TIJUANA BC (El Sol de Tijuana,Ana Luz Sánchez Aguirre, 5/7/2011) - To reinforce the immune defenses of children, the General Hospital of Tijuana calls upon all mothers of newborn babies to feed them with breast milk. It is the best food for them, in addition to reducing household expenditure for the cost of milk powder and substitutes to enrich it, so said the director of General Hospital of Tijuana, José Manuel Robles Barbosa. In pregnancy, Colostrum is the first substance produced by the mother, rich in minerals and vitamins A, E, K and B12. It is a yellowish liquid very easy to digest and provides a laxative action, which helps eliminate feces produced by the child during gestation. He explained that breast milk is composed of white blood cells and antibodies responsible for protecting the baby from possible intestinal and respiratory infections until their immune system develops. Breast milk is a substance high in fat and carbohydrates. At the start of breastfeeding, it is lightweight and at the end, it is a creamy liquid. This change of texture allows the newborn to first quench his thirst and then his appetite. For that reason, the general hospitals in the State have nursing clinics, where specialized staff provides techniques for correct feeding. The hospital begins the training and then makes referral to a health community center where they are given follow-up to prolong the term of breastfeeding. Finally, the State official emphasized that breastmilk has the exact components that the baby needs for its development.
