Breastfeeding is the normal way of providing young infants with the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development according to the World Health Organization. They recommend that all infants should breastfeed within one hour of birth, feed on nothing but breast milk for the first six months of life, and continue breastfeeding until at least the age of two years and beyond. Protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding will save more lives of babies and children than any other single preventative intervention. Breastfed children have fewer childhood infection, fewer chronic diseases (diabetes), obesity, concerns in later life; higher Intelligence Quotient (IQ), higher earning potential; more opportunities to prioritize education; and healthier mothers.
