Many people think that brewing milk powder is a very simple thing, just mix boiling water and milk powder in proportion. In fact, in the process of Xiaoguo's medical practice, it is still found that many people will make one or other mistakes when brewing milk powder, which will have a slight or serious impact on the baby's health. For example, there was once a 6-month-old baby who developed severe anemia inexplicably. In the end, it was found that the culprit was when the mother was brewing milk powder, which was too thin! For example, there was once a premature baby who was not a full month. He was hospitalized because of "necrotizing enterocolitis" and was in danger of getting sick. It turned out that the family wanted the baby to catch up with the full-term baby earlier, and the milk powder was too thick! ...So, what should we pay attention to when we brew milk powder for the baby? Today's article is mainly to solve this problem:
  • What temperature is the most suitable for brewing milk powder?
  • Is there any particularity in the water used to brew milk powder?
  • Is it important to put water or milk powder first?
  • Does the brewing ratio have to strictly follow the instructions?
  • How long can brewed milk powder be kept?
  • I. What temperature is the most suitable for brewing milk powder?

    When it comes to temperature, many people will be surprised. Is there any particular attention to this temperature? No, the knowledge of this temperature is great! If you carefully read the instructions on the milk powder can before brewing milk powder, you will find that different milk powder, even different stages of the same milk powder, have different recommendations for the temperature of brewing milk powder. Xiaoguo has researched that the current milk powder on the market has two suggestions for the temperature of brewed milk powder:
    • Room temperature: 40℃ or 50℃
    • 70℃
    The room temperature is chosen because the nutrients of the milk powder can be preserved to the greatest extent at this temperature, and this temperature, which can be fed immediately after brewing, is very convenient. The water temperature of 70°C was chosen because in 2007, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) co-edited the "Guidelines for the Safe Preparation, Storage and Handling of Infant Formula", which mentioned: Sakazaki sausage The suitable growth temperature of bacillus is between 37°C and 43°C. Mixing milk powder with 70°C water can kill any Enterobacter sakazakii in milk powder. Therefore, to prevent Enterobacter sakazakii, it is necessary to brew milk powder with water above 70°C, and the baby must drink it within 2 hours after brewing.

    Second, Is there any particularity to the water for brewing milk powder?

    Yes! The water for brewing milk powder for the baby can be ordinary boiled tap water. If you are a little more careful, you can also choose: tap water filtered by a water purifier or purified water. However, it is not recommended to use mineral water to brew milk powder. For adults, mineral water does add some minerals. However, the formula powder has been specially formulated according to the nutrients required for the growth and development of the baby at different stages, and the trace elements are all matched reasonably. If you use mineral water to brew milk powder for a long time, it may increase the burden on the kidneys, which is not conducive to growth and development. In recent years, mothers have also discovered that there is also a "baby water" on the market, claiming that the water is specially tailored for babies, which can supplement nutrition, lower hardness and so on. In fact, this is a gimmick of the business, and it is an IQ tax. At present, there is no so-called "baby water" standard in our country at all!

    Third, is it important to put water or milk powder first?

    Of course! The correct order of brewing milk powder is: put water first, then put the appropriate proportion of milk powder! If you put milk powder first and then water, the result is: the milk after the actual preparation will be too thick, and the milk is too thick, which will put too much pressure on the baby's digestive system, which will not be easy to digest, and will cause damage to the intestinal mucosa. Damages the kidneys, sometimes life-threatening!

    Fourth, must the brewing ratio be strictly in accordance with the instructions?

    Yes. Some people will add a little more milk powder when brewing milk powder because of the consideration of [the milk is thicker, more nutritious, and more hungry] or [the baby is thinner and smaller, and the milk powder should be soaked a little more to strengthen the nutrition]. Some people will deliberately dilute the milk powder for the purpose of [the baby gets angry, the milk powder is diluted a little] or [the milk powder is diluted a little, let the baby drink more water]. In fact, both of these approaches are wrong. To brew milk powder, you must strictly follow the ratio requirements on the milk powder can. Too thick will cause a burden on the gastrointestinal tract and kidneys, and too thin will lead to insufficient nutrition, which will affect the health of the baby.

    5. How long can brewed milk powder be stored?

    Some babies are impatient, cry when they are hungry, or breastfeed frequently at night. For convenience, some parents choose to soak milk powder in advance, put it in a breast warmer, and feed the baby directly when they are hungry. In fact, when brewing milk powder, it is best to be [instantly brewed and drink]! If you can't do [instant drinking], then it is recommended to drink it within the [shelf life]. If you can't drink it, don't feel bad, just throw it away. So, how long is the shelf life of brewed milk powder?
    • Keep milk at room temperature for no more than 2 hours without baby drinking;
    • If baby drinks part of it, It needs to be consumed within 1 hour, over time it will breed bacteria and damage your baby's health.
    • If you choose to store in a refrigerator below 5°C, it can be refrigerated for 24 hours, up to a maximum of 48 hours. But be careful not to take more than 15 minutes to warm milk with hot water, and occasionally rotate the bottle to evenly heat the milk.
