Can a working mother provide this long term benefits to kids? What earning you make by compromising newborn’s feeding, is nothing but a kind of homicide. You reduce your own kid’s potential.
Sorry for being harsh but I really don’t understand this mindless urge to resume professional life as early as after 3 months of delivery.
6 months exclusive feeding followed by 2 years prolonged feeding is must. It is every newborn’s right! (Yeah..you guys demand so many rights so in your language! 🙂 )
And what to talk about morons who stop feeding so that their figure is maintained?
And dalal/agent of pharma companies, docs who prescribe feeding formula!! 🙁
I genuinely understand those mothers who have difficulty in lactating. They are exceptions. Any normal mother must not give career higher priority.
I urge PMO India to plan compulsory 2 years paid leaves for all female employees. Something like PF fund.
Healthy kids = Healthy and strong Nation
Every other day new research identifies importance of breast feeding.
Can we ignore?
1) Exclusive Breast feeding for 6 months vs less Polio cases correlation is found
2) Breast milk changes as child grows – Can any product replace it? Impossible!
3) Breast milk carry stem cells – It helps to cure injuries (internal/external) happened during pregnancy and while delivering
4) Breast milk vs IQ/EQ correlation found
Association between breastfeeding and intelligence, educational attainment, and income at 30 years of age: a prospective birth cohort study from Brazil
“Our study provides the first evidence that prolonged breastfeeding not only increases intelligence until at least the age of 30 years but also has an impact both at an individual and societal level by improving educational attainment and earning ability. What is unique about this study is the fact that, in the population we studied, breastfeeding was not more common among highly educated, high-income women, but was evenly distributed by social class. Previous studies from developed countries have been criticized for failing to disentangle the effect of breastfeeding from that of socioeconomic advantage, but our work addresses this issue for the first time.”
