Mother’s milk is a strong shield against many diseases in children
Nourishing mother’s milk has not been discovered until now, nor is it possible for newborns to breastfeed within an hour, avoiding breastfeeding water, ghee, honey, tea and above.
Recent research has revealed that babies whose mothers breastfeed have higher intelligence and IQ than other children.
Speaking at a function organized by the Pakistan Pediatric Association (PPA), the speakers said that breast milk is beneficial not only to the baby but also to the mental and physical health of the mother herself. He said that nutritionally lactating breast milk has not been discovered until now, nor is it possible in the future.
The death rate of newborn babies in Pakistan is one of the highest in the world which is mainly due to the mother not breastfeeding her children.
Speakers said that mother’s milk is white blood, a natural source of transferable diseases in children, but sadly, breastfeeding rates in our country are decreasing day by day. Mortality rates are increasing in children.
She said that mothers should breastfeed their babies within one hour of birth and only breastfeed for six months, followed by soft foods with mother’s milk.
Breast milk immediately after birth is extremely beneficial for infants, which are found in a variety of antibiotics and proteins, but mothers do not treat their babies as they needed.
Speakers said Allah described the efficacy of breastfeeding in the Holy Quran fourteen hundred years ago in the verses of Surah Al-Baqarah and Surah Al-Ahqaf: Translation: And mothers should breastfeed their children for two years which are being proven today by modern research. He added that newborns should be avoided by giving milk, ghee, honey, tea, and top milk in addition to milk.
