Kajiado nursing moms given tips on breastfeeding

She explained further that breastfeeding was good bonding between mother and infant, adding that improved breastfeeding practices around the world, could save the lives of almost one million children under five years, according to worldwide health bodies.

According to United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF), it is described as the cornerstone of care for childhood development and the gold standard of infant feeding as it provides all the nutrients that a child needs for the first six months of life.

Augustine Elijio Deputy Director of Health Services: Its tantamount that not only mothers should be into this business of breast feeding but it must be the entire family like within a home setting.The father, the mother and any other persons as wells the community at large must be on board so that we could promote this whole aspect of breast feeding to the end having a healthy populace.

World Health Organization recommends that infants start receiving complementary foods at 6 months of age in addition to breast milk, initially 2-3 times a day between 6 and 8 months, increasing to 3-4 times daily between 9 and 11 months and 12-24 months with additional nutritious snacks offered 1-2 times per day, as desired.

The right nutrition during this 1 000-day window can have a profound impact on a child's ability to develop and learn. Globally, the breastfeeding rate now stands at 40%. Pasteurised mother's milk can be stored in a freezer for up to six months at -20 degrees Celsius, and at room temperature, it can be kept for three hours.

The report shows that there has been an improvement since 2008.

'We're making progress, but it's a hard journey.

A nursing mother, Mrs. Onoshaze Omorunyi while enumerating on the benefits also talked about challenges of breastfeeding.

"For those who are, there are a number of factors that bedevil progress".

Only thirty-three percent of mothers breastfeed their baby in Belize. "Being a knowledgeable and aware woman I still failed in exclusively breastfeeding my child after my cesarean section because I did not get the required support from the hospital staff". It prevents hunger, malnutrition, and ensures food security for the child.

Regulating an industry that makes profits on the back of women choosing not to breastfeed is a good start.

Breast-feeding can lower the risk of type 2 diabetes as well as certain types of breast and ovarian cancer.

'The benefits for both maternal and child health are clear and that is the crux of the message that we need to deliver.

"While some progress has been made, there continues to be a gap between policies and the implementation thereof".

Okere told nursing mothers at Zamzam Hospital in Ngong, to observe hygiene in addition to exclusive breastfeeding for undersix months, as they also continue to breastfeed for two years.
