The Society for Health, Education and Women Empowerment Awareness (SHEWA) organised an orientation programme at SAI College of Nursing to create awareness regarding breast-feeding.
Addressing the gathering, Dr Sujata Sanjay said that in India, only 45 per cent mothers initiate early breastfeeding. The delay in breastfeeding initiation reduces the baby’s access to the mother’s nutritious and immune system-boosting first milk known as colostrum and significantly increases the neonate’s death risk. Every child deserves a healthy start. There is no better way than a mother’s milk, she said. Babies up to six months of age should be fed only on breast milk, with no additional top-up feeds, she added.
