Scientific studies say that human milk provides newborns with the most comprehensive nourishment. The ideal combination of nutrients and antibodies that newborns need to flourish is provided through breastfeeding.
According to medical research, breastfed babies develop in a healthier way and are much less likely to develop chronic conditions like diabetes, childhood cancers, or SIDS than kids who never get breast milk. Global pediatric societies and medical experts advise mothers to breastfeed their babies exclusively for the first six months (at least) of their lives, then to continue breastfeeding while introducing complementary foods until the baby is 12 months old. Post which, the feeding can continue for as long as both the mother and the child desire.
At Dr. Soliman Fakeeh Hospital, our mother and child care experts actively promote the idea of breastfeeding as a responsibility rather than a choice. It has been shown that breastfeeding has several benefits for both - the mother's and child's health. It is the baby's natural way of feeding, and both the mother and the child learn and bond this way during the first few days or weeks following birth.
To assist with this learning process, DSFH offers various breastfeeding support programs. These programs help the parents understand the benefits of breastfeeding, how milk production works, we also assist them with helpful tips, as well as food and medication consultations.
