Discussions and Frequently Asked Questions

 Breastfeeding immediately after delivery helps both the mother and baby.

Key Response: Early initiation of breastfeeding helps to build bonding and attachment between mother and baby. It increases milk production and hence milk secretion. Early initiation of breastfeeding helps prevent postpartum complications like hemorrhage (in the mother) and hypothermia (in the baby).


 The colour of the first milk is yellow and it looks dirty.

Key Response: Colostrum is very nutritious and helps protect the baby against infections and illnesses.


 How will delaying breastfeeding for a few days affect the baby's health?

Key Response: The first milk (colostrum) from the mother is the baby's "first natural protection" and not giving that to the baby will deprive her/him of this benefit.


 How can an ANM/ASHA/AWW help after the baby is born?

Key Response: A skilled birth attendant will help ensure timely initiation of breastfeeding.
