Why Breastfeeding?

Breastfeeding is one of the best ways a mother can give her baby the healthiest start to life. By putting an infant to the breast within an hour of birth, and thereafter maintaining this as the sole form of feeding for the infant’s first six months, a mother can ensure that important antibodies will be passed on, protecting the baby from life-threatening diseases such as diarrhea and pneumonia.

Breastfeeding saves lives!

More than 800,000 child lives could be saves every year if every child was breastfed within an hour of birth, given only breastmilk for the first six months of life, and continued breast feeding for up to two years.
