Mother and baby

Breast milk gives babies all the nutrients they need for the first six months of life and helps protect them from infection and diseases. It also reduces mothers' chances of getting certain diseases later in life. 

Breastfeeding also allows mother and baby to get closer - physically and emotionally. So while a child is feeding, the bond between them can grow stronger.

For more information about breastfeeding and the 2011 campaign visit the NHS breastfeeding website, or take a look at the following websites:
