In practice, the immature digestive of the baby is not able to recognize some of the protein foods in order to manage, these pass into the bloodstream, resulting in the activation of mechanisms of self-defense of the organism and, consequently, the appearance of allergic symptoms.
What is the reason for the digestive tract may be immature or irritated, the answer is not simple and is associated with many factors, in addition to the young age, as a possible problematic intestinal flora of the mother that was inherited to the child, taking Î±Î½Ï„Î¹Î²Î¹ÏŽÏƒÎµÏ‰Î½ and drug administration to non-breast-fed the child etc.
When a mother comes face to face with the allergy don’t have to be nervous because it can have a very powerful weapon to effectively manage and this is breastfeeding.
Breast milk contains about 700 strains of probiotics that help balance of bacteria in the intestinal flora and healing the digestive system.
Also with the appropriate diet of the lactating mother feeds her baby with a milk 100% free from the proteins that irritate the digestive system.
In addition, because the allergic babies have a strong feeling of defense and usually do not accept easily the solid foods, breast milk provides all the essential nutrients and calories that the baby needs to grow until it is ready to accept solid food.
Unfortunately, the instructions given by specialists for the treatment of allergies are far from the support of a breastfeeding mother with a diet that will not tire and does not undermine breastfeeding.
Also, several experts do not evaluate correctly the symptoms and put a large percentage of mothers abstaining from the allergen-free foods to be sure that this is allergy.
The allergy symptoms include disturbances of the gastrointestinal system such as mucus in the stools, green stools, blood in the stools, GERD, diarrhea, constipation, colic, skin complaints such as rash, eczema, urticaria, persistent dry skin, rash, discomfort of the respiratory system such as wheezing, prolonged cold symptoms, nosebleeds, symptoms in the eyes such as red eyes, dark circles, continuous watering, nervous system symptoms such as insomnia, restlessness in sleep, prolonged drowsiness, and other symptoms such as constant ear infections, persistent hiccups, excessive sweating and salivation, stagnation of development.
If the mother notices a range of symptoms relating to the gastrointestinal system then it is possible for symptoms not caused by allergy but from other cases such as over-production of breast milk, decreased milk production, short frenum, etc.
If the mother notices and other symptoms than those listed above then it is likely to have the baby allergy to some food. On the basis of statistical data the first group of foods is implicated for possible allergy is dairy.
You just need to treat the allergy is to limit the breastfeeding mother, some specific foods from the diet. The instructions given can include a large limited feed from the diet of the mother or proposed interruption of breast-feeding and feeding with hypoallergenic milk.
If the mother informed a valid and timely on how to deal with allergy, you won’t get into pointless a diet, will not accept interruption of breast-feeding and with one abstention from a specific food group that will be able to successfully meet the allergy, recovering from the digestive tract of the child, and preparing to accept the food that until now, disturbed.
The ÏˆÎµÏ…Î´Î¿Î±Î»Î»ÎµÏÎ³Î¯ÎµÏ‚ are now more and more babies and children. But we must not frighten us and to get down on ourselves for how to deal with it.
With information on the benefits of breastfeeding and value of breast milk, a study on the proper treatment of allergies through diet and with the restoration of intestinal function, and support from people who have the knowledge and the will to guide us in all of this, the healing will come quickly and efficiently, and doing only what has been predestined and Nature to do, to breastfed the child.
