    Breast feeding helps babies in so many ways. It gives them the essential nutrients they need, helps with their immune system and builds an important bond with the mother. Hopefully this awareness campaign will do it's job.

    Thanks for this article – breast feeding makes such a difference on the development of a baby’s skull bones. I’d love to see more mothers breast feeding and given their babies milk that was designed for them!
