  • Benefits of breastfeeding for baby health

It also helps women regain their normal weight faster, and contribute to the formation of strong mother-child bonds, which reduces the risk of postpartum depression and is a safe and economical means of nutrition. Dr Sundus Al Ajram, paediatrician and worldwide consultant in breastfeeding, will talk about how to motivate mothers to resort to breastfeeding exclusively, starting right from childbirth and until their children are six months old. The HMOs are the third most abundant solid component in human milk after lactose and fat. "A mother might face problems like, pain while feeding, change in the nipple colour, cracked, sore nipple, Mastitis, Vasospasm, Plug Ducts, tongue or lip tie or cleft palates are some of the significant problems faced by mothers while feeding", Varsha Satyan, counsellor, Lactation Consultant, Member of Medela India LC Club says.

"Breastfeeding is recommended for the first six months after birth and should not be replaced by formula milk, juice or water".

Enumerating on this to participants and health personnel at the world breastfeeding week symposium, with theme, "Breastfeeding: Foundation of life" organized by the Institute of Child Health (ICH), UNIBEN/UBTH, in collaboration with Department of worldwide and Global Studies, Mercer University, USA, Professor Eregie observed that it was a technical misnomer to refer to some entities as breast milk substitutes, as alternative food, for feeding babies.

The nutritionist emphasized the importance early initiation, exclusive breastfeeding and continued breastfeeding to the health of mothers, children and the economy. The rates in other regions are South East 18%, North East 22%, South South 31%, and North Central 32%. This brings to the fore the question of maternity leave: Should maternity leave be six months on national scale?

However, she said that the challenge remained achieving exclusive breastfeeding, although progress was being paid in that regard. Let breastfeeding and Mother's Own Milk (MOM) rock.

Lagos State has already implemented this and others can take a cue from the Lagos example. In Egypt, only 19 per cent of babies born by C-section were breastfed in the first hour after birth, compared to 39 per cent of babies born by natural delivery. This is usually about 8 times during the day and 4 times at night but there should be no limit this is just a guide.

Beyond combating marketing of breast milk substitutes, there is need to invest in policies and programmes that support women's breastfeeding. The support in those tender moments helped me firmly hold on to breastfeeding for over six months.

He stated that the first one thousand days of life- "period of pregnancy and next two years of life", were important for the formation and future trajectory in the growth and development of the child.

This year the theme of WBW is "Breastfeeding: Foundation of Life".
