Stop Breastfeeding Your Husbands, Milk Is For Your Babies - Honorable Peace

The Enugu State Commissioner for Gender Affairs, Honorable Peace Nnaji, has warned nursing mothers to keep their breast milk for their babies and stop breastfeeding their husbands.

The Honorable Peace made this statement during a UNICEF media discussion with some journalists that were selected from the South East, North Central, and South-Southern parts of the country.

She said that it's not right for husbands to share the breast milk of their wives with their babies. She explained how breast milk is normally meant for their babies and not for their husbands.

According to the Commissioner, mothers should stop breastfeeding their husbands with what rightfully belongs to their babies.

It is not right for mothers to avoid breastfeeding their babies because they don't want them to sag.

Peace Nnaji also advised mothers to try and breastfeed their newborns for no less than six months after delivery because it has a lot of health benefits.

This has been a very difficult thing to do for many nursing mothers. Many of them prefer to breastfeed their husbands because they enjoy doing it.

However, the baby needs to be breastfed during the first six months so that he or she will not have stunted growth or health implications when they grow up.
