WELCOME SPEECH

WELCOME SPEECH :

Breastfeeding is feeding an infant or young child with breast milk directly from human breasts and not from a baby bottle or other container. Babies have a sucking reflex that enables them to suck and swallow milk. Most mothers can nourish their infant (or infants in the case of twins and multiple births) by breastfeeding for the first six months or more, without the supplement of infant formula milk or solid food.

Human breast milk is the best source of nourishment for human infants, preventing disease, promoting health and reducing health care costs (though there are exceptions such as when the mother is taking some drugs or is infected with tuberculosis or HIV). Experts disagree about how long to breastfeed to gain the greatest benefit, and about the risks of using artificial formulas.

The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life and then breastfeeding up to two years or more. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of the infant’s life and at least one year of breastfeeding in total. Exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life “provides continuing protection against diarrhea and respiratory tract infection” that is more common in babies fed formula.  

Breastfeeding is the physiological norm for both mothers and their children. The IBN recommends that all babies, with rare exceptions, be breastfed and/or receive expressed human milk exclusively for about the first six months of life. Breastfeeding should continue with the addition of complementary foods throughout the second half of the first year. Breastfeeding beyond the first year offers considerable benefits to both mother and child, and should continue as long as mutually desired. The future parents should have the knowledge to promote, protect, and support breastfeeding.  

Breastfeeding beyond the first year offers considerable benefits to both mother and child, and should continue as long as mutually desired. . . If the child is younger than two years of age, the child is at increased risk of illness if weaned.”

Human milk is often called “liquid gold.” This reflects the golden hue of colostrum, a mother’s first milk, and more importantly, the value of the irreproducible nutrients, antibodies, and growth factors babies receive with each nursing.

Breast is the Best !

What could be more natural? 

  • There is no freedom of choice for humans

  • if it has been taken away from them at the beginning.

  • Breast-feeding is not a choice,

  • but an obligation to the choice.

  • Give your child the freedom of choice.
