“For mothers who cannot breastfeed for health reasons, it is better to consult a family doctor for a safe alternative than to have to feed their babies with undernourished cow’s milk,” he advised in a study titled the National Family Health Survey.
Sesikaran added, giving cow’s milk should be avoided in the first year of a baby’s life. According to him, giving cow’s milk is very inappropriate, unsafe and inadequate in terms of its nutritional content.
Meanwhile, breast milk is proven to have properties because it is enriched with nutrients, vitamins and minerals, including antibodies that protect babies from diseases that may be life threatening.
Breast milk is widely recommended for new mothers because it is enriched with nutrients, vitamins and minerals, including antibodies that protect babies from various deadly diseases.
The benefits of breastmilk are indeed extraordinary and have been proven from various studies.
“Apart from minimizing the risk of diarrhea, breast milk also protects babies from allergic reactions such as eczema,” he explained.
Data from survey reports indicate that many mothers stop breastfeeding prematurely. Only 69 percent of babies under two months are still breastfed. “At the age of 2-3 months, 51 percent of babies are breastfed and at the age of 4-5 months it drops to only 28 percent,” he said.
Fortunately, the Food Standards and Safety Association of India has asked manufacturers of infant formula to limit the use of certain microorganisms such as e. Coli, staphylococcus aureus, shigella and salmonella, and yeast and fungi in pasteurized cow’s milk.
This policy is deemed necessary because milk from healthy cows can still contain a number of bacteria that can contaminate hundreds of times when stored for some time at normal temperatures.
