Here’s Why Doctors Are Concerned About This Latest Breastfeeding Trend

Precautions

But for Dr. Carol Cooper, she’s simply not impressed. In fact, she’s also warning parents who are considering this feeding method for their baby.

According to the Mirror, Dr Cooper said: “If you give a baby ice, you risk damage to their lips, mouth and tongue. When you think of a teething ring, there is no contact with the ice and silicon usually protects the baby’s mouth. What worries me is direct contact with ice as this can cause what doctors call ‘thermal injuries.’”

She added, “Breast milk should be given to babies at the right consistency and temperature – as it is. If your baby needs cooling down, there are other ways such as taking layers off.”
