s][/s]Two medical experts, Subedetu Nafiu, a Family Planning manager, and Olusola Malomo, a nutritionist, on Friday said breastfeeding mothers can also enjoy s*x while breastfeeding.
The experts spoke in separate interviews with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on the sidelines of the just-concluded World Breastfeeding Week at the Ajeromi General Hospital in Ajegunle, Lagos.
The experts debunked the notion that sperm could contaminate breast milk during s*x with breast feeding mothers.
Mrs Nafiu, who is also a child welfare manager, said that there was no relationship between sperm and breast milk and that people should stop spreading false information on whether the child would suck sperm from breast milk.
This myth makes many women stay away from performing their marital rights because they are breastfeeding and might cause more harm to marriages.
“There is no relationship between sperm and breast milk flow, a mother is free to meet her husband while she breastfeeds.
