World Breastfeeding Week 2019: Sameera Reddy has some important advice for new dads

August 06, 2019 | 18:02 IST | CineBuzz |

The breastfeeding week of this year kicked off on August 1st 2019 and many stars took to Social Media to talk about it. Sameera Reddy who became mother for the second time recently had some important message for all the new dads out there.

“New dads and loved ones, listen up! It’s World Breastfeeding Week and this post is for you to know that you can be the biggest support and encouragement to a new mom! A mother may be depressed, lacking in confidence, worried, or stressed and it affects breastfeeding. These factors do not directly affect her milk production, but can interfere with the way in which she responds to her baby. This can result in the baby taking less milk, and failing to stimulate milk production,” she wrote.

Sameera advised loved ones to unconditionally be there for new mothers during this testing time. “Nothing like feeling loved at such an overwhelming time,” she wrote.

The actress also showed some love for new mothers who were not able to produce enough milk. “This could happen due to a pathological reason including endocrine problems or a host of other factors. A few mothers have a physiological low breast-milk production, for no apparent reason, and production does not increase when the breastfeeding technique and pattern improve,” she wrote, adding that they should not be shamed or pressurised for it.

“We need to support all mothers and show love and respect,” she concluded.
