Breastfeeding is an unequalled way of providing ideal food for the healthy growth and development of infants; it is also an integral part of the reproductive process with important implications for the health of mothers. Review of evidence has shown that, on a population basis, exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months is the optimal way of feeding infants. Thereafter infants should receive complementary foods with continued breastfeeding up to 2 years of age or beyond.

Breast feeding will help a mother’s womb return to normal size and assist in using up the extra fat stored in preparation for making breast milk, and transfers antibodies and other protective factors that help protect baby against common infections. Frequent breast feeding will provide nipple stimulation and help to increase mother’s milk supply to meet the needs of her growing baby. Parents should always consider the social and financial implications before selecting a method of baby feeding.
