Breast feeding :-Blessing for children
This is very bad for children that many women and mothers affected by the urbanization think that their figures and beauty would be spolied, there carrier will be collaspe, breast will not look good and etc. if they breast fed thier new babies up to the age of two or three months. it is merely 20 %. and the % of mothers. who suckled their babies upto the age of six months is still lower.
The IMR(Infant Mortality Rate) can be appereciably brought down, if the babies are breast-fed upto the age of one year or more. Breast feeding is a double blessing. On the one hand it protects the infants form attacks of diarrhea, asthama, anemia and many other dangerous diseases. it eliminates the chances of a mother being affected by breast or ovarian cancer later in life. Experts on the subjects are of the opinion that if a baby remained close to the mother and suckled her, there skin to skin contact developed a bond between the two, which went a long way in the child's development.
Modern researches have proved beyond any shadow of doubt that breast feeding is the best and most natural protection against infections.
Mothers often think breast-feeding as a botheration because of thier false assumptions and wrong -founded notions. the health care and baby-food producing companies are also to blame to some extent for this sorry state of affairs. To promote, their infant food and other related products, they have been advertisement thorough various media highlighting the importance of bottle feeding only.
It is imperative that various agencies. institutions and government departmetns. NGOs, INGOs related with mother and child welfare and social health, rise to the occasion and educate the women about various positive advantages of breast-feeding . they should bring home the truth among Nepali women that there is no substitute to breast feeding.

Here, take a note that when your baby breastfeeds, pay attention to when he use to swallows and when he pauses. Sometimes you can notice or hear him swallow or see his jaw moving. When your baby gets full, the pauses become longer. when the baby stops swallowing, take him off from your breast . Now's the time to burp him. By allowing your baby to finish one breast before switching, your child will get the rich, high-Calorie hind milk that comes at the end of each feeding. when your child burps, then try him offering the second breast. You can see if your baby's hungry he is going to take the second breast. if not, offer that breast first for the next feeding. if you feel overly full on that side, pump or express enough milk to make yourself comfortable.
And take a note of that a Few babies mostly develop a favorite side, preferring to nurse on that side and nursing rarely or not at all on the other. After breastfeeding is well established, this tendency is harmless. Your breast will adjust to produce different levels of milk according to the frequency with which each is nursed.
