika ebf juga..kita amat2 memerlukan sokongan ahli keluarga terdekat terutama suami, ibu, ayah, adik beradik dll..sekiranya tiada sokongan inilah menyebabkan usaha utk ebf terbantut..tapi xpe..yg penting skrg ibu2, marilah kita kuatkan mental dan fizikal dgn berfikiran positif selalu..usaha sedaya upaya sekurang2nya dapat menyusukan anak sehingga 2 tahun...di samping sentiasalah berdoa kepada Allah agar diperbanyakkan susu kita..insyaAllah..

nak petua banyakkan susu tak..emm..yg tu n3 lain yerrr..dah ponek eden mengarang ni..skrg bersemangat nak wat n3 at least sehari sekali..kunun2nyaa
