These are 5 Medical Reasons for MPASI Don t Be Given Before the Time There are always people who are interested in uploading citizens on social media. There are those who are afraid to make awe, but there are also many who make furious. Like an upload from one of the citizens who had viral a while ago on Facebook social media containing a video of a baby who was said to be still 2 months old but had been fed. Unmitigated, the baby who looks still very small is laid by the mother and stuffed with porridge is ready for MPASI. In fact, according to the WHO MPASI guidelines, the minimum age of MPASI is after even babies are 6 months old (5 months 30 days). So before reaching that age, without the strict supervision of a pediatrician, it is not advisable to give any intake other than breast milk or formula milk. Even water or bananas are not recommended for children under this age!

What made it even more sad was that there were still many comments that underestimated this and compared the habits of hereditary families who felt legitimate and fine giving food intake before age was ready for MPASI, which was 6 months. Duh! For you prospective mothers, so that you don't get mistaken and endanger your child's life, first read the facts about the dangers of early MPASI in children. Not only in vain, but also the high risk of life-threatening!

1. Like being given a tutorial on feeding babies, uploaded videos that were shared on Facebook social media some time ago made many citizens feel furious!

The uploads shared by one Facebook user who felt furious enough to represent many of the feelings of other mothers who considered the act of giving impromptu early MPASI to children could endanger the life of the child itself. There are enough similar cases that end in death. One of them is the case of children choking on bananas to death which happened to a 1-month-old baby named Zahir Putra Adela in Sukolilo in 2016, as reported by Detik daily. The practice of giving premature food is still widely practiced by citizens in Indonesia, with the first reason that when fed by their parents, they proved to be safe and did not experience health problems. Though it could be just a factor of luck, because the fact that giving early MPASI to children is not recommended by medical experts.

2. Giving early MPASI to children is not recommended because babies under 6 months still do not have the mechanism to swallow and digest food other than breast milk properly

As reported by The Asian Parent Indonesia, in addition to the mouth and tongue of a baby who is not ready to chew food as soft as anything, the intestine and digestive system of infants under 6 months of age have also not been able to digest solid food. Besides being able to make children choke because they still have reflexes sticking out their tongue and neck, they cannot stand on their own, early MPASI also risks making babies experience digestive problems such as intestinal infections, which causes babies to get intensive care and even lose their lives due to choking like the case above. p>

3. Let alone giving bananas, giving water or honey alone is quite risky. No kidding, the result is that the child can die only because of the parents' carelessness

Did you know, giving water to babies under 6 months without special medical reasons and strict supervision from doctors risk making babies experience malnutrition? Because drinking water can cause the baby's stomach to feel full which makes the desire to eat less, which interferes with the intake of breast milk. In addition, as reported by the Alodokter page, giving water to infants at risk for diarrhea and water poisoning. Well, in addition to white water, as reported from the Hello Sehat page, it turns out honey is very risky given to babies under one year because honey contains the spores of Clostridium botulinum bacteria which can cause botulism. The spores of the Clostridium botulinum bacteria that are ingested by the baby can then develop and multiply in the baby's intestines, and produce harmful poisons and cause botulism. If the baby is exposed to botulism, he will begin to show early symptoms, such as constipation or constipation, accompanied by lethargy and reduced appetite. Duh, don't get it!

4. Before giving MPASI, before the age of 6 months parents should also pay attention to the signs of readiness to get MPASI. Just eating food is not necessarily a sign that children are ready to eat, you!

According to medical experts, children have begun to be given MPASI after at least 6 months of age or according to the recommendations of the pediatrician who handles them. The signs of MPASI readiness for children as reported from the IDAI page (Indonesian Pediatric Association) are as follows: the head is upright and can sit, at least with the help of reflexes.

5. Whatever MPASI method will be done by you, future mothers, you should remember to always consult with a pediatrician

A wise mother won't just follow the trend, because each child certainly has a different approach. Do not let because the child of A is given MPASI with an A pattern, then the other mothers then impose a similar technique even though it could be that the child needs a different method. Remember, each child has a different pattern and growth so that the mother's sensitivity and wisdom is needed in giving the child MPASI. GTM child? Do not chase emotions and brand this child first, the name is also just learning to eat, so it's normal if we haven't been adults when we eat. Like it or not, it must be patient, diligent and diligent in digging up information from trusted sources, not from "he said" let alone dangerous hereditary science such as early MPASI without doctor supervision.

Everything has a time, just as MPASI will arrive in time, according to the age and development of the baby's ability that has increased. When the child is ready to eat, you can slowly introduce food with a level of texture that is slowly raised. Before a 6-month-old child is convinced that breastmilk from the mother is sufficient to fulfill all of her nutritional needs. Remember, a child crying or fussing does not just mean hungry! Hopefully this article can open up your insights and don't forget to share it too so that there are no more mothers who give early MPASI to their children without special medical reasons and supervision of pediatricians.
