The supportive teaching aid for breastfeeding mums. In the first few days after their baby's birth, mothers produce the right amount of breast milk for their baby. To help mothers better to understand this concept, Ardo has designed Belly Balls.



 



Each size of Ardo Belly Balls corresponds to the estimated average size of a new-born'??s elastic stomach. The average size of a new-born baby's stomach will be:




  • on the first day: 5-7ml

  • on the third day: 22-27 ml

  • on the fifth day: approx. 57ml



 



Healthy, full-term, newborn babies usually only need colostrum and breastmilk and do not require additional nourishment or fluids. The specialist and professional community is in complete agreement about this: WHO (World Health Organisation) actually recommends that supplementary feeding be avoided because it may compromise successful breast feeding.



During previous decades, additional fluids and starter-nourishment were routinely given to healthy, full-term babies born to healthy mothers, both in the delivery room and the maternity ward. Today, many new parents are anxious that their baby is receiving too little nourishment if no supplementary nutrition is given. New-born babies often cry, or are restless in the first few days after birth &?? this is probably not because they are hungry, but because they miss the close contact with the body-warmth and heartbeat of the mother.,



In the context of a sympathetic and friendly discussion, Ardo Belly Balls constitute a helpful aid to show how small the stomach of a child is and also to show that the available amount of milk is, as a rule, completely sufficient. So the new mother can be absolutely reassured, and gain increased self-confidence. She can also feel confident that her baby is receiving nutrition for satisfactory growth and well-being.
