Breastfeeding: Why is it important?

Abstract Submission Deadline : November 30, 2023

Manuscript Submission Deadline : December 25, 2023

Special Issue Description

For newborns, breast milk is the best food. It contains antibodies that aid in preventing several prevalent pediatric ailments, and it is secure and hygienic. Breastmilk continues to supply up to half or more of a child’s nutritional needs during the second half of the first year of life and up to one-third during the second year of life, providing all the energy and nutrients that the infant needs for the first few months of life. Children who are breastfed score higher on IQ tests, are less likely to become overweight or obese and are less likely to develop diabetes in the future. Breast and ovarian cancer risks are lower for women who breastfeed. The international endeavor to increase breastfeeding rates and duration is still being hampered by inappropriate marketing of breast-milk substitutes. Additionally, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the World Health Organization advise exclusively nursing for the first six months or so, followed by a period of continuing breastfeeding and the introduction of supplementary foods until the child is two years old or older.
