COVID-19: Nutrition Society Encourages Mothers In Isolation To Express Breastmilk

Monday, May 4, 2020

The Nutrition Society of Nigeria (NSN) says mothers in isolation should be encouraged to express breastmilk for their babies to be fed.
According to the organisation, this is to ensure that the baby is well nourished even while the mother receives care while receiving treatment and recovering from COVID-19 .
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that expressing milk means to squeeze milk from breast, put in a container or bottle for  feeding without putting the baby directly to breast.
