With the "Breastfeeding in public” prize, the non profit organization APILAM, which runs the e-health project e-lactancia.org, and the breastfeeding museum telasmos.org, seeks to contribute to the normalization and visibility of breastfeeding in public places: in a shop, a bank, a conference, a public swimming pool, a waiting-room, at a circus, in an airport, at a demonstration, in a queue at the market or a polling station, in a television studio, in Parliament

It is little wonder that many women and their babies are discriminated against for exercising a right, to breastfeed in public.

The “Marina Alta Breastfeeding” photo competition has 16 prizes sponsored by associations, city councils, businesses and breastfeeding support groups.  

Photos will be accepted until 31st March and the prizes will be given on June 2017.  The rules of the competition and the participation form can be found here and here.

Help us to promote breastfeeding



In APILAM we love breastfeeding, its beauty, its goodness.

Today I am asking for your collaboration to help us keep promoting breastfeeding: last year via our online health project e-lactancia.org, we helped answer nine million queries from 1.5 million people from 184 countries.

Your donation is important
We need funding to keep publishing the latest scientific evidence on the compatibility of breastfeeding with medicines, medical tests, illnesses, and make it available to everyone.  


With your support you make it possible for us to promote breastfeeding by answering doubts held by mothers, fathers and health professionals.

Warm regards, happy holidays and congratulations for believing in the goodness and beauty of breastfeeding.

The Zika virus and breastfeeding in nine paragraphs


1. e-lactancia has classified the Zika virus as low risk, compatible with breastfeeding, with no risk for breastfeeding or the infant.

2. The Zika virus is a Flavivirus which is mainly transmitted by the bite of the Aedes mosquitoes from infected carriers (humans and various animals).
                                        
3. Sexual transmission as well as vertical transmission from mother to child (placental and perinatal) has been documented sporadically.

4. The relationship between placental transmission and congenital microcephaly is being researched.

5. Possible transmission via transfusion is also a concern.

6. Although Zika virus RNA has been found in breast milk, transmission of the infection through breastfeeding has not been documented.

7. Viral infection is asymptomatic in 75% of cases. Only one in four people develop symptoms which are generally benign, with few complications in adults and children, including infants, and which rarely require hospitalization.

8. In the case of two infants who had tested positive for the virus, presumably after perinatal transmission, one was asymptomatic and the other had mild symptoms with doubtful links to the virus. Both infants, as well as their mothers, progressed favorably (Besnard, 2014).

9. Given the benefits of breastfeeding, expert committees – the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) – recommend breastfeeding even in areas where there the Zika virus is present.


For more detailed information, containing nine bibliographical references, please consult the e-lactancia.org entry on the compatibility of breastfeeding withthe Zika virus prepared by pediatricians from APILAM (Association for the promotion and scientific and cultural research of breastfeeding)

Happy new year, happy breastfeeding


APILAM wishes you a very happy new year full of successful, happy and informed breastfeeding with the silk-screen print “Midnight feeding” by the Inuit artist Mary Okheena.

“Midnight feeding”(1991) forms part of the Telasmos museum collection, one of APILAM’s projects which seeks to collect everything which represents or is related to breastfeeding: stamps, coins, paintings, sculptures, advertizing, health pamphlets, posters, photos…

In 2015 the APILAM team updated 229 products  in e-lactancia.org, APILAM’s e-health project on the compatibility of breastfeeding with medical procedures, medicines and other products, and participated in more than 40 conferences, congresses, workshops and courses about breastfeeding for health and non-health professionals, and for mothers and fathers.

In 2015 the e-lactancia.org website received  more than 9 million consultations carried out by more than a million and half individuals.

In addition, APILAM’s pediatricians have answered via email an average of ten daily personalized consultations on the compatibility of breastfeeding with plants, diseases, medicines and other products.

In 2016 APILAM will continue to update the e-lactancia.org website, disseminating information about the goodness and beauty of breastfeeding, as well as seeking funding to ensure that our project to promote, protect and raise awareness on breastfeeding is sustainable on a long term basis.

Happy new year, happy breastfeeding and many thanks to all the individuals, associations and institutions who have supported APILAM’s project with their backing and donations.

Dr. José María Paricio Talayero

President of APILAM
