Breastfeeding provides young infants with the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development... Women in these countries were led to believe that formula feeding was “the way of the Western World. ” It is sad to say that in Qatar too, there seems to be a trend away from breastfeeding... Breastfeeding offers many benefits to both the baby and mother... Breast milk contains the right balance of nutrients to help babies grow into strong and healthy children... Breast-fed babies have a lower rate of respiratory infections... An added bonus of breast milk is that it is kept clean and readily accessible anywhere without the need for bottles and sterilizing equipment... Ear infections and diarrhea are more common in formula-fed babies who have been shown to have a higher risk of necrotizing enterocolitis, asthma, obesity, and even Type 2 diabetes... Breastfeeding is also beneficial to the mother since certain types of cancer may occur less often in mothers who have breastfed their babies... The experience of breastfeeding is special: health benefits for both mother and baby, cost savings, and last but not the least, joyful bonding between mother and baby... Breastfeeding saves lives... It is an age-old tradition and countries should do everything possible to promote and preserve this good and ancient practice since formula milk cannot match the chemical makeup of human breast milk.
