Plight of Baby Seal, who was rejected by his mother and faces race against time to persuade her to give him crucial life or death feed has taken viewers on an emotional rollercoaster. Heartbreaking moment was featured in the new Channel 5 show Wonderful World of Baby Animals, which debuted last night. A pup, who has just been born needs to be fed immediately before losing important antibodies that would protect him from diseases. However, mother would not let him drink her milk from her teat, and kept scooting away from him when he tried to reach out. Viewers took to Twitter, saying they were rooting for Baby during the tense scene.S I really hope that Baby seal makes it. Come on Mummy, you need to feed your baba, one invest viewer pointed out. It was explained in the documentary that the adult seal might have been a first - time mother who didn't know exactly how to look after her pup, or she might have been too exhausted to let him feed. At one point, it looked as if there was risk of mother abandoning her pup altogether. Time was running out for the pup, whose immune system would be exposed to disease if he didn't get fed soon. The baby tried to follow his mother along the beach but she was too fast for him. In spite of his cries for help, bigger seal didn't seem to change her mind, and kept moving further from her pup. Thankfully, after hours of pleading and fighting, mother stopped running away and gave pup sniff. This way, she was able to confirm it was indeed her pup, and finally lay down so that he could find her teat and feed. Her documentary gives insight into how dangerous life can be for newborn seal. Adult male seals are aggressive, and know to kill young ones when mothers are not looking. One mother who had scooted off too quickly for her daughter put her in mortal danger when an adult male seal swooped in between them. It takes some fierce arguing and bargaining to get the male to stand down. In order to survive, pups have to learn ropes from their mothers quickly so they can keep themselves out of harm's way. Seal pups are usually born between November and January. Mothers, have to feed all summer to be fully ready to provide them with their fatty milk. Seals ' body mass needs to consist of 55 percent of fat so that they can brave water cold temperature. It is therefore utmost important they get fed enough. Mother seals will eventually leave their pups to fend for themselves while they take to sea again, and sadly, only 30 percent of baby seals make it to adulthood.

Nursing and Weaning

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, breast feeding should continue for at least the first year of life and beyond for as long as mutually desired by mother and child. In fact, prolonged nursing may have some important benefits beyond maintaining strong emotional bond. In studies conducted in Western Kenya, Africa, researchers found that breastfeeding for at least two years had a positive association with growth, particularly in impoverished areas. Other studies show that the longer a baby breastfeeds, greater their brain development. In fact, some evidence shows that the longer babies breastfeeds, sooner they accomplish milestone tasks, such as walking and talking. In my experience, babies who are breastfed until they are toddlers are more sociable, they are happier and better adjusted children. Most have very high IQ and they seem to be overall very well - round children, says Hodge. As a result, many lactation experts say prolonged nursing is OK - as long as both baby and mom want it that way. This is a personal decision and it should be made by the mother, says Hodge. Aponte agrees to point. Once the toddler reaches age 2, Aponte encourages mothers to stop breastfeeding - and most comply. If you do do it for two years, then you have more than give your baby an excellent start in life, he say. At that point, weaning is probably a good idea. Note in developing countries, as well as in some European nations, breastfeeding child until age four or five is acceptable and considered normal. Some experts in the US say that this could become the norm here as well if breastfeeding becomes more widely accept.
