However, the legislation came very late in Pakistan when "The Protection of Breast-Feeding and Child Nutrition Ordinance, 2002" (XCIII Of 2002) was passed on October 26, 2002, and Pakistan became one of the 42 countries with legislation to adopt most of the articles of the Code.

"For infants to survive, grow and develop as they should, they need to be exclusively breastfed".

A new report by United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) and World Health Organisation (WHO) reveals that an estimated 78 million babies - or every three in five babies - are not breastfed within the first hour of life, putting them at higher risk of death and disease and making them less likely to continue breastfeeding. Dr Nirmala Chandrashekhar, Consultant Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Gynaec Oncology at BGS Gleneagles Global Hospitals said, "Early initiation, that is, breastfeeding from the first hour of birth ensures that infants consume the colostrum, which is the first secretion from the mammary glands after giving birth".

Are you feeding breast milk to your infant? Several community agencies will be on hand to offer education and information on topics such as pre-natal care, breastfeeding, and new parent resources. One of the steps to successful exclusive breastfeeding includes allowing mothers and infants remain together 24 hours a day. This can happen if the woman loses the feeling of fullness in her breasts or if milk stops leaking from the nipple.

Prof. Osawaru Oviawe, on his own part, stressed on maintaining the complete immunization doses for babies in addition to optimal breastfeeding up to six months, to build malaria antibodies as well as drive down asthma and eczema allergic reactions associated with milk substitutes. To boost exclusive breastfeeding, the Global Breastfeeding Advocacy Initiative, led by UNICEF and World Health Organization in collaboration with worldwide partners, are providing leadership to improve breastfeeding rates. Supportive healthcare systems, adequate maternity leave entitlements, workplace interventions, counselling and educational programmes can all help to improve breastfeeding rates. Breastfeeding prevents malnutrition and has also irreplaceable role to decrease child mortality, Dr. Belaynesh said.
