    Your Baby and You:Achieving Successful Lactation in Africa
  • Nestle Boycott
    Led women to believe that infant formula is more nutritious than breast milk
    Fake nurses giving limited free samples and false information
    1977: International boycott against Nestle corporation
    WHO’s resolution: breastfeeding until 6 months old
  • Breast Milk:
    Infant Formula:
    Sterile
    No preparation needed
    Manually expressed
    Can be stored if needed
    Decreased infant allergies
    No immune protection
    Harder to digest
    Contamination risk
    Water
    Bottles/nipples
    Formula itself
    Expensive
    Improper dilution ratio
    Breast Milk vs. Infant Formula
  • Bad Alternatives
    Cow or goats milk:
    Lack adequate vitamins and minerals for the baby
    High levels of indigestible protein
    Avoid grain porridges:

  • Proper Breastfeeding Positions
    Lying Down:
    Great for night-time feedings, but make sure the baby’s head is parallel to the nipple.
    Football Hold:
    Great for mothers with large breasts, twins, have trouble with latching on, and/or small, premature babies.
    Cradle Hold:
    Most common position, universal for most moms and babies
  • Breast Feeding Key Points
    Begin right away after birth to ensure milk letdown and that your baby receives colostrum
    Do NOT stop-continue as long as you can.
    Cleanliness will decrease the chances of infections such as mastitis.
    Supply vs. Demand: as your baby ages, continue breast feeding but also add in other supplements

    Anemia:
    common during pregnancy
    increases hemorrhage and prolonged labor
    Reduces immunity
