Breast Feeding will help women in regaining form after child birth and look them beautiful, Tamil Nadu Tourism Secretary V Irai Anbu said today. Speaking at the valedictory of the World Breast Feeding Week, organised by the SRM Medical College Hospital and Research Centre at its campus in suburban Kattankulathur, he described as ‘myth’ women would lose their beauty if they breast fed their children. ‘’It’s a myth their beauty will be affected if women breast fed their child. On the contrary, breast feeding will make women beautiful and help in regain shape,’’ he said. Stating that there was lack of awareness on breast feeding, he said working women were not feeding their child citing occupational constraints and that their body beauty would be affected. Highlighting the significance of breast feeding, Dr Irai Anbu said if a mother breast feds her child for one and a half years continuously it would prevent pregnancy, besides preventing breast cancer, reported UNI. ‘’Further the fat content in the body will disappear and breast feeding will serve as an anti-dote in preventing neo-natal deaths.’’ Promising all help from the Tourism department in spreading the message about the importance of breast feeding, Dr Irai Anbu said several present day children were suffering from childhood depression due to lack of warmth and affection from mother and attention. ‘’If these children had been breast fed such psychological problems can be overcome.’’
