Breast feeding week 1st to 7th august

Breast feeding and work, lets make it work!

Breast feeding is the most important source of nutrition in the first 6 months, and should be the only source of nutrition. All the vitamins, minerals, and fluid intake that are required in the first 6 months of life are present in this milk. The biggest problem for mothers of this working generation, however, is how to administer this milk. As more and more importance is being put on career, and as women need to compete with men daily in the work place, they are not able to get enough leave or time to give enough importance to breast feeding. Also, in India, maternity leave is not available as it is in other countries in this generation, and enough breaks arent given for the mother to be able to feed the child while working simultaneously.Balancing work and family life including breastfeeding is increasingly necessary for womens right and a strong healthy and vibrant workforce. Is there a way to focus on both? Yes we can………

Breast feeding week 1st to 7th august
