Published by Better Health Start for Life and the Baby Friendly Initiative and updated in 2022, this leaflet provides mothers and health professionals with key information about breastfeeding.

The leaflet is a teaching aid for health professionals when discussing the benefits and management of breastfeeding with pregnant women, and when teaching new mothers how to breastfeed. Health professionals may also find our breastfeeding assessment tools and practical skills review forms useful when talking to new mothers.

To enquire about printed copies of this leaflet, please visit the Department of Health & Social Care campaign resource centre. The UNICEF UK Baby Friendly Initiative is unable to assist with printed leaflets for this resource.Β
