World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) is a global network for individuals and organisations dedicated to the protection, promotion and support for breastfeeding worldwide.
Breast milk delivers the idyllic sustenance for infants. It has a mix of vitamins, protein, and fat – the desired nutrients your baby needs for growing. It is more easily digestible than infant formula.
Babies who are breastfed completely for the first 6 months, without any formula, have lesser chances for ear infections, breathing illnesses, and fits of diarrhoea which means less trips to the doctor. Breastfeeding has been connected to higher IQ scores in later childhood in some studies. Also the physical closeness, skin-to-skin touching, and eye contact all helps the baby bond with the mother and feel secure.
WHO strongly mentions exclusive breastfeeding starting within one hour after birth until a baby is 6 months old. Nutritious complementary foods can then be added while continuing to breastfeed for up to 2 years or beyond. #internationalbreastfeedingweek #awareness #breastfeedwithoutfear #powerofbreastmilk #nutritionmilk #vrudhiholistichealthcare #careforbabies #breastmilk
