This was reiterated by Andre Mama Fouda, at the launch of the 17th World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) in Cameroon. Organized by the World Health Organization (WHO) this week to commemorate the Innocenti Declaration on the Protection, Promotion and Support of Breastfeeding signed by WHO and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in August 1990, was well-designed once more-to educate and support mothers on the benefits of this practice for the infant.
Statistics that do not leave the government as indifferent as the main stakeholders. Although there are some women who explicitly refuse to breastfeed their child and those who are below the recommended six months, as Cecile Amougou, say they do willingly, even going beyond the recommended period. Student in first-class A4 (German) in a private school in Yaounde, the young mother feels no shame to admit to, even if she and her husband think it is still time to wean the child.
The reasons why each one does, are not the same. Rachel Mary is the mother of two boys with the youngest aged three. I reduce the risk of food poisoning.
Indeed, an accountant in a public company, this 34 year old woman indexes working hours and forced back and forth to breastfeed her child in the first months of his birth. In my quest, I left my son in the care of my cousin when done feeding. But I had to go every two hours to give the breast, which was not evident. I bought a breast pump piston when he was two months. As my breasts were engorged, the pressure was painful and it took time to fill the bottle.
