World Breastfeeding Week
1st - 7th August #WBW

. . . Breastfeeding ​​​​​​​nourishes your baby  . . . 


There are many benefits to breastfeeding. 
Even if you are able to do it for only a short time, your baby's immune system can benefit from breast milk.
Aim to feed your baby only breast milk for the first six months, and try to breastfeed through your baby’s first birthday. Ask your provider for information on how to continue to breastfeed if you return to work or school.

Benefits of Breastfeeding for Baby
Benefits for Mom


Breastfeeding prevents hunger and malnutrition in all its forms and ensures food security for babies, even in times of crises. With no additional burden on household income, breastfeeding is a low-cost way of feeding babies and contributes to poverty reduction. Nutrition, food security and poverty reduction are fundamental to achieving the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals. 



To be at your best for breastfeeding, it’s important to eat a healthy, nutritious and balanced diet – both before and during breastfeeding. Combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breast milk, and reversing the decision not to breastfeed can be difficult. If you're thinking about bottle feeding your baby, always seek professional advice first – from your doctor, midwife or healthcare professional.
