Living in the modern world with everything are so practical and instant, impact on people's point of view, and their lifestyles. In order to fulfill her own needs for lifestyle, increasing family income, or to support her husband, a mother then became a career woman. They sometimes overlook the benefits of breastfeeding, or do a nursing career in their own home.
' Best career for a woman is to become a housewife, because behind a successful man, there's an amazing woman. '
I guess the term above is a long time history. Nowadays, women and men are equal in positions. Women can do what men do, even to some jobs that not all men can't do. Too many very happy singles career women in Japan and Singapore, are made both countries low on birth rate.
Most of career women who gave birth, only got a small leave of absence for a maximum of 1-3 months. With 1-3 months on leave, they often not used it optimally. Most of them were too lazy to breastfeed their babies. A baby blues syndrom often infected on a lazy mother.
They choose practical way by giving their children a cow or soya formula milk, and hired a nanny. Though the period of leave should be utilized by breastfeeding, and nursing her baby alone.
Why should you suffer carrying your baby for 9 months, if in the end, your child called the nanny as a mother?
Generally, a breastfeeding initiation is started 15 minutes after a baby born. Breastfeeding should be exclusively for 3 to 6 months, because of age 0 to 6 months are infant's golden ages. At the age which a baby's growth required essential nutrients for its body resistance. All of them contained in all mothers breast milk, not only from baby's own mother. If a mother can not breastfeed her own baby due to some reasons, there're no reasons to give their babies a formula milk derived from animals.
' Son of man must be fed on a human rather than animal milk. '
A baby who consumed breast milk would be more immune to diseases, like pneumonia, diarrhea, and cancer. An exclusive breastfeeding is also proven to suppress an inherited allergy, cause by genetic. Infant allergy is widely occurred in children younger than 2 years, especially under 3 months. For a mother, the benefits of breastfeeding beside to prevent breast cancer are, minimizing the possibility of a mother suffering from diabetes, osteoarthritis, and osteoporosis.
Based on my own experience, my wife gave both my children an exclusive breastfeeding. For my elder daughter, it was until her aged 12 months, but for her younger brother, it was until my son aged 2 years old. Though my wife milk were no longer an exclusive anymore, and also useful for my son nutrients needs. Well, I guess you know why do boys like it most, don't you?
