Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative-Ten Steps to Successful Breast Feeding:

1. Have a written breastfeeding policy that is routinely communicated to all health care staff.

2. Train all health care staff in skills necessary to implement this policy.

3. Inform all pregnant women about the benefits and management of breastfeeding.

4. Help mothers initiate breastfeeding within  half-an-hour after child birth.

5. Show mothers how to breastfeed and how to  maintain lactation, even if they should be separated from their infants.

6. Give newborn infants no food or drink other than breast milk, not even sips of water, unless medically indicated.

7. Practice rooming in – that is , allow mothers and infants to remain together 24 hours a day.

8. Encourage breastfeeding on demand.

9. Give no artificial teats or pacifiers (also called dummies or soothers) to breastfeeding infants.

10.Foster the establishment of breastfeeding support groups and refer mothers to them on discharge from the hospital or clinic.
