There is a wealth of evidence about the importance of breastfeeding, support for responsive bottle feeding and timing of starting solid food and the difference this can make to both child and maternal obesity levels. Recent government policy on obesity has failed to address the importance of how we feed our babies and early years nutrition. The Government should improve the legal protection and support for breastfeeding, improve availability of caregiving / parental education around introduction of solid foods and feeding responsively. Nearly half of mothers asked for information about medication/medical intervention and impact on breast milk/ breastfeeding. We hope we were able to ensure all these mothers were able to continue feeding their babies if they wished to, since many reported being told to stop breastfeeding unnecessarily. Babies were not put to the breast until 8-12 hours after birth, and formula fed babies were given sterile water for 1 -3 feeds FROM 12 hours old and thereafter an artificial milk made from evaporated milk mixed with carbohydrate.
In Study Session 8, you will meet some signs of these physiological changes in pregnancy again, when you learn how to diagnose whether a woman is pregnant, and how to gather information about her ‘pregnancy history’. Activity of the sweat glands throughout the body usually increases during pregnancy, which causes the woman to perspire more profusely than usual, particularly in hot weather or during physical work. This dark line may appear between the umbilicus (belly-button) and the symphysis pubis ; in some pregnant women it may extend as high as the sternum . It is a hormone-induced excess production of brown material in the skin cells in this area.
It will be lower than in her pre-pregnant state, because the same volume of blood has more space in which to circulate. It explains why iron in the diet, or from iron tablets, is so important during pregnancy. The concentration of red blood cells and haemoglobin will fall because they are more dilute, so the woman’s blood will be slightly anaemic.
The JACEI report on Nestlé and a separate Statement on Nestlé contained factual errors and serious ommissions . For example, they claimed that Nestlé had been responsive to the campaign and that it had stopped more serious violations. This goes in the face of evidence presented by Baby Milk Action and information provided to JACEI by health and development experts and organisations. The Methodist Conference has said concerns over Nestlé malpractice may cause some through conscience to support the boycott.
Many community services have been lost and an increased burden has been placed on an already struggling health visiting workforce. Supporting breastfeeding requires dedicated skills, time and patience often supporting a Mum for several hours on several occasions.

Ideally, how long to breastfeed will be a mutual choice for each mother and baby. It’s not unusual for nursing mothers to feel some nipple tenderness or pain during early pregnancy. Later on, it’s very common for mothers to feel impatient when nursing their older child, also because a drop in their milk supply may make it uncomfortable to feed. This seems to be nature’s way of putting the new baby first, even though nursing doesn’t have any harmful effects on the growing foetus.
