Episode 7 – Breastfeeding and Baby-friendly Initiative

In this months podcast, Gill and Andrew talk to Jessica Sargent about Breastfeeding and Baby-friendly Initiative in New Brunswick. Breastfeeding is the best way to feed babies. Breast milk is important for the healthy growth and development. Babies should be exclusively breastfed to six months of age and then continue to be breastfed with appropriate complementary feeding to two years of age and beyond. New Brunswick has adopted the Baby-Friendly Initiative as a strategy to protect, promote and support breastfeeding.
