According to him, Nigeria is a breastfeeding nation because nearly all women in the country breastfeed their children.

Jérôme Cahuzac en Guyane: un médecin parisien veut le faire radier
Paris, le lundi 6 août 2018 - Jerôme Cahuzac semblait s'être sorti par le haut de ses turpitudes judiciaires en reprenant une activité de médecin généraliste.

Dr Nagarathna D.S., Obstetrician & Gynaecologist at Apollo Cradle, Koramangala, said, "Breast milk provides the ideal source of nutrition for new born babies". Dr Nirmala Chandrashekhar, Consultant Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Gynaec Oncology at BGS Gleneagles Global Hospitals said, "Early initiation, that is, breastfeeding from the first hour of birth ensures that infants consume the colostrum, which is the first secretion from the mammary glands after giving birth".

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

Masina further stated that mothers may have observed that health practitioners at clinics encourage the natural breastfeeding as opposed to bottle feeding as they may harbour infections on the artificial tit. Breast milk continues to provide essential nutrients for childhood development up to two years. It is important to note there are circumstances that make it challenging or not possible to breastfeed. One of the steps to successful exclusive breastfeeding includes allowing mothers and infants remain together 24 hours a day. Now is also an opportune time to reverse the rising trends in bottle-feeding that are putting millions of dollars into the pockets of companies that speak laurels of their infant formulas as adequate replacements for breast milk. "Mothers' milk has living antibodies that protect the baby from getting sick".

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).
