Dr Juliet Ochi, a pediatrician with the Enugu State University Teaching Hospital (ESUTH), has recommended that babies should be given breast milk for one year for healthy living.

The pediatrician said it was necessary for mothers to feed babies with breast milk for a period of one year because of its natural health benefits.

According to her, breast milk provides the ideal nutrition for babies, because it has everything that babies need to grow such as vitamins, protein and fat.

“It also contains antibodies that help babies to fight off viruses and bacteria as well as lower the risk of having allergies, ear infections and diarrhea.

“Breast milk contains antibodies, which go a long away to reduce illness in babies, it will also reduce frequent visits to hospitals because it makes them healthy,” she said.

Breast milk, according her, usually plays an integral role in strengthening the emotional attachment between a mother and her baby.

“Breastfeeding is naturally designed to ensure maternal-infant interaction and closeness, because nursing mothers are closer to their babies more than bottle-feeding mothers.

Ochi gave this recommendation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Thursday.

“Mothers, who frequently breastfeed their children without restrictions quickly learn to read and understand their babies’ cues,” she said.
