Breastfeeding- Nurture your Infant the Right Way

  • August 04, 2020

Little do we know and even more little do we accept that breastfeeding is a boon for an infant's health. This miracle liquid that occurs all by itself in the breast glands of a new mother is filled with protection and strength.

But the urban wave does not allow busy women to dedicate herself to this extremely responsible and sensitive phenomenon.

Also breastfeeding is seen as a taboo by many as a woman can't expose herself to feeding her little one out and about. But if seen it as a natural process, there is nothing she is doing which should raise biased roars. She is not only filling the tiny little tummy of the infant, she is passing on strength, power and sensitive emotions to the baby.

First immunization for the baby.

Health professionals and WHO recommend that breastfeeding should begin within the first hour of a baby's life. It should be allowed as often and as much as the baby wants. It helps to develop/improve immunity and to address mortality and morbidity related to major problems like malnutrition, neonatal infections, diarrhea, jaundice, pneumonia etc. Breast milk provides all the energy and nutrients that the infant needs for the initial months of life. As per WHO, Infants should be exclusively breastfed for the first six months of life to achieve optimal growth and it should continue for up to two years or beyond.

Breastfeeding has many benefits for both, mother & child

Breast milk comes with natural antibodies. The infant feed lacks in these powerhouses. 6 to 8 months of breastfeeding should be followed religiously. Alongside, soft food is also highly recommended from the sixth month onwards. Breastfeed saves the mother from dangers of ovarian cancer, breast cancer and Type II diabetes. While it saves the child from diseases like adult obesity, diabetes and lack of intelligence.

Create an exclusive new mom zone

Around the world, many Health facilities have started with a progressive approach toward breastfeeding. Dedicated areas that are extremely hygienic and equipped with nurses or mid-wives to train the new mother and infant to breastfeed. A certain level of health safety is to be maintained while performing this process to keep the new mum and baby safe.  

Go on woman. You are gifted with the power to raise a powerhouse for the future. Breastfeed your infant.
