Commissioner for Gender Affairs, Enugu State, Peace Nnaji, has urged mothers to reserve their breastmilk for their babies and not husbands.
The commissioner stated this in a remark at a UNICEF media dialogue with select journalists from South East, South South and parts of North Central.
According to her, it is wrong for men to be sharing their wife’s breastmilk with the babies.
“Breastmilk is meant for babies and not their fathers. Mothers should stop feeding their husbands with their breastmilk, it’s for their babies.
It’s wrong for mothers not to br*stfeed their babies for fear of having flat or saggy breast. The commissioner urged mothers to practice exclusive breastfeeding of their babies for at least the first six months after birth because of its numerous benefits.
She also expressed her displeasure with some musicians who release albums that tend to tease sagged breasts, arguing that if a woman’s breasts are flat in the course of breastfeeding, it was a noble thing.
