The current state of breastfeeding in the country ...

2007-06-11T00:52:00.000-07:00

The current state of breastfeeding in the country is not just solely the fault of the milk companies. It is also the fault of us health workers. We always want to take the easy way out, the path of least resistance in Ohm's law. But also because most of us do not know what to do when there are problems with breastfeeding. The first being there is no milk. How many of us checks if the baby is correctly latchED on? How many of us know that repeated feedings increase brestmilk supply? I bet all of those midwives who were interviewed in the "Formula for Disaster" DO NOT know what the answerS ARE. So I am asking all the proper authorities, all the breastfeeding experts available and willing, all those concerned about this problem, PLEASE TRAIN US NOT JUST THE BASIC KNOWLEDGE THAT BREASTFEEDING IS THE BEST MILK, BUT HOW TO GO ABOUT COUNSELING THESE MOTHERS' CONCERNS. It's a Filipino health culture, if you do not get a prescription then you are not sick or the doctor is not doing his job. If the health worker doesn't prescribe you formula, he does not know his job, precisely because we do not know how to brestfeed. It's amazing how we have lost it in just fifty years. It is like erasing one Filipino dialect into oblivion. So i repeat my plea for all those concerned policymakers, teach us healthworkers and the mothers.



Good for you guys!
