At present, hepatitis B is very common in our life. Even if hepatitis B patients are pregnant, they can breastfeed. However, there are many precautions in the process of breastfeeding that need to be understood in advance. For mothers of hepatitis B, you may as well have a look.
Can mother of second liver breast feed
Mothers with hepatitis B can breastfeed. According to the research, the proportion of hepatitis B virus infection in breast-feeding and artificial feeding infants is similar. Even if the mother has "big three yang" and "small three yang", but the liver function is good, and the baby has been injected with hepatitis B immunoglobulin and hepatitis B vaccine within 24 hours of birth, breastfeeding is also more beneficial than harmful for the baby. For example, it is also feasible for the 'big three yang' mother to wash her hands and avoid feeding her baby mouth to mouth before breastfeeding. However, if the infant has ulcer in the mouth, it cannot be breastfed.
Hepatitis B is a worldwide disease caused by hepatitis B virus (HBV). The incidence of hepatitis B virus in developing countries is high. According to statistics, there are about 350 million HBsAg positive in the world, of which 120 million are in China. And in our country, nearly a quarter of hepatitis B is caused by mother to child transmission, so for a long time, it is generally believed that mothers of hepatitis B can not breastfeed their babies. However, we know that breast milk is the most ideal nutritional food and drink for infants. It contains all the nutrients required for the growth and development of infants from April to June, and is suitable for digestion and absorption of infants' intestines and stomach.
Precautions for mother of hepatitis B to breastfeed
1. The mother's serum viral load is high, and it is not suitable for breast milk when she is in the active stage of disease.
2. Because hepatitis B virus is mainly transmitted through blood, if there is damage or ulcer in the baby's mouth, throat, esophagus, gastrointestinal mucosa, etc., the hepatitis B virus in breast milk will enter the blood circulation and may induce hepatitis B virus infection.
3. Breast feeding should also be temporarily stopped for mother with nipple rupture.
4. Mothers who are receiving antiviral treatment with nucleoside analogues are unable to breast milk because the drugs can be excreted from the milk.
It should be pointed out that after all, HBV DNA positive mothers have virus replication in their bodies, so they should try to reduce the excessive contact with the baby's body. The washing and washing products and tableware used by mothers themselves should be disinfected frequently, and they should be absolutely isolated from the baby's products, so as to reduce the probability of infant infection.
Which conditions are not suitable for breastfeeding
1. When the mother has a serious infectious disease, she can't breastfeed to prevent it from infecting her baby. If mother suffers from hepatitis, pneumonia and other diseases, she must stop breastfeeding.
2. When mother has to take medicine for cold and fever, she can wait until the disease is cured and stop taking medicine. But we should pay attention to squeeze out the milk according to the feeding time every day to ensure that the milk is secreted more than 3 times every day. The extruded breast milk should not be fed to the baby, so as to avoid the adverse effects of the pharmaceutical ingredients on the baby.
3. Mothers with consumptive diseases, such as heart disease, kidney disease, and diabetes, can decide whether they can give milk according to the doctor's diagnosis. In general, mothers who can give birth can breastfeed, but more attention should be paid to nutrition and rest. According to the physical conditions, the time of breastfeeding should be shortened appropriately, and it is better to stick to the baby four months later.
4. When mother suffers from serious diseases such as chapped nipple and mastitis, breast feeding should be suspended and treated in time to avoid aggravating the condition. But you can squeeze out the breast milk, feed the baby with a dropper or spoon, and try not to use a bottle as much as possible to avoid the illusion of the baby's nipple. You can also try a bionic nipple made by imitating the shape of the mother's nipple. If the baby can use the nipple to feed, it will not reject the breast milk, which is the most reasonable idea.
