Breastfeeding is the best way to feed an infant
Breastfeeding is still best. With rapid changes in the world, people need to be reminded that traditional ways of doing things (such as breastfeeding) may be the best practice for their baby and family. It provides the best nutrition and protection against disease. It fosters mother-infant bonding, and provides physical contact for mother and baby.
I'd like to highlight UNICEF's page on protecting, promoting, and supporting breastfeeding: http://www.unicef.org/nutrition/index_breastfeeding.html
I began my career working on the issue of breastfeeding, while a graduate student. My career moved in other directions, but this challenge reminds me how important the issue was, and still is. I'm hoping that this challenge will help us think of ways that technology can communicate the importance of breastfeeding and the traditions that support breastfeeding around the world.
