Empower Parents and Enable Breastfeeding


Breastfeeding is the best way of providing young infants with the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development. With appropriate information about breastfeeding and support from family, friends and society, almost all mothers can effectively breastfeed. According to WHO, breastfeeding should be initiated within the first hour after birth. Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended up to 6 months of age, with continued breastfeeding along with appropriate complementary foods up to two years of age or beyond.
