This video is about breastfeeding and your baby’s health and development. Watch mums breastfeeding and learn why breastfeeding is good for baby and good for you. Breastmilk contains all the nutrients your baby needs for the first six months of life and can protect baby from infection and disease. Breastfeeding is also a great opportunity for skin-to-skin contact and bonding with your baby.
