PHAMBILI WITH BREAST­FEED­ING, PHAMBILI!

Your Baby & Toddler - - LETTERS - PUSELETSO MO­FO­KENG, SOWETO

I re­cently did the sums about how much it costs to raise our bun­dles of joy. This got me won­der­ing why baby for­mula is never on sale.

So I did some in­for­mal re­search. I was sur­prised by the outcome.

To all the moth­ers who are not breast­feed­ing be­cause of dif­fer­ent good rea­sons, I learnt that it is law, en­forced by the de­part­ment of health, that re­tail stores should never have for­mula on sale, ever!

The rea­son is that the de­part­ment is on a mis­sion to pro­mote ex­clu­sive breast­feed­ing for the first six months of your baby’s life, as it is proven to be the best thing for the baby.

I re­ally loved find­ing this out, as I was not even aware. So, I thought I should share this with all the other moms who might also not be aware, just like I wasn’t. En­joy rais­ing those lit­tle an­gels. For­ward with breast­feed­ing, for­ward!
