A healthy start for every child's life
Breastfeed all babies exclusively until the age of six months. Breast milk alone is the best food for the baby during the first six months.
Begin breastfeeding within the first hour after birth so that the baby can feed on colostrum. Colostrum is the thick yellowish milk that comes from the breasts during the first few days after delivery. It is very nutritious and full of nutrients that protect the child from infections/diseases and allergies.
Breast milk keeps the baby strong and happy.
