Feeding your infants
Birth to 6 months
Babies get all the nutrients they need from breast milk/infant formula.
By 4 to 6 months
Babies continue to get most of their nutrients from breast milk/infant formula. Iron-fortified infant cereal like rice and barley or pureed meats helps to replenish iron reserves.
Breastfeeding benefit (Source: New Straits Times, 24th June 2011)
Breastfeeding mothers should be applauded for their decision to breastfeed. Although overtall awareness of the importance of breastfeeding has increased, there is still a long wat to go to reach the objective. More efforts should be made to encourage mothers to breastfeed exclusively for six months.
Milk production increases with the decrease in the level of progesterone, i.e. 30 to 40 hours after delivery. During this period, the body releases prolactin and oxytocin (milk producing hormones). milk production is also stimulated by the suckling of the infant. The production of milk requires a high level of prolactin, however it could slow down in cases of improper breastfeeding. There are cases in which the milk produced is not secreted, even though the prolactin level remains high.
Normally, babies breastfeed only three times within 24 to 48 hours after birthd. The frequency increases on day fivev and decreases on day seven or eight.
In order to encourage breastfeeding, mothers should refrain from placing a pacifier in the mouth of their babies as it hinders the breastfeeding process. It is interesting to note that mother’s milk is the purest and most sterile milk for babies. Poisoning is highly unlikely even if the mother is infected with a disease. Breast milk could be given as frequently as possible and as long as the baby needs it. Factors like confusion, fear, pain, embarrassment and anxiety could hinder the production of milk.
Women should totally avoid smoking and drinking alcohol during and after their pregnancies. Breast feeding is not merely about mutually exclusive benefits for mother and baby, as it has considerable impact on society. mothers must understand that babies have the right to receive nothing but the best source of nutrition. Any other food apart from breast milk is not encouraged, except under certain circumstances.

An extraordinary speech that silenced the world at a United Nations meeting. A speech on the environment and how we must do our part to save Mother Nature. We do not have time anymore – we NEED to ACT. It is built in us, so why waste more time? Do we only realise when a child speaks the hard truth? Let us all do our part – for us, our future, their future.

Animals are abused in slaughterhouses. There is only one way to stop that, go vegetarian. This is a video I made about vegetarianism and veganism and animals. The pictures belong to either Peta, Peta2, or Google. The song is Everything by Lifehouse. Add me on Facebook: Nellyanne Elizabeth Nash 😀 and join my group MaybeGreenLuvvIt & if you want, like my animal rights page: Animal Rights MaybeGreenLuvvIt. I made all of the names my username here on YouTube so you could remember them easily. Save the Planet, go vegetarian 🙂
