Say No To Breastfeeding Problems Today!

It’s awesome to have a little one look smilingly at you!

Nature has bestowed every mom with a priceless gift: breast milk. But, there are moms that have certain issues when it comes to feeding their kids. The issues can be various – physical, mental as well as stereotypical, and therefore, we observe World Breastfeeding Week to inform, engage, and galvanise change.  

World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated every 1st -7th August since 1992 to facilitate moms with the baggage of good news breastfeeding brings to them.

What are the benefits of breast milk and breastfeeding?

Breastfeeding offers a variety of health benefits to not only your child but also to you. It helps you in returning to your pre-pregnancy weight and reduces the risk of developing breast, ovarian and uterus cancer. It can also lower the risk of developing type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and post-menopausal osteoporosis in future.

Breastfeeding has some prompt benefits too –

  • Early expulsion of placenta
  • Helps uterus contract and return to pre-pregnancy stage
  • Reduces post-delivery bleeding
  • Acts as a contraceptive

Thus, breastfeeding counselling is absolutely necessary for moms dealing with breastfeeding problems.

Breastfeeding tips for new moms to fight Covid infections

No cases of Covid-19 have come to notice where the virus has transferred due to breastfeeding a child. Hence, the importance of breast milk is unequivocally unmappable; it is a priceless gift that Mother Nature has fed her children with. It is safe for the baby even in the worst of conditions.

There is no need for moms to be scared of Covid-19 and keep their babies away, as skin-to-skin contact improves thermal regulation of the new born, helps in early initiation of breastfeeding, reduces neo-natal mortality and renders several other physiological benefits.

Mothers must implement appropriate hygiene measures in order to reduce the possibility of spreading Covid-19. The following breastfeeding tips for new moms must be observed while the mother is symptomatic or till 14 days after the start of symptoms, whichever is longer.

  • It’s not really necessary to wash your breast before feeding, but if you have coughed or sneezed on the exposed portion of your breast then do wash for 20 seconds.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use alcohol-based hand rub, especially before touching the baby.
  • Wear a medical mask while feeding your child.
  • Don’t touch your mask from the front; take it off by holding its string from the behind.
  • Don’t reuse a mask
  • Regularly clean and disinfect surroundings.
  • You can begin to feed your child once you start feeling well; there’s no need to wait for it.
  • Drink a lot of water and eat a well-balanced diet
  • Have a good sleep

The reasons of World Breastfeeding Week are to apprise every mom of the importance of breastfeeding. There is nothing in the world that can replace the benefits of breast milk. No matter how much breastfeeding problems you have, try to encourage yourself as well as others to fight those so that your child grows into the happy and healthy adult you have ever wished to see.
