SUCCESSFUL BREASTFEEDING POLICY
Breast milk has many benefits and therefore a successful breastfeeding policy is very important.
  • Breast milk has excellent nutritional content and is easily digested.
  • It is always ready and economical.
  • It is the most natural and fresh food.
  • It is always clean and germ-free.
  • It protects the newborn baby against diseases.
  • It has a positive effect on the baby’s intelligence development and intellectuality.
  • Breastfeeding helps to establish a special bond between mother and baby. It protects the health of the mother and baby.
Breastfeeding should be delivered within the first half-hour after birth and the baby should be fed “only breast milk” for the first 6 months. Breastfeeding should continue for up to 2 years in addition to starting supplementary foods after 6 months.
Colostrum is the thick yellowish milk that the mother produces during the first few days after birth. It has a protective effect against allergies and infections. It cleans the intestines and helps them mature. It contains growth factors. It is rich in vitamins A and C.
Milk production in the mother is completely dependent on the mother’s thoughts, feelings, and sensations. For this reason, it is important to keep the mother with the baby day and night and to support the baby to breastfeed whenever he/ she wants.
We regularly inform all healthcare providers about our current written policy regarding breastfeeding and train our personnel on this subject at regular intervals. Our policy includes these items;
  • A written policy on breastfeeding should be fixed and reported to all healthcare professionals at regular intervals.
  • All healthcare professionals should be trained in line with this policy.
  • Pregnant women should be informed about the benefits and methods of breastfeeding.
  • In the first hour after birth, babies should be encouraged to start breastfeeding by making skin contact with their mothers.
  • Mothers should be shown how to breastfeed and how they can maintain their milk secretion when they are separated from their babies.
  • Unless considered medically necessary, no food or drink other than breast milk should be given to newborns.
  • A regulation that will ensure that the mother and baby stay together for 24 hours should be affirmed.
  • Breastfeeding should be encouraged whenever the baby asks.
  • Pacifiers should not be given to breastfed babies.
  • Mothers should be informed about the health organizations and mother support groups they can apply to so that they can solve the problems they may encounter, and have their babies and themselves checked.
  • International food code methods should be adopted and implemented in all areas of the institution.
