Breastfeeding challenges: Paediatrician urges mothers to seek medical help early Well-nourished generations

Now is also an opportune time to reverse the rising trends in bottle-feeding that are putting millions of dollars into the pockets of companies that speak laurels of their infant formulas as adequate replacements for breast milk.

Southwest Florida and Lee County Breast Coalition are taking steps to provide more support to mothers who struggle with breastfeeding.

Infants who have not been breastfed, face 15 times more chances of dying from pneumonia and 11 times more likely to die from diarrhoea than children who are exclusively breastfed.

Breast milk is packed with nutrients that encourage a healthy Immune System and ensures that the baby is protected from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), middle ear infections, diabetes and decreases the risk of developing psychological disorders.

The benefits of breastfeeding for the mother include protection against breast and ovarian cancers, hip fracture later in life and postmenopausal cardiovascular disease (the longer mothers breastfeed, the greater their protection against breast and ovarian cancer, and hip fractures). Above two thirds of these deaths occur because of inappropriate feeding practices to children during the first year of their birth.

Only about 5% of women are unable to produce enough milk with the right help, and toddlers certainly don't need commercial toddler milk.

First celebrated in 1992 by World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA), World Breastfeeding Week is now observed in over 120 countries by UNICEF, WHO and their partners to spread awareness about benefits of breastmilk and exclusive breastfeeding as well as factors that could promote or hinder exclusive breastfeeding by nursing mothers and recommendations of the way forward. Breastfeeding lowers the baby's risk to allergies such as asthma. According to UNICEF and World Health Organization, approximately 60 per cent of newborns - 78 million babies - are not breastfed within their first hour of life, rendering them susceptible to a plethora of diseases and disadvantages in terms of cognitive development.
