Benefits of breastfeeding for baby health

The Ministry of Health, in collaboration with International Baby Food Action Network, carried out an assessment of the tools the government had put in place to create an enabling environment to support, promote and protect child-feeding.

He challenged moms to maintain healthy living by eating a balanced diet in order to provide the right nutrients for the babies through breast milk. "After that, if the baby and mother both mutually chose to continue, breastfeeding can be continued for up to two years of the baby's age", said Dr Asmita Mahajan, SL Raheja Hospital, Mahim.

A group of experts at the launch of the report highlighted the need to spread awareness on the importance of breastfeeding in the first six months.

Another important issue is how soon mothers are expected to breastfeed their babies. "It's different from the milk produced even a few days later, because it's packed with a lot of factors that get the baby's immune system off to a good start". This can make you and your baby vulnerable to infections. It has purgative properties that help to clear the meconium (the greenish stool passed by babies). "About 15 million babies out of 26 million born are not able to begin breastfeeding within one hour of birth even as 80 % women deliver in health facilities", the report states deriving these estimates based on the National Family Health Survey - 4.

Fariha Matloob, a breastfeeding counselor is quoted. 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.

For others, the stigma they face when they try to breastfeed children in public discourages them from attempting.
