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

Now in Ethiopia, only 58 percent of mothers are aware of the significance of breastfeeding for children till six months without any additional food and water, she stated. Mothers can carry the pump and storage bag to their work place and pump there to keep up their milk supply. Although there's no doubt that safe infant formula is essential for some families, we also need to acknowledge that the industry's aim is to increase market share, not to promote infant health. Addressing a workshop organized by the State Health Society, Nalanda Medical College and Hospital (NMCH) and UNICEF to mark the World Breastfeeding Week, NMCH's paediatrics department head Dr Alka Singh said, "Now, more and more mothers are opting for breastfeeding".

Breast milk is the ideal source of nutrition for babies.

The SBFO started its celebration of World Breastfeeding Week with a 20-hour training course on breastfeeding that was held on Wednesday in partnership with Khorfakkan Hospital.

Breastfeeding is beneficial for mothers as well since it helps them to lose weight faster.

Activities are planned, throughout the state, to draw attention to the importance of breastfeeding for the health and well-being of mothers and children.

Despite the high cultural acceptance for breastfeeding in Pakistan, the country has the highest bottle-feeding rate and lowest exclusive breastfeeding rate in South Asia. This milk is thick and yellow, rich in antibodies and vitamin A which protect the baby against allergy and infection.

Last Wednesday, the Ministry launched the 2018 World Breastfeeding Week, with the theme: "Breastfeeding: Foundation of Life", aimed at linking nutrition security with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Second Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP-II). 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.
