  • About Organization:In 1979 our daughter was born. My wife and I, being doctors and strong supporters of breastfeeding, decided that she should be breastfed exclusively for the first months but we failed in a few days, there being no support available from the family or the health care system. The prevailing bottle-feeding culture was too strong. The little girl had to give up breastfeeding by 5-6 months. The story was repeated in 1981 when our son was born. At that point of time we started looking for information on how one could succeed in breastfeeding but failed to find anything. We found ourselves in a position where women were only exhorted to follow optimal guidelines for breastfeeding but not supported to do so; so they often failed in their efforts to provide their babies with the best food. Years passed by, more and more women adopted bottle-feeding culture as a modern practice.
