모유수유, 어린이의 생존률을 높이는 확실한 수단

2006.11.17
They’re out on parade -- fat babies, round babies with chubby thighs and chubby cheeks. all bright-eyed, breastfed babes. Proud mothers hold them up like prizes. . . and that’s what they are. In a country with the highest child mortality rates in the world and the one of lowest rates of exclusive breastfeeding, Sierra Leone is rallying mothers to do what comes naturally, especially right after giving birth : Gladys Gborie, District Head Midwife (Speaking Krio) "As soon as you give birth to your baby the child must be breast fed. Breast milk has got medicine and lots of things inside that is very healthy for your baby and strengthens him. When you breast feed your baby, he or she grows up strong and healthy, when the baby gets sick he won’t just die." Even chiefs in Sierra Leone are now pulling out all the stops to boost breastfeeding and child survival. Mothers are given awards for breastfeeding their babies exclusively for six months. It’s become a real hit. Chief Steven Kamanda, Kono "What is happening here is breast feeding. We have counseled them to stick to breastfeeding, which is a natural nutrient. We think this will help and we have seen results. As you can look around and you can see babies who have grown really very fine and it has profited us a lot." Tragically, all too often this is what many infants in Sierra Leone look like. Health facilities wrecked by the war, and great distances, mean that nearly a third of under fives here die before their fifth birthday. A big push for child survival is now underway by UNICEF, government and partners. Insecticide treated bed nets, routine immunization, exclusive breastfeeding and growth monitoring are producing more and more roly-poly robust babes. And that -- in a country known largely for the horrors of wars -- has given the midwives in Kono something to bang on about.
