Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    How many times should a newborn breastfeed in a 24hr period?

    • A.

      5-6 times

    • B.

      8-12 times

    • C.

      2-4 times

    Correct Answer
    B. 8-12 times
    Explanation
    Newborn babies should breastfeed 8-12 times in a 24-hour period. This is because breast milk is easily digested and newborns have small stomachs, so they need to eat frequently to meet their nutritional needs and promote healthy growth. Breastfeeding frequently also helps establish a good milk supply for the mother and promotes bonding between the baby and the mother.

    Breast milk gives a baby immunities from illnesses and disease.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Breast milk contains antibodies and immune cells that help protect babies from illnesses and diseases. These components are passed from the mother to the baby through breastfeeding, providing the baby with passive immunity. This means that even if the mother has been exposed to certain infections or diseases, her breast milk can help protect the baby from them. This is one of the reasons why breastfeeding is highly recommended for newborns as it can provide them with a strong defense against various illnesses.

    Formula fed babies feed less often because their bodies don't digest formula well.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Formula fed babies feed less often because formula is harder for their bodies to digest compared to breast milk. Breast milk is specifically designed to be easily digested by babies, whereas formula is made from cow's milk or soy protein, which can be more difficult for babies to break down. As a result, formula fed babies may feel fuller for longer periods of time, leading to less frequent feedings compared to breastfed babies.

    Breast fed babies are less likely to have colic and other digestive problems.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Breast milk contains easily digestible proteins and fats, which makes it easier for babies to digest compared to formula milk. It also contains antibodies and beneficial bacteria that help in maintaining a healthy gut. These factors contribute to a lower risk of colic and other digestive problems in breastfed babies.

  • 6. 

    Mother's who breastfeed lose their extra weight gained during pregnancy faster than a mother who does not breastfeed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Breastfeeding can help mothers lose the extra weight gained during pregnancy faster because it burns calories. When a mother breastfeeds, her body uses stored fat to produce breast milk, which can lead to weight loss. Additionally, breastfeeding releases the hormone oxytocin, which helps the uterus contract and return to its pre-pregnancy size. This can further contribute to weight loss. However, it is important to note that individual results may vary, and other factors such as diet and exercise also play a role in postpartum weight loss.
