Breastfeeding in Public a Civil Right for Women

This was a heated topic on our WhatsApp group earlier this month and funny enough, Stian sent a chat that a woman sitting next to him on the plane was breastfeeding…Quite funny since we have been discussing about it and even though the discussion had died down it suddenly erupted again. Well, my personal take on it at first was that women can feed anywhere, it doesn’t matter as long as they cover up and some of my mates where just not for that compromise, especially the females in the group.

Breastfeeding: A Key to Long Life and Socio-Economic Progress

Health is defined as a complete state of physical, social and mental well-being which entails ‘illness free days’. Better health is central to human happiness and well-being. It is beyond doubt that the good health status of any nation’s citizens makes an important contribution towards economic progress. A healthy citizen will live longer, be more productive and save more. Thus good health is critical for socio-economic development as it increases the marginal productivity of labour.
