Opelousas General Health System Celebrates World Breastfeeding Week & National Breastfeeding Month

Opelousas General Health System Celebrates World Breastfeeding Week & National Breastfeeding Month

This year, World Health Organization is working with UNICEF and partners to promote the importance of helping mothers breastfeed their babies within that crucial first hour of life.

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. Research shows that babies who are breastfed are less likely to experience health problems, both as children and later as adults.

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

According to her, breastfeeding has been a good culture in Ethiopia where about 96 percent of Ethiopian mothers feed breast to their children; but many do not keep on the principle to provide breastfeeding for children at least for six months.

Pakistan was among the 118 countries which had voted in favour of adopting global code of marketing of breast milk substitutes during the World Health Assembly in May 1981. Babies who are exclusively breastfed for the first 6 months of their lives have lower risk of respiratory infection, sudden infant death syndrome and fewer bouts of diarrhea.

World War II-era "EIRE" markings revealed by massive fire in Ireland
In some of the 83 signs placed around the Irish coast, up to 165 tons of stone were used to create the navigational aides. The Defence Forces Air Corps were helping emergency services extinguish the fire when they noticed the sign from above.

Australia's new breastfeeding strategy covers all these points, and more. These mini-sessions will cover topics that include breastfeeding, labor comfort measures, infant care and safety, and a brand new class for grandmothers-to-be called Nana's Time.

Only about 5% of women are unable to produce enough milk with the right help, and toddlers certainly don't need commercial toddler milk.
Very low exclusive breastfeeding rate has persisted among mothers in Nigeria with the National rate at 25% in 2014 (National Nutrition and Health Survey, 2014).

"In 1990, no woman knew about exclusive breastfeeding".

Prof. Osawaru Oviawe, on his own part, stressed on maintaining the complete immunization doses for babies in addition to optimal breastfeeding up to six months, to build malaria antibodies as well as drive down asthma and eczema allergic reactions associated with milk substitutes. Sustained breastfeeding support, education, and consistent, accurate information will help to meet these goals. Breastfeeding is important to child survival in all settings, but also to ensuring that children can thrive and reach their full cognitive and developmental potentials throughout their lives.
