In brief: Breastfeeding
Education is an essential component of successful breastfeeding.
Exclusive breastfeeding is sufficient to support optimal growth and development for the first 6 months of life and provides continuing protection against diarrhea and respiratory infections. Recognize the possible effect of cultural diversity around your cycles on breastfeeding attitudes and educate them!
