For Families in Poverty, Breastfeeding is Vital – The First 1000 Days

Mothers wean their babies from the breast in a matter of weeks, so they can return to work sooner. But they don't give them a good quality formula instead. They can't afford it, and they don't know the difference.

They Chose the Best Start For Their Baby

When Ei Phyo Wai's baby was only one and a half months old, she started to feel like she should go out and look for a job to help make money. In order to do that she began giving her a substitute for breastmilk, in order to wean her. It wasn't even infant formula. But she couldn't read the box. She only looked at the pictures. She thought from the pictures that it was good for her baby.

A Snapshot from the Field

Do You Want My Baby?

Imagine how you would feel, living in a tiny bamboo hut on stilts, above a mosquito infested swamp/sewer, in a crowded village strewn with refuse, where you live at the mercy of the landlord, who is also your boss, barely able to feed the children you already have, to find out you were expecting another.

Fat Happy Babies!!!

"Before you started coming to our village, most of the babies born here were skinny, and cried all the time. The babies born since you started caring for these women are so different, they are fat, they don't cry as much, their mothers seem happier taking care of them and they know what to do when they are sick or fussy because you visit and help them learn."

Holding Onto Life

She was just starting to show when the wife came to the place they both worked and confronted the man they both thought they were with. In the end, this baby's father returned to his wife and abandoned the girl he had taken advantage of.

Birth Class Update

These women have never been taught about their bodies. They didn't know how their cycles work. They didn't know how pregnancy happens. Several of the mamas in my class are teenagers. They might not be pregnant right now if someone had given them basic sex education.
