Newborns drink water or breast milk first

It is recommended that parents give the baby breast milk first after the baby is born. In fact, many traditional beliefs believe that the reason for gargle for newborns is that the delivery room environment was quite poor in the past and the cleaning conditions were insufficient. At this time, the midwife would give the baby a sip of water to clean the mouth. With the improvement of modern medicine and the popularization of new delivery methods, babies are almost all born in clean and tidy delivery rooms. Naturally, there is no need to drink water to gargle. Therefore, the first bite that should be given to the baby is actually breast milk. It is recommended that the baby is born Start sucking breast milk within half an hour.

The benefits of early breastfeeding for babies

Breastfeeding for the first time is very important for both the mother and the baby. The main benefits of early breastfeeding for babies are as follows:

1. Early sucking can promote the secretion of prolactin on the mammary acini, make the breasts full, and can secrete milk in time.

2. Stimulating the nipple when the baby sucks can increase the mother's pituitary gland to secrete oxytocin, thereby strengthening the uterine contraction, assisting the delivery of the placenta, and reducing postpartum hemorrhage.

3. The mother's colostrum can stimulate the baby's bowel movements and promote the maturation of the intestinal mucosa.
