Breastfeeding provides significantly better protection than artificial feeding against diarrheal diseases and respiratory infections in children, the main causes of mortality in low-income populations. In 1993, WHO estimated that 1.5 million infant deaths could be prevented each year through effective breastfeeding. In addition, formula milk is not only expensive, but can be a risk factor for malnutrition, as some mothers may be tempted to dilute it or switch prematurely to other forms of feeding. On the other hand, in some high-income countries many mothers stop breastfeeding earlier than they wish; although about 80% of mothers decide to breastfeed when they give birth, only 36% continue six months after delivery. Many mothers stop breastfeeding because they have a mistaken perception that their milk does not nourish their newborn, they lose confidence in themselves and that they are producing enough milk for their child to be properly nourished.
In the last three decades, the low incidence and duration of breastfeeding have been recognized as a public health problem.
The European Action Plan for the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding recognizes breastfeeding as a public health priority. Society suffers from the detriments of non-breastfeeding, since artificial breastfeeding means an increase in health care costs due to the greater disease associated with non-breastfeeding; the mother has a greater risk of postpartum hemorrhage, spinal and hip fracture after menopause, rheumatoid arthritis, uterine, breast and ovarian cancer, hypertension, anxiety and depression. The increased disease of non-breastfed infants and their mothers leads to an increase in absenteeism from work, and companies are also suffering from these effects. Breastfed children cause less expenses to their families, to society in medicines and use of health services and cause fewer losses due to absenteeism from work, and we must not forget that it saves natural resources, does not pollute the environment and does not need to spend on manufacturing, packaging or transportation.
