Breastfeeding is important for you and your baby. 
For the first 6 months, your baby only needs Breastmilk.

Breastfeeding matters because…

• Everyone benefits from breastfeeding: you, your baby, your family, and your community.
• Breast milk is convenient, always the right temperature and available anytime.
• Breastfeeding is free and environmentally friendly.
• Breastfeeding promotes bonding between you and your baby.
• Breastfeeding satisfies both your and your baby’s emotional needs.
• Breastfeeding builds healthy eating habits and relationships for life.
• Breastfeeding reduces health care costs for the family and society.

“ Breastfeeding is viewed as a collective community health behavior, not the sole responsibility of the mother”
World Health Organization 2012 and Jennifer Quin
