Mothers are encouraged to breastfeed regardless of their HIV status

Breastfeeding challenges: Paediatrician urges mothers to seek medical help early

The Brattleboro Area Chamber of Commerce recently named her Entrepreneur of the Year. Babies who are breastfed have a lower risk of developing certain health conditions, such as type 1 & 2 diabetes, obesity and asthma. Additionally, it threatened Ecuador, the sponsor country of the resolution, with retaliatory trade measures and removal of military aid if they continued to pursue it.

HIV positive, breastfeeding mothers are given a fixed-dose combination drug that is a combination of two or more antiretroviral (ARV) drugs in one pill which allows them to also exclusively breastfeed their babies, preventing a mother-to-child transmission during the infant feeding period. This is especially important as most establishments in Nigeria do not make any provisions for crèches where breastfeeding mothers can bring their babies so that the babies are close enough for the mothers to take breastfeeding breaks and breastfeed their infants. Women who find themselves in this situation need support and affirmation as well.

What are some of the benefits of breastfeeding? Research shows that babies who are breastfed are less likely to experience health problems, both as children and later as adults.

The ministry of health and Health experts also emphasise exclusive breastfeeding for mothers for at least six months as this increases chances of babies growing up healthier and bonding with their mothers.

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.

Eregie stated that breastfeeding is the foundation of life.

And, the Vermont Department of Health launched the Breastfeeding Friendly Employer Project in 2016 that offers several ideas for policies, space and resources that can be implemented.
