Aprokodoctor, a well-known social media personality and healthcare professional, recently provided new parents with insightful guidance on how to properly feed their infants.
In a recent Instagram post, He raised awareness of a significant issue, notably the practice of forcing children to eat, which has been present in many African communities.
This conventional method entails putting the youngster on the parent’s lap and making an effort to force large amounts of food into the child’s mouth.
The potential risks of such feeding techniques are emphasized by Aprokodoctor’s understanding of the situation.
