Donald Trump defends USA position against worldwide breastfeeding resolution

Donald Trump defends USA position against worldwide breastfeeding resolution

World Breastfeeding Week is celebrated during the first week in August every year in more than 170 countries to encourage breastfeeding and improve the health of babies around the world.

"Formula is the same that you give a newborn infant as you're giving a one-year-old, and human milk is a lovely, amazing, diverse, biological substance that changes every minute of the day for the child", said Dr. Mitchell.

"What the World Health Organization is trying to do is help women achieve their own breastfeeding goals, and unfortunately those goals conflict with goals of the dairy industry", Stuebe said.

Surprise and disappointment continued to register this week over reported USA opposition to an worldwide resolution to encourage breastfeeding.

These days, the United States is on the outside looking in when it comes to global consensus on many things: Climate change, the Iran deal, and breastfeeding.

Trump wrote, "The U.S. strongly supports breast feeding but we don't believe women should be denied access to formula. Many women need this option because of malnutrition and poverty", Trump tweeted.

A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services, in an email to the Times, defended the administration's stance.

Moms Rising, a group trying to achieve economic security for mothers in the United States, called the American government's move "stunning and shameful", adding that "We must do everything we can to advocate for public policies that support and empower breastfeeding moms". "Neither is the availability of infant formula", said Sullivan.

Even in case of orphaned babies, Arts says it is better to encourage wet nursing before resorting to formula.

"The existence of infant formula is not in question here". A breastfeeding advocate confirmed the report to RT, stating that losing money would be a "big deal" for poor countries. In 2018, it grew 4%, particularly in low- and middle-income countries.

"There are major political, economic and social factors that shape breastfeeding patterns in global settings", Palmquist said. The Coastal Health District is committed to helping mothers breastfeed their babies because breastfeeding is so important for good health. "They may have to work away from their infants and rely on others to care and feed their infants". Its many health benefits matter both for newborn and mom.

Though high quality, safely prepared substitutes can provide adequate nutrition for infants, emphasis on breastfeeding stretches back through decades of concern from health experts and officials that milk-substitute makers were causing harm with their marketing strategies.

In the USA, the American Academy of Pediatrics policy on breastfeeding is one of its most accessed policies.

During the first year of life an infant is exposed to many foods and eating experiences that lay the foundation for lifelong nutritional habits.

Breastfeeding is increasingly popular in the United States. The CDC found that only about half of all babies are still being breastfed at six months. "Breastfeeding should continue alongside complementary foods for up to two years", the position statement recommends. Perez-Escamilla is also a scientific adviser to the World Health Organization on the topic of breastfeeding. It is also beneficial for mothers, leading to less risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, ovarian cancer, and breast cancer. She said she talked to her boss, a man with no children of his own, about how she wanted to breastfeed.

"Mothers require more than just encouragement to breastfeed", Palmquist said.
