I heard that lying on the breast will make the baby otitis media? There are many risk factors for otitis media, including respiratory tract infection (cold), gastroesophageal reflux, artificial feeding, lying and drinking milk bottles, etc.Lying down and breastfeeding your baby has a relatively low risk of otitis media. If the baby is easy to cough or spit after eating, it is recommended to reduce lying down and burping after feeding. 1.Don't panic when drinking breast milk Breast milk contains tens of millions of nutrients. The most important thing is that breast milk contains antibodies, which give the baby resistance and help the baby to resist external bacteria.At the same time, the stimulation of breast milk to middle ear is far less than that of formula milk. The risk of otitis media is low for breastfed babies, regardless of their position. 2.Pay attention to formula But if the baby is drinking formula, and is used to lying down to drink milk, it is indeed easy to increase the risk of otitis media. Because baby's eustachian tube is not fully developed, compared with adults, it is shorter, narrower and straighter, and bacteria and viruses are easier to enter the middle ear.At the same time, the risk of bacterial contamination will inevitably exist in the formulation process. 3.How to reduce risk When the liquid enters the middle ear, it will bring bacteria into the eustachian tube, which will lead to swelling or blockage of the eustachian tube and cause infection.Moreover, the baby is easy to spit out milk, and the liquid repeatedly stimulates the eustachian tube, which further increases the risk of eustachian tube infection. Therefore, it is very important to burp after drinking milk, whether it is breast-feeding or formula milk. It is also necessary to master the correct feeding posture.When feeding the bottle, it is recommended that the mother hold the baby at a 45 degree angle and keep the bottle perpendicular to the baby's face to ensure that the bottle neck and the nipple are always full of milk. If the baby who can't speak often has inexplicable crying, fidgety performance, loss of appetite, difficulty in falling asleep, and often pulls the ear, or even secretion outflow from the ear canal, the baby is likely to have an ear infection.At this time, we must take the children to the hospital immediately.
