Increasing Numbers Of Dehydrated New Born Babies Needing Emergency hospital care

Many new mothers are being told not to bottle feed because it will ruin breastfeeding, but an increasing number are being left with babies so dehydrated they need emergency// hospital care.

Experts have reported that hundreds of newborn babies suffering from dehydration are being re-admitted to hospital as mothers are being warned not to resort to bottle-feeding. They explain that the 'breast is best' message has left many women unwilling to use formula milk even as a back up when their babies are not feeding properly.

It was also reported that the acute scarcity of midwives also means that new mothers are not getting the appropriate support they need to confidently breastfeed, due to which many newborns increasingly risk becoming dangerously dehydrated.

Dr Ganesan Subramaniam, a Paediatrician, who had worked in the NHS for 35 years and now practises in Bushey, Hertfordshire, said many hospitals are now days treating a baby a week for dehydration. This when seen, as a larger picture would sum up to 250 babies admitted for emergency treatment around the country.

Speaking to the press, he said, "It is a major problem and it is increasing, breastfeeding is best but it is dangerous to say, don't use formula at any stage." He also added that "Dehydration can cause renal failure and severe jaundice can lead to brain damage. What is not helpful is this militant attitude of breastfeeding or nothing." It was explained that the problem usually sets in within the first couple of days of the babies life, and many of the new mothers fail to realise that their child is not feeding properly.

Explaining that when the babies, who could be unfed or underfed, eventually cry themselves to sleep, and when it wakes up for its next feed, would have less energy and hence will not cry for so long. This cycle after 3 to 4 failed feeds would make the baby so tired and dehydrated that it would eventually sleep through its feeding tim
