Why Breastfeeding Mothers Should Practice Exclusive Breastfeeding – WFI

Mrs. Rosemary Adaji, the programme coordinator for the Women Friendly Initiative (WFI), has recommended nursing moms to exclusively breastfeed in order to protect the health of their infants.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Gwagwalada, Abuja, Adaji provided the advice shortly after a prenatal education session for women.

According to the course coordinator, breastfeeding a baby exclusively for the first six months after delivery has many advantages for moms.

“Exclusive breastfeeding is beneficial since it is incredibly nourishing and acts as a defence for infants because it contains all the nutrients required for healthy development throughout the delicate stage.

“Breast milk prevent children from falling sick. When a child is also malnourished such child’s immunity will be low and can easily fall sick to many diseases including pneumonia.

“As a nursing mother, you are expected to eat good food to enrich your milk and keep your baby healthy.

“This also helps in bonding the mother and the child aside from providing the first immunity for the child at birth.

“Exclusive breastfeeding is very nutritious and a defense for babies because it contains all the nutrients a baby needs to grow well at the tender stage,” she said.

Adaji implored nursing mothers not only to exclusively breastfeed their babies for six months, but also continue breastfeeding the babies for two years though with complementary diets because of the huge benefits to children and mothers. (NAN)
