Feed the baby, protect the milk supply: an example from the Democratic Republic of Congo

January 14, 2011

"I was reminded of this when Action Against Hunger contacted me to share this video of babies being fed at stabilization centers in the Democratic Repulic of Congo. It shows a baby who was severly malnourished being fed at one of these centers. The mother, malnourished herself, had a very compromised milk supply, and the baby was in real danger. The help they got at this center was supportive of breastfeeding. I'll let you see how."
