Changing the knowledge and attitude towards exclusive breastfeeding; a first step in many directions.
– It is very important to breastfeed your baby within the first hour of birth to stimulate milk production. It’s called Early Initiation.
– Make sure you feed your baby the first yellowish milk known as colostrum.
– Ensure you give your baby only breast milk and nothing else (no other milks, foods or liquids not even sips of water) except for medicine prescribed by a doctor (Healthcare professional). This process is called Exclusive Breastfeeding.
– If you need to be away from baby, express some breast milk for him/her and cup feed while away.
