Roseline Oladimeji, a Chief Nursing Sister, in Lagos on Thursday, advised pregnant women to allow their husbands to suck their breasts to prepare them for breastfeeding after delivery.
She gave the advice at a sensitisation programme marking the 2021 World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) organised by the Amuwo Odofin Maternal and Child Centre (AOMCC), Festac Town.
“Allow your husbands to suck your br*sts during pregnancy. Apart from bonding, it will help the nipples to be out and make it easier for your baby to latch on. You can also rub vaseline on your nipples at night before going to sleep. It also helps to soften the breasts,” she said.
