Groups urges men to support exclusive breastfeeding

As part of activities to commemorate the 2017 World breastfeeding week, members of Save the Children, a non – governmental organisation committed to the wellbeing of children, took to the streets to sensitize the general public especially men on the need to support exclusive breastfeeding.
The walk, which was held in partnership with Stop Diarrhoea Initiative (SDI) and Lagos State government with support from Reckitt Benckiser, took place on the streets of Somolu and Bariga.

Men’s involvement according to the organizers will facilitate a high level of compliance to the practice.

Speaking at the event, David Atamewalen noted that the level of compliance of exclusive breastfeeding is still a concern saying that as at 2014, the rate of compliance remains at 24 percent.

In collaboration with his submission, Folake Kuti, Advocacy Adviser, Save the Children, said why they are involving men is that they need their support in the area of provision of good foods.

On the economic benefit of breastfeeding, Atamewalen said that money one would have spent in taking a child to the hospital when they are down with diarrhea will be saved.
