Milk mixture "Nestozhen": tip-study
Almost every mother faces the problem of choosing a milk formula when it comes time to tear the baby from the breast or breastfeed a newborn baby. On the forums, the most recommended mixture for newborns is "Nestozhen", or "Nestogen", which we will discuss in more detail in this article.
What are the merits of the mixture "Nestozhen" celebrated by mummies:
- the child stabilizes the stool;
- this mixture has a sweetish flavor;
- babies are less worried about colic;
- affordable price.
Normalization of the stool and absence of colic indicates that there is no individual intolerance to this mixture. This contributes to the mixture of prebiotics (natural dietary fiber), which improve the intestinal microflora and prevent the occurrence of constipation.
In addition to the prebiotics, the milk mix "Nestozhen" contains vitamins and minerals that are necessary for this or that age. So keep an eye on what kind of box you buy for your baby. The figures on the package show the recommended age of feeding this mixture.
If a newborn is given a mixture for six months from the first days, he will begin to have abdominal pain, allergic rashes, regurgitation and stool problems, since his intestine is not ready to take such an abundance of substances. But a one-year-old kid will not get any unpleasant sensations if he eats a mixture for newborns, he'll just be hungry.
What are the drawbacks of this mixture?
According to the mothers, the mixture "Nestozhen" (recall taken from the directory of goods "Babiblog") causes the following problems:
- the chair is broken in children, there is a multi-day constipation (for 2-4 days), the color of the stool is green, the plasticine consistency;
- regurgitation with a curd;
- allergy in the form of rashes and plaques on the body and face;
- mixture with GMO (the presence of soy lecithin).
Violation of the stool is associated with intestinal intolerance to the newborn. This does not mean that the producer ("Nestle") of the mixture is not good enough, just a child needs another lure. Constipation can occur with a change of food, and regurgitation is due to non-compliance with hygiene feeding. However, if these symptoms appear after each feeding, this indicates that the mixture is intolerant.
Allergic reactions may occur because of intolerance to the child:
1) protein cow's milk (casein);
But the manufacturer also points out that only for healthy children is the mixture "Nestozhen" intended. The recall of mothers, whose children are not prone to allergies, confirms this. In case of the appearance of a rash, give tests for dysbacteriosis and allergies, it is possible that a mixture with goat's milk will suit you.
Now consider the presence of soy lecithin in the mixture. Lecithin for human body in small amounts (not more than 7 grams) is simply necessary for the growth and regeneration of cells, the assimilation of vitamins A, D, K, E, for the formation and operation of the central nervous system.
Lack of lecithin in the body leads to underdevelopment of speech, underweight, memory impairment, decreased attention, unstable mental development. Well, a newborn in the absence of lecithin simply does not assimilate the above vitamins necessary for its development, growth, weight gain.
Which components are included in the "Nestozhen" mixture: a review of the composition of the mixture
In order that each mother could assess the merits or demerits of a mixture of this brand, we suggest reading her composition for newborns (+1): skimmed milk, GOS (galactose saccharides), demineralized whey, lactose, soy lecithin, maltodextrin, vegetable oils, FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides), citrate calcium and potassium, sodium chloride, calcium and magnesium, taurine, vitamins, zinc sulfate, manganese, iron and copper, L-carnitine, sodium selenate, potassium iodide. Does not contain GMOs, flavors, preservatives, dyes.
It is alarming in this composition the absence of names of vegetable oils. For example, palm oil complicates the process of assimilation of food, and rapeseed oil is a part of technical fluids. Caution should be shown to mothers, whose children are prone to allergies, as lecithin and cow's milk protein are strong allergens.
But the presence of L-carnitine and taurine has a beneficial effect on the development of the brain and vision, and due to iodine and selenium, the burden on the kidneys decreases. Prebiotics (FOS and GOS) improve the functioning of the intestine. Note that indigestion in the baby causes individual intolerance of the components (as indicated by the manufacturer on the box), as well as an overdue or improperly prepared Nestozhen mixture.
