World Breastfeeding Week at ENN 

Take Ten Steps Up for Breastfeeding

During World Breastfeeding Week, we joined the Global Breastfeeding Collective to learn about the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding.

Imagine if every baby was born in a place where the best practices for supporting breastfeeding are the norms. The Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding are evidence-based practices that improve breastfeeding rates by establishing benchmarks for quality care for new mothers and infants in maternity services.

Watch the recording of the webinar, available here, to learn about the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding, find tools and resources to help adopt them in health systems, and be inspired by stories about the Ten Steps in action. Together, we can ensure every baby starts right in life by scaling up and providing universal quality of care in a baby-friendly environment.

PLUS: Two more reasons to step up

The MAMI Global Network and the Infant Feeding in Emergencies (IFE) Core Group hosted a webinar to learn how you can step up to save lives:
