Breastfeeding Saves Lives
In developing countries mothers often don’t have access to healthcare professionals who can give them the support and advice we all need when we have just had a baby.Save the Children have evidence that certain breast milk substitute manufacturers have made potentially misleading claims when advertising their products.
As a result of these and other cultural factors, mothers in these countries are often misinformed about what is best for their babies, particularly in their crucial first hour – from being told that breast milk is bad for their baby, to bottle feeding without sterile and safe equipment.
That first feed is crucial.
You can help in several ways:
Save the Children are asking you to sign their petition calling on breast milk substitute companies to always put children first.
