Mother… someone who is responsible for our existence. Our first teacher, our first friend, our first guide. Right from carrying us to shaping us to who we are today, mothers have a crucial role in all our lives. The importance of a mother’s breast milk is huge. It is the baby’s first food and it’s unmatched by any other first food. It constitutes proper physical and mental development. It gives all the necessary nutrients and essential elements required for a child’s growth. It’s sad to learn that a lot of places in India do not promote breast milk consumption and rather discard it away. Such an uneducated mindset can give significant harm to the offspring.
