Breastfeeding Support

In the article  Breastfeeding Awareness Month, we learned about the advantages of breastfeeding to both the baby and the mother.  What is important now is for mothers to stay committed to breastfeeding to ensure its success.

The success of breastfeeding also lies on the support from the people surrounding the mother, from the husband, other members of the family and friends.

Support for breastfeeding from the workplace is also encouraged. This calls for offices and workmates to show support to mothers with a newborn and to provide a breastfeeding-friendly environment for them.
