Traditionally in Nigerian and most developing countries as soon as the baby is born breast milk alone is the possible food and drink; although there is the ignorance of extracting the first milk (cholesterol) and throwing it away as bad milk. At weaning times most children are abruptly withdrawn from breast-feeding especially when the mother is ill, pregnant or when some elderly mothers assume that the breast milk of a particular young mother is bad or inadequate for normal child growth. Weaning in such cases is usually enforced
with crude methods that are intended to stop the child from suckling the mother's breast.
