Support Breastfeeding
In order to support breastfeeding, action is required by national and local government, by health authorities and health care Trusts, local communities, schools, businesses, voluntary organisations, family and individuals. Each and everyone can encourage a more supportive attitude towards bresatfeeding within our society.

Remember that, Each and Everyone can do something.


Following are some of the steps that you can take to support and promote breastfeeding:

Protect a mother's right to breastfeed in public areas, providing private, comfortable facilities to mothers who prefer them
Extend statutory maternity leave and support mothers wishing to continue breastfeeding when they return to work
Adopt recognised best practice standards, ensuring that enough health professionals with appropriate training are employed to support breastfeeding mothers
Introduce effective breastfeeding education into the student training of all health professionals
Provide banked donated breastmilk, where clinically indicated, for babies for whom mothers' own breastmilk is not available.
Provide infant feeding education in schools using positive and culturally-appropriate images of breastfeeding
Avoid materials which promote artificial feeding, increasing parents' access to impartial information
Set targets for improved breastfeeding rates and other standards
Provide incentives and release funds to support the adoption of breastfeeding strategies and policies
