Every mother has the right to
know and practice the correct method of rearing
her infant. All mothers are ready to adopt correct
practices once knowledge is provided to them.
The most important aspect of good rearing is
good nourishment that is BREASTMILK. Mothers
require information (Promotion) to successfully
breastfeed their infants. These are precisely
the objectives of BREASTFEEDING PROMOTION NETWORK
