Kaisa rin ng ilang local at Hollywood celebrity mommies ang mga ordinaryong nanay pagdating sa pagdiriwang ng World Breastfeeding Week.

Tulad na lamang ni Anne Curtis na kumbinsidong ang exclusive breastfeeding ang pinaka-epektibong pagpapakain sa mga newborn baby hanggang sa mag-dalawang taong gulang na ang mga ito.

Ito aniya ang dahilan kaya patuloy na titiyagain ang pagpapasuso sa ngayo’y five months old baby nila ni Erwan Heusaff.

Women all across the globe are celebrating #WorldBreastfeedingWeek (Big hugs to all the mummas)🤱🏻 And this month, marks the 5th month of my ebf journey. I will share that it wasn’t an easy start (everyone has their own journey), but I didn’t give up because I know the benefits of breastmilk for babies. I wanted to give my little one the best nutrition I could ❤️ EBF is the most effective, complete & sustainable way of feeding babies from 0-6 months. If BF is continued beyond 2yo w/ giving babies appropriate & clean food from 6mon, this will help immune system, cognitive skills & brain development. In the Philippines, the entire month of August is declared as Breastfeeding Awareness Month. The theme for this year’s BF awareness month ay “I-BIDA ang Pagpapasuso Tungo sa Wais at Malusog na Pamayanan,” at may apat na mensahe ang temang ito para sa pagpapasuso ngayong panahong laganap ang COVID-19. 1st, “B” ay “bawal magpasuso nang walang mask kung may sintomas o exposure sa COVID-19.” Please remember that one cannot get COVID from breastmilk. The virus is transmitted through droplets or air. If moms are not sure of their COVID status or they have symptoms or are exposed to COVID, it is a must to wear a mask. It is important to practice & maintain the Infection Prevention & Control (IPC) measures at home & in the community.   2nd, “I” ay “i-sanitize ang mga kamay bago magpasuso.” Please ensure that moms are practicing good hygiene, hand washing, cleaning their bodies before their babies latch/feed. 3rd, “D” ay para sa “distansya ng isang metro mula sa iba kung magpapasuso,” or the practice physical distancing. 4th, “A” alamin ang mga tamang impormasyon tungkol sa pagpapasuso” especially now that there are several sources of information: we have to know the right sources. Breastfeeding will also minimize trash, garbage or waste. This will help preserve our healthy environment. From myself, @unicefphils & Department of Health, happy breastfeeding awareness month!💙 I just wanted to add – to the mamas who truly tried their best but BF didn’t work for them, you do you. Making sure your baby is nourished is what matters the most ❤️

Para naman sa 27-year-old actress na si Max Collins, “magical yet physically draining” ang kanyang karanasan kaya hanga siya sa mga ina na mayroong kambal na pinapasuso.

Aniya, kakaunti lamang ang lumalabas na breastmilk nito pero gagawing inspirasyon ang mga kapwa nanay na hindi sumusuko.

Since its world breastfeeding week, I'd like to share my journey with you thus far. It's been CRAAAAZY I honestly don't know how mamas go on breastfeeding for years, or with twins! Yes, it's a magical, intimate experience to have with your child, but it's also physically and emotionally draining. 😅 I had a difficult time during the first two weeks of breastfeeding, my milk ducts were clogged most of the time and it was difficult getting the milk out and once I got over that stump, a new challenge arrived! I was (and still am) having quite a difficult time producing enough milk for my baby (who feeds nonstop around the clock) but I'm so thankful for all the support I've been getting from family and friends who have had similar hardships – especially one friend in particular who shared her milk stash with Skye. ♥️ Breast milk is such a blessing for our babies during this pandemic, helping build their immune system and protect them against illnesses (just incase you didn't know). That being said, breastfeeding isn't for every momma and that's OK! I grew up on formula and turned out fine. This week let's celebrate every mother's own unique breastfeeding journey. 🤍 How precious mother's milk truly is, that it should also be celebrated in the form of art! If you swipe the photo you can see one-of-a-kind jewellry and coasters made by @irina_doula @sacredelementsjewellery using my breast milk, bits of my placenta, and Skye's umbilical cord. How beautiful, no? ✨ *nursing bra from @valiannestrends

Kamakailan lang nang ibinida ng American TV plus size model na si Ashley Graham ang kanyang breastfeeding skills at plano itong ipagpatuloy sa mas matagal na panahon.

Nag-post pa ito mismo ng maiksi ngunit malinaw na video habang nagpapasuso sa 6 months old niyang si baby Isaac.

Proud din si Graham kahit minsan ay gumagamit ng breast pump pero ito aniya ay kasabay ng pagsagot sa mga email kaugnay sa trabaho.

Kung maaalala, naging tampok si Ashley sa 2018 Miss Universe coronation sa Thailand kung saan kinoronahan ang Pinay bet na si Catriona Magnayon Gray, habang siya ay behind-the-scenes host.

Una nang inanunsyo ng Department of Health (DOH) ang tema ng Breastfeeding Awareness Month na “I-BIDA ang Pagpapasuso Tungo sa Wais at Malusog na Pamayanan.”

Katumbas nito ang apat na mensahe para sa pagpapasuso pa rin sa gitna ng coronavirus pandemic sa bansa.

Una pa rin dito ang letrang “B” o “bawal” magpasuso nang walang mask kung may sintomas o exposure sa deadly virus.

Kahit kasi wala namang banta ng virus sa gatas ng ina, may posibilidad na tumalsik ang laway kung walang suot na face mask.

Ang “I” ay “i-sanitize ang mga kamay bago magpasuso.”

Pangatlo ang “D” o “distansya ng isang metro mula sa iba kung magpapasuso.”

Panghuli ang A- “alamin ang mga tamang impormasyon tungkol sa pagpapasuso.”
