- Recommending exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months of life and continued breastfeeding through at least the first year (with tips and advice on breastfeeding, introducing solid foods and weaning)
- Reinforcing the health benefits of breastfeeding and breast milk for infant and mother
- Reminding expectant and new mothers about lactation classes and available breastfeeding support
