Known in Ukraine, a pediatrician Eugene Komorowski also known as the presenter of the program “Dr. Komarovsky’s School”. In addition, the physician is still an active user of social networks, which also provides helpful tips for parents regarding children. For example, on his page in Instagram the doctor frequently answers questions that relate to children. In the new edition of the rubrics Dr. Komarovskiy answered the question about how long to breast feed.
“Without exception, respected the Association of pediatricians (both international and national) is unambiguous, categorical and unanimous: exclusive breastfeeding is strongly recommended for the first six months of life. What’s next after six months? This is the second part of the question. Here unanimity is preserved, but the finality and uniqueness less: after six months it is recommended to continue breastfeeding along with complementary foods for 2 years or longer.
At the same time, almost all of the documents with recommendations on the duration of breastfeeding clarify that “feed should as much as wish the mother and child”, that “breastfeeding should continue as long as it is mutually desirable for mother and child”, “duration of breastfeeding is a personal decision for each family.”
As a major explanation of the recommendations of breastfeeding for two years or longer, who drew attention to the fact that in conditions of low hygiene and limited access to adequate food and clean water, prolonged breastfeeding significantly reduces the chances of fatal intestinal infections. Importantly, from the point of view of the author, correct accents — this is the fundamental reason for the debate on the duration of breastfeeding.
Someone focuses on the phrase “continue to two years and longer.” Someone (especially the author) to “personal decision” and “as you wish mother and child.” Breastfeeding should continue as long as it is useful and comfortable for all family members.
Once again I ask — please note the quote (this is the AAP — American Academy of Pediatrics): “exclusive breastfeeding is recommended for 6 months, then breastfeeding in addition to start taking solid food for at least one year. After that, breastfeeding can continue as long as you like mother and child.” As you wish mother And baby! I emphasize again — And, not OR! Ie want to be both!”
We will remind, Komorowski explained to the Ukrainians, they should wear scarves.
Previously portal “Znayu” reported that Komorowski said, why vote for Zelensky.
Also, the portal “Znayu” wrote that Komarovsky taught mothers to measure the temperature.
