After visiting a friend with a newly born baby today, I felt so sad and it compelled me to write a short article on breast-feeding habit of young people today.
Spoken to a few young mums before and their responses were :
a) I am still young and their phobia is that they will soon have a sagging pair of ugly breast and nipples, if they let their offsprings consume their milk;
b) I am working and I cannot afford to spend time to change my padings inside my brassiere, as my milk will be dripping during my office hours. Otherwise, it will look embarrasing when fellow working colleagues noticed my wet blouse;
Little did they ever realized how healthy they were because they, themselves have been sucking and snatching their mum's breast once (when they were hungry as a baby) and their own mum had never have such thoughts when feeding them. Perhaps, their mum were bringing them up in a harsh environment when they were indeed poor. Unfortunately, most of today's mum are working and thus, they can afford to provide their young ones with alternatives. Have they ever give it a thought on how these milks were produced.
So, the question is .... how good is the Cow's Milk that they are feeding their young ones today ?
Let me ask you first, whether do you know such facts that :
1) the protein level in cow's milk is said to be 4 times compared to human;
2) it is produced by the cow to feed their calves and not babies. A calf is about 60 kg at birth and with its mother's milk, they are supposed to grow up to a matured weight of 1 ton because of the hormone therein. This is how obesity in our today's children comes from.
Again ... the list will go on again.
We all knew that our body needs to be more on the alkalinity level, in order to stay in better health. Imagine, as a young babe, the calcium 'stolen' from their mums (which is meant for their future bone growth and development) are been used up, for neutralizing the acidity milk that they are fed with. No wonder, some babies were late-walkers because of their weaker bones' structure.
[Colostrum is the first lacteal secretion produced by the mammary gland of a mother prior to the production of milk. Any secretion after the first removal of all, or part, is then termed Transitional Milk. Only colostrum collected from the single first milking within 0-6 hours after birth, maintains nature's perfect balance and highest levels of immunological and body regulating biologically active proteins. As the first food for new life, bovine colostrum is a natural immune system enhancer for good health]. When a baby is born, they have the weakest 'defence system' and are easily vulnerable to sickness through the invasion of bacteria and virus. How are they going to gain a stronger immune system to protect themselves, if without such provision ?
Probably to them, hyper-active children means they are gifted with super-brains and often, their behaviour (without the child's faults) have turned them into little spoilt brats and beyond the toleration of others.
