Sejak masuk rumah baru ni, belum sekali pun I berkongsi apa2 info kan. So for today, lets share whatever info you guys have regarding this topic!
Masa balik Malaysia tahun lepas, Rafiqh selsema. My PIL, saudara-mara and even my mom sendiri pun suruh I bagi Rafiqh makan madu. Yup, everyone knows that honey is good for our body, but the point is who you want to feed? A BABY! I tak salahkan sesiapa yang nasihatkan I untuk buat itu ini, tapi I cukup tak suka bila I dah explainded kenapa tak boleh, mereka berkeras paksa2. Oh sungguh mencabar kesabaranku ok. So in my case, I just ignored, buat2 pekak!
Q : I've heard that I shouldn't feed my baby honey. Is this true?
A : It's true that honey should not be fed to infants younger than 1 year old. Clostridium bacteria that cause infant botulism usually thrive in soil and dust. However, they can also contaminate certain foods — honey in particular. Infant botulism can cause muscle weakness, with signs like poor sucking, a weak cry, constipation, and an overall decreased muscle tone (floppiness).
Parents can reduce the risk of infant botulism by not introducing honey into their baby's diet until after the first birthday. As kids get older, their bodies are better able to handle the bacteria.
