Why Men Should ​Encourage The​Ir Wives To Engage In Exclusive Breastfeeding – Commissioner



By David Abakpa

Lagos State Commissioner for Information, Steve Ayorinde, ​has advised men ​to encourage their wives to engage in exclusive breastfeeding.

​He gave this advice at a Breastfeeding Awareness Campaign organised by ​the Lagos ​chapter of the Nigeria Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ)​.

A former NAWOJ President and Director, Public Affairs, Lagos Ministry of Information, ​ Mrs Toro Oladapo, who represented the commissioner, said men should ​encourage the​ir wives to engage in exclusive breastfeeding which is vital during the first six months of life.

“Nothing is natural like breast milk,” he said, noting that human milk is better for babies than animal milk.

“Thank you so much for promoting the essence of womanhood​.​

“The media should help ensure mothers are breastfeeding to raise a healthy nation.

“You will all agree with me that children that are breastfed distinguish themselves academically,’’ he said.

    I think men first give their wife’s breast a break.
    It’s not easy breastfeeding two people.
