Overfeeding means giving your baby more nutrients and energy than the baby normally needs to metabolize. The baby is "bigger" than the baby of the same age. Overfeeding has many drawbacks, and obesity is not equal to health!


Overfeeding can cause the following issues

1. Digestive malabsorption

All organs of the baby are in a stage of growth and development, and they are very immature and have limited mobility. Over-feeding, premature addition of complementary foods, and excessive addition of complementary foods can increase the burden of digestive organs and cause poor digestion and absorption.

2. Easy brain fatigue, causing premature aging of the brain

For digestive food, the digestive tract must expand, and limited blood and oxygen are transferred from the head to the digestive tract. Brain cells will be temporarily ischemic, so the more you eat, the more blood you need in your stomach and intestines, the less blood you have in your brain, and the more harmful it is to your brain. The study found that premature aging substances can increase tens of thousands of times after eating and drinking, which is easy to cause obesity, and even affect the development of the brain, and the intelligence is low.

3. Increase the risk of childhood obesity

Overfeeding in infancy increases the risk of childhood obesity (5-6 years).

4. Other non-communicable diseases

Excessive feeding increases the risk of other non-communicable diseases such as hypertension, non-insulin-dependent diabetes, and crown Heart disease, stroke, etc. Although this effect does not appear in the early stages of life, it has already buried hidden dangers to health.


To avoid overfeeding, parents must learn how to judge their baby's fullness

1.See baby weight & height growth rate

A baby of 0-3 months, the monthly weight gain reaches 1 kg, and the height growth reaches about 4 cm, which means that the baby is basically full. For example, if the weight gain is less than 1 kg when the baby is checked for 42 days, it means that the breast milk may not be enough, milk powder may need to be added, or the feeding method may be wrong, and doctor's guidance is required. If your weight gains too fast, you may be feeding more.

2.Observing your baby’s reaction when you are breastfeeding

When your baby is sucking, he will cry out and then suck hard. After a while, I can't breathe and cry, cry and want to eat again, always reluctant to let go of the nipple. When the baby is sucking, the other breast of the mother does not produce milk, which means that the breast milk is not enough.

If your baby just sucks and doesn't make a swallowing sound, or sucks a lot of mouths and swallows it once, it means that my mother's milk is not a lot.

3.See your baby’s reaction after breastfeeding

If your baby can sleep for more than 3 hours after breastfeeding, it will not be until the next time you eat milk. Crying, this means that he has eaten enough. If the baby refuses to let go of the mother's nipple for a long time, or sucks it for a while and spits out the nipple, and the weight gain is slow, it means that there is no fullness.

4.See baby's bowel movements

In general, the baby is wet (wet) more than 6 diapers per day, indicating that the amount of breast milk is sufficient The baby is full.

5.See your baby's skin color

See if your baby's skin is healthy, if your skin and muscles are elastic, and if everything is normal, then your baby will eat. Very full and very good!


To prevent over-feeding, you need to pay attention to the following aspects:

1, a few days before your child is born Mother's colostrum is very small, especially for caesarean section mothers who need to wait 1-2 days for milk. Moms don't have to worry about children being hungry and blindly adding formula. In fact, newborns have a rich energy reserve and blood sugar maintenance ability at birth, as long as the weight loss is less than 7%, the risk of hypoglycemia is very low, and mothers can insist on waiting for milk secretion.

2, must be adjusted according to the proportion of milk powder, 1 scoop of milk powder refers to 1 flat spoon instead of tip.

3, once the milk is not finished, mothers should not do everything possible to let the children drink the remaining milk.

4, do not add food supplements too early, no special circumstances, to be 6 months old (180 days of birth) and then add complementary food.

5, must allow children to have more activities, activities are to consume energy.

If your baby takes more long-term intake but does not affect gastrointestinal function, it may lead to excess energy. . Nutritional or paediatricians often see overweight or obese infants. After dietary analysis, it is found that the vast majority of these children are caused by excessive energy due to improper feeding. Over-feeding is now more common in babies, especially for artificially fed babies. Therefore, the parenting behavior of mothers is particularly important, and scientific feeding behavior will benefit children for the rest of their lives.
