  • Since August is National Breastfeeding Awareness month a 9NEWS digital producer and mother of two is sharing her thoughts about breastfeeding

OTC employees are supported as they return to work and continue providing breast milk for their babies.

This year's theme is "Breastfeeding: Foundation of Life".

According to studies, breastfeeding is one of the most effective ways of reducing child deaths and promoting healthy development.

Marketers are driving unprecedented growth in sales of infant formula across the world and as a result, millions of families - many from low-income settings feed their babies on formulas they don't need and can not often afford, endangering countless children's lives. Breastfeeding has been shown to decrease the risk of ovarian and breast cancer, as well as type 2 diabetes.

"These are some of the things they can do to emphasise the importance of this week", said Nestlé's medical and scientific affairs manager Anne Marie de Beer.

The WHO explains the practice of exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months as a process through which the newborns are fed only mothers' breast milk without any supplementary food, drink or even water.

"The room will be a place of comfort for nursing mothers where they can breastfeed her babies in privacy", said Mukunda Gautam, senior public health administrator at the DoHS Nutrition Department, . The practical guidance encourages new mothers to breastfeed and informs health workers about how best to support breastfeeding.

Babies should be breasfted within an hour of being born, according to United Nations and World Health Organization recommendations.

"The government of Nepal has been playing an important role in the worldwide stage to end the production of BMS for the betterment of health of both mother and child", said Dr Pradyumna Dahal, nutrition specialist at Unicef.

PAHO recommended breastfeeding of newborns within the first 60 minutes of life; breastfeeding of babies exclusively until the age of six months, and breastfeeding as a supplement until the age of two years.

Roy said that 'the so-called beauty-conscious wealthy moms developed a regrettable reluctance to breastfeed their babies under the misconception that it would affect the shape of their breasts'.

In addition to improving child survival and protecting against life-threatening and chronic illnesses, it also promotes healthy growth and boosts early child development.

A report by Unicef and the World Health Organisation, released ahead of World Breastfeeding Week starting today (Wednesday), estimates that three in five - 78 million - babies are not breastfed within the first hour of life, putting them at a higher risk of death and disease and making them less likely to continue breastfeeding.

The governments can also enhance exclusive breastfeeding through supportive policies guaranteeing at least six months paid maternity leave and strong legislation regulating marketing of breastmilk substitutes. "The over-use of bottles and dummies is discouraged", Manyoga advised.

"Increasing our breastfeeding rates is a key strategy in our efforts to reduce infant mortality in Indiana", Dr. Box said.
