Exclusive or partial breastfeeding

Exceptional breastfeeding means that the baby does not receive any other nutrition than breast milk, does not even take a pacifier. If a child is given vitamins or ritual food in small quantities, either water or juice, this is almost exclusive breastfeeding.

Partial breastfeeding means that the child is partially breastfed, partially artificially fed.

The best and most reliable way of feeding is exclusive breastfeeding.
Usually, even in the first days after birth, the child needs nothing more, up to about four to six months old. If the child is given any other food, even if in small quantities, or he sucks a pacifier, some of the benefits of breastfeeding may be lost. The child may have diarrhea or allergies, and the mother is more likely to get pregnant again.

However, partial breastfeeding is still better than no one at all.

Exclusive or partial breastfeeding

  1. Breastfeeding: the onset, duration, and practice of exclusive breastfeeding
    Due to the lack of comprehensive and comparable data and unified international definitions, it is difficult to make any general statements about the prevalence of breastfeeding in the WHO European Region. Data on the percentage of children who are breastfed are shown in Fig. 8, taken from various sources (27). These data must be approached carefully: survey methods
  2. Breast or natural feeding
    Breast milk. With breastfeeding, the child receives the optimum quality and quantity of both the main nutrients and micronutrients, which are important for full growth and development. The composition of milk nutrients dynamically adapts to the changing needs of the child as it grows. Adequacy of provision can be violated only with fairly gross changes in the food
  3. Long story, or why prolonged breastfeeding is becoming more common
    In 1997, the American Academy of Pediatrics, in the recommendations for breastfeeding, stated that breastfeeding should be continued "for at least twelve months, after which by mutual consent as much as you like."

  5. Organization of breastfeeding in the maternity hospital OR IF SOMETHING GOES NOT AT ALL, AS WOULD LIKE TO
    When a pregnant woman dreams about how she will live with her baby, she always seems to have some ideal situation: easy childbirth, first breastfeeding as described in books, no separation, the child is always with her mother and therefore always silent. Reality often does not at all correspond to this beautiful picture. Childbirth does not always go the way it seemed.
    We often wonder why some mothers do not breastfeed. From our point of view, breastfeeding is a natural extension of the relationship that began in the womb. Maybe some women are convinced that breastfeeding does not really matter. Having studied Chapter 1, you will understand the benefits of breastfeeding for both the mother and the baby. We believe that if you rate

    All babies should be exclusively breastfed from birth to approximately 6 months of age, but in any case during the first 4 months of life. It is preferable to continue breastfeeding after the first year of life, and in populations with a high prevalence of infections, the continuation of breastfeeding for the whole second
  10. Breastfeeding support
    POLICIES AIMED AT SUPPORTING BREASTFEEDING In 1989, the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children's Fund issued a joint statement on the role of mother support services in the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding. This statement provides the most up-to-date scientific knowledge and practical experience in organizing the EB in the form of accurate, universally acceptable recommendations
  11. Breastfeeding Alternatives
    Usually breastfeeding is the best way to feed infants. Nevertheless, there are situations when it may be preferable or it is necessary to replace breast milk with any alternative. In addition to the contraindications briefly described above, circumstances arise where, despite all efforts to continue breastfeeding, the mother cannot maintain lactation for
