Support breastfeeding

 
Breast milk is widely acknowledged as the gold standard for infant nutrition due to the fact that it provides all the necessary elements for optimal growth and development.

It has nutritional, immunological, biochemical, anti-allergic, anti-infective, intellectual, developmental, psychological, psychosocial, economic and environmental benefits for the mother and/or her infant.

Exclusive breast-feeding is advocated as the sole source of nutrition for the first six months of an infant’s life.

It is found that a lack of knowledge regarding breast-feeding is identified as having a great influence on the decision-making process of a mother and is therefore one of the key issues that should be addressed to empower mothers with sufficient knowledge to make an optimal infant-feeding decision.

The key to the best breastfeeding practices is continued day-to-day support, guidance and motivation for the breastfeeding mother within her home and in the community.

Need support and guidance for breastfeeding? Please feel free to join our weekly informal breastfeeding support group (no cost) on Fridays @ 10 am at Zest Restaurant at Ilanga Mall.

Here you will get the support you need to breastfeed, at the same time you might meet some good friends and enjoy a lovely cup of tea or coffee.

Call Natalie Grobler if you need any information with regards to the breastfeeding support sessions or for any breastfeeding concerns: 071 246 0357
