International Breastfeeding Week 2020

जीवनं बृंहणं सात्म्यं स्नेहनं मानुषं पयः| नावनं रक्तपित्ते च तर्पणं चाक्षिशूलिनाम्|| Ch. Su. 27/224 Human breast milk is Jeevana – enlivening Brumhana – nourishing, nutrition rich. Useful in Brimhana therapy Satmya – congenial to human body Snehana – unctuous, increases body oiliness, useful in relieving dryness. Abhighata – it is useful in people suffering from injury with hemorrhage. Exclusive breastfeeding for optimal growth, development and health of infants Breastfeeding has many health benefits for both the mother and infant. Breast milk contains all the nutrients an infant needs in the first six months of life. Breastfeeding protects against diarrhoea and common childhood illnesses such as pneumonia, and may also have longer-term health benefits for the mother and child, such as reducing the risk of overweight and obesity in childhood and adolescence. Breastfeeding has also been associated with higher intelligence quotient (IQ) in children. Exclusive breastfeeding means that the infant receives only breast milk. No other liquids or solids are given – not even water – with the exception of oral rehydration solution, or drops/syrups of vitamins, minerals or medicines. WHO recommendations Infants should be exclusively breastfed for the first six months of life to achieve optimal growth, development and health. Thereafter, to meet their evolving nutritional requirements, infants should receive nutritionally adequate and safe complementary foods, while continuing to breastfeed for up to two years or beyond.
