Published by the Department of Health and the Baby Friendly Initiative, this leaflet provides mothers and health professionals with key information about breastfeeding.

The leaflet is a teaching aid for health professionals when discussing the benefits and management of breastfeeding with pregnant women, and when teaching new mothers how to breastfeed. Health professionals may also find our breastfeeding assessment tools and practical skills review forms useful when talking to new mothers.

You can order printed copies of the 4 page leaflet directly from Start4Life. Please note that printed copies are not available from Unicef UK.
