Nutritious complementary foods should then be added while continuing to breastfeed for up to two years or beyond.

In his Breastfeeding Awareness Month Proclamation, Governor Snyder stated that MI is committed to reducing infant mortality and increasing the health of mothers and babies. Breastfeeding allows children to fight ear infections, pneumonia, stomach viruses and diarrhea, lymphoma, leukemia, Crohn's disease, asthma, eczema, diabetes, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Mothers can carry the pump and storage bag to their work place and pump there to keep up their milk supply.

"For infants to survive, grow and develop as they should, they need to be breastfed. Apart from the child, breastfeeding has important benefits for the health of mothers", says Dr. Sachin Jain, Consultant Neonaatologist, Columbia Asia Hospital, Gurgaon.

He also said the newborn babies exclusively need first breast milk within an hour of their birth as it contains nutritious colostrums and antibodies that make them stronger, enhancing immune system and disease resistance capacities.

Sayce said for a successful breastfeeding journey every new mom needs a plan which should include what to do in the first hours following birth, and who they can contact for support. The celebration provides wonderful opportunity of refreshing knowledge or setting agenda for nursing mothers on breastfeeding for a whole week. Thus, here are a few exclusive breast feeding tips to do it right. Breastfeeding also reduces ill health in children, improves their educational potential and probably their earnings as adults.

· Even at night the baby should be breastfed. Very low exclusive breastfeeding rate has persisted among mothers in Nigeria with the National rate at 25% in 2014 (National Nutrition and Health Survey, 2014).

It has set a national target of 15% in exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life.

The City of Ekurhuleni has joined the world community to commemorate the World Breastfeeding Week to promote health and sustainable development. Now is also an opportune time to reverse the rising trends in bottle-feeding that are putting millions of dollars into the pockets of companies that speak laurels of their infant formulas as adequate replacements for breast milk. Stunted growth and childhood malnutrition can be mitigated through better breastfeeding practices as one of its major contributors.
