The Shocking Benefits of Water for Baby Health



Mothers are certainly no stranger to starch. Yes, the water that comes from the decoction of red rice and white rice if observed is very similar to milk. However, does this rice boiled water has benefits for babies? Come on, see the benefits of starch water for babies who love if you miss.

Benefits of starch water for baby's health

Rice is the staple food of the Indonesian people. Aside from being cooked into the rice, rice cooking water turns out to have many nutrients, such as magnesium, potassium, sodium, protein, phosphorus, fiber, iron, calcium, folate, carbohydrates, and various B vitamins.

Well, since a long time ago many parents deliberately gave rice boiled water to wean or introduce babies to solid foods, such as porridge or rice. Even though it has been applied for generations, you should know the benefits of starch before giving it to babies, including:

1. Treat diarrhea in infants

Diarrhea is very common in infants. This disease occurs because the intestines move excessively and cause the baby to continue to urinate more than 4 or 6 times a day. If not treated, diarrhea can cause the baby to be dehydrated and weak. Well, one of the natural remedies to treat diarrhea in infants is starch water.

This rice boiled water contains fiber, sodium, and carbohydrates which can reduce bowel movements. In addition, these nutrients can also replace lost body fluids that prevent dehydration. Reduced bowel movements and changes in the baby's body fluid intake make the symptoms of diarrhea lighter and he returns to strength.

The benefits of starch water to treat diarrhea in infants are indeed approved and recommended by WHO around the 90s. However, rice boiled water is not used as a single treatment. In addition, the boiled water of rice is also fairly old-fashioned and more difficult to make than ORS which has been proven to be more effective in treating diarrhea.

2. Keep baby's skin healthy

Although the amount is not as much as rice, the rice boiled water still contains B vitamins, such as thiamine and riboflavin. Both of these vitamins are also known for their antioxidant properties which can facilitate blood circulation to skin cells. This helps regenerate the skin and makes it look always fresh and young.

A study says that oil from rice contains ferulic acid, gamma-oryzanol, phytic acid which is often added to cosmetics as well as some skin medications. This content may also be found in rice cooking water so it is often used for the treatment of dry skin or eczema in infants. Unfortunately, until now there has been no deeper research into the benefits of starch water in reducing symptoms of eczema.

Even so, you should not be easily tempted to use starch water as baby skin care. Remember, a baby's skin is very sensitive especially if he has eczema. Instead of curing, using certain ingredients that are uncertain about their effectiveness can make the baby's skin condition worse. So, consult your child's dermatologist first before you try it.

3. Maintain healthy hair

Although rare, hair problems can still occur in infants. In order to maintain healthy hair, you can use starch for baby hair care. Inositol content in rice water can strengthen hair, prevent branching hair, and other damage to the hair.

Although the benefits of starch water are abundant, don't give it if ...
Starch water can indeed help you wean your little one. However, it is not used as a substitute for milk or breast milk for babies under the age of 6 months. Because the nutritional content of breast milk is far more abundant and needed by babies than rice boiled water.

Indeed, starch water is known as one of the alternative treatments for certain health problems in infants. However, unfortunately, there are not many studies that discuss the benefits of starch water for little ones.

Besides that, keep in mind that not all babies can drink rice boiled water. Because there are some children who have allergies to the content of rice. So, consult your pediatrician before giving baby water to starch.
