Resistance of children born by caesarean section and premature birth
Advanced medicine gradually makes cesarean section the preferred choice of many women for difficult births, but this method also brings some limitations compared to natural birth. If in a vaginal birth, the labor process allows the baby to be exposed to the beneficial bacteria environment in the mother’s vagina, thereby “awakening” the immune system including the good bacteria in the intestinal tract, then This did not occur in infants born by caesarean section. While babies born vaginally only need about 10 days to have a full count of good bacteria and perfect their immune systems, this process can take up to 6 months in babies born by caesarean section. Therefore, weak resistance makes C-section babies more susceptible to diseases, especially respiratory and digestive problems.
Meanwhile, premature birth is counted when the baby is born before 37 weeks of age. The more premature babies are born, the more health risks they face because the respiratory system, digestive system, vision, hearing… are still lacking. Many premature babies require antibiotics in their first weeks of life to prevent or treat serious infections. This in the long run damages the beneficial bacteria in the child’s gut, which is the physiological environment against pathogenic bacteria, and also aids in the digestion of nutrients.
The weak immune system makes it difficult for babies born by cesarean section or premature to achieve outstanding physical growth.
Ms. Hoai An (HCMC), the mother of a 2-year-old boy shared: “My baby was born by cesarean section at 38 weeks of pregnancy due to the breech position. At birth, babies have to temporarily drink formula in the first few days because breast milk comes in slowly. Whether it’s milk or solid food, the baby often vomits, so it looks so cute. This year, when she started going to school, she still had frequent colds and runny nose, which made me even more worried.”
Hoai An’s concern is also the common concern of many diaper mothers in the new normal period, when the children gradually return to school but are still not old enough to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
Strengthen resistance with colostrum supplement formula
A common condition in babies born by caesarean section, premature birth is the opportunity to have late access to breast milk, especially colostrum – a drop of “golden milk” for babies and only appears within the first 72 hours after birth. The main reason comes from the fact that babies born by caesarean section, premature babies often have to stay in neonatal intensive care for many hours, even days, months, or mothers have to take antibiotics to relieve pain, anesthetics, anesthetics … can slow down lactation.
Commenting on the value of colostrum, BS.CKI Tran Thi Minh Nguyet, Director of the Nutrition Research Institute of Ho Chi Minh City (NRI) said: “Colostrum is considered an absolutely safe vaccine, helping to improve children’s resistance thanks to its ingredients of IgG, lactoferrin, amino acids and enzymes. It also has 10 times more important nutrients than transitional and mature milk. Ideally, therefore, infants should receive colostrum directly from their mothers at birth.”
Having many disadvantages in exposure to colostrum from mothers, babies born by cesarean section, premature babies need to be more attentive in how to care for and choose nutritional products that supplement this important source of nutrients, in order to speed up the process. perfecting the immune system and achieving the required growth rate at a certain age, Dr. Nguyet advises.
Using formula milk to supplement colostrum is the solution chosen by many Vietnamese mothers to strengthen their babies’ resistance.
Accordingly, products from the Nutifood brand are especially interested by Vietnamese mothers.
