Because of the hot summer weather, bacteria are abusing crazily! Small and invisible bacteria may contaminate milk powder and lead to bacteria infection to babies. Especially in the process of babies'milk powder preparation, it is a very meticulous work whether in the method of preparation or the preservation and placement. Every aspect should be taken into account, otherwise, the milk powder may be contaminated by bacteria. It is a big threat to the baby’s health.
So, no matter whether mothers had thought about milk powder in milk markets would be contaminated before! From today on, let us learn how to protect the milk powder from contaminating to keep the baby healthy. How to effectively prevent the contamination of milk powder and keep the shelf life of milk powder?
1. Clean hands before brewing milk
When preparing milk powder, the mother's hands need to be in close contact with milk bottles, milk powder, milk powder cans, milk powder spoons. Many bacteria-contaminated hands may accidentally contaminate milk powder.
Therefore, the mother must clean her hands before brewing milk powder. It's better to rub them with soap and hand washing liquid, especially the finger seam should be carefully cleaned and the wrist should not be neglected.
2. Punching on a dry and clean desktop
Many mothers have a bad habit of brewing milk powder by the kitchen sink. They may neglect that the tabletop also pollutes milk powder. Because milk powder needs to be put on the table when it is taken, there will be many pollutants beside the sink, such as oil stains, detergents, and sewage. If not cleaned up, bacteria will enter the milk powder through the milk powder cover, then may cause milk allergic to babies.
Mothers should brew the milk powder on the dry and clean table, and prevent the water from splashing on the cover of the milk powder when pouring.
3. Put the lid on the milk powder can in time after taking milk powder out.
Sometimes the mother is too anxious to mix the milk powder. If she doesn't cover the milk powder in time and feeds the baby first, and then comes back to cover the milk powder. This behavior can easily contaminate milk powder.
The mother must cover the lid in time after taking the milk powder to prevent insects from getting in. Also, milk powder exposed to the outside for a long time is vulnerable to moisture deterioration.
It is also worth to pay attention that if the bagged milk powder needs to be stored in the milk powder can, it is better to put it in a bag instead of pouring the milk powder directly into the empty can to prevent bacterial cross-infection.
4. Brewing milk powder should not use chopsticks or other tools
Many mothers are brewing milk powder with chopsticks and spoons to dissolve it fully. This is wrong. This is because the infectious bacteria in chopsticks or other tools can be mixed into milk powder. So how can we make the milk powder dissolve sufficiently? After tightening the bottle cap, clamp the bottle with both hands and roll the bottle horizontally.
5. Milk powder spoon should be put back in its position
Using milk powder is usually accompanied by a milk powder spoon. With this spoon, the mother can accurately control the dosage, but its storage problems are often ignored. Some mothers put the spoon directly into the jar or on the table so that the spoon contaminated the milk powder inadvertently, then contaminate milk nutrients.
There is usually a spoon place in the milk powder can, and it's better for mothers to put it in the special spoon place after they use it up. To ensure that milk powder is not contaminated, at the same time, but also convenient for mother's access. If there is no special spoon place, the mother is advised to prepare a sealed box for the spoon.
