BREASTFEEDING

Updated: Aug 10, 2021

Breastfeeding is when you feed your baby breast milk directly from your breast. It’s also called nursing. Making the decision to breastfeed is a personal matter. Breastfeeding is one of the most natural and beneficial acts performable by a mother and her baby.



Gynaecologists strongly recommend breastfeeding exclusively for 6 months. How often you should breastfeed your baby depends on whether your baby prefers small, frequent meals or longer feedings. This will change as your baby grows. New-borns often want to feed every 2-3 hours. By 2 months, feeding every 3-4 hours is common, and by six months, most babies feed every 4-5 hours.


Breast milk is a unique, natural and supporting nutriment. It is clean and is always at the right temperature. Breastfeeding is the perfect way to reinforce your connection with your baby.


World Breastfeeding Week (1st - 7th August)

Set every August for the first seven days of the month, World Breastfeeding Week aims to highlight the huge benefits that breastfeeding can bring to both the health and welfare of babies, as well as a wider push for maternal health, focusing on good nutrition, poverty reduction and food security.


The event is organized every year by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action, a global network that aims to protect, promote and support breastfeeding around the world.

Breastfeeding weeks aim to raise awareness of the health and wellbeing outcomes of breastfeeding and the importance of supporting mothers to breastfeed for as long as they wish.
