Breastfeeding in public?

Breastfeeding is communicated in to public by flashmobs all over China. Each year, the event is held right around National Breastfeeding Awareness Day (May 20th) and always seems to draw quite the crowd.

China has a breastfeeding rate of just 28%, much lower than the rate of ……..most of the rest of the developed world, according to CRI. This has been the case for quite some time now with a decades-long propaganda campaign dissuading Chinese mothers from breastfeeding by milk powder manufacturers blamed for the disparity.

Breastfeeding and this is scientifically proofed is healthe for both, themother and the child. Here are some aspects:

  • Long-term protection, too Breastfeed your baby and you reduce his risk of developing chronic conditions, such as type I diabetes, celiac disease and Crohn’s disease.
  • Less risk of cancer
  • A calorie incinerator
  • Lower SIDS risk andsoon

And of course which is ever so important ist A great way to learn about your baby “You have to read your baby’s ‘satiety cues’ a little better, because unlike with a bottle, you can’t see how much he’s eaten,” Kelly says. “You have to rely on your own instincts and your baby’s behavior to know when your baby is full.”

China deserves credit for acknowledging the Problem that the Country supports milk powder advertisinf rather than supporting breastfeeding. But it’s unlikely an advertising ban will make much of a difference. China’s breastfeeding problems trace back to cultural practices and economic trends that don’t have an easy fix.
