Please Support Our latest Campaign on the Benefits of Breastfeeding
Diversity House is currently spearheading an impactful breastfeeding campaign that emphasises the many advantages it offers for both infants and mothers. This initiative sheds light on the vital role breastfeeding plays in nurturing the health and well-being of both these groups and is part of our Community Fund and support of the UN Global Compact.
For infants, the benefits of breastfeeding are multifaceted and remarkable. First and foremost, it acts as a powerful shield against ailments such as diarrhoea, ear infections, pneumonia, and asthma. Moreover, breastfeeding significantly reduces the likelihood of obesity and the development of allergies in infants. One of the most compelling advantages is the decreased risk of sudden infant death syndrome, illustrating the profound protective impact that breastfeeding can have on a child’s life.
In addition to the advantages bestowed upon infants, mothers also reap substantial rewards from breastfeeding. Notably, breastfeeding emerges as a pivotal factor in lowering the risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer for mothers. This remarkable health benefit highlights the profound impact that this natural practice can have on a woman’s long-term well-being. Breastfeeding is also a proven stress reducer, offering mothers a valuable means of alleviating the pressures that often accompany parenthood. By preventing postpartum depression and mitigating the risk of type 2 diabetes, breastfeeding becomes a cornerstone of maternal health, promoting emotional stability and physical vitality.
