Lactation for Infant Feeding Expertise (LIFE) Abstract book

Editor(s): NNI Team.

Breastfeeding is the best way to feed a child, and human milk is the ideal nutrition for babies, providing benefits to the infant, the mother, the community and the society at large. Babies should be exclusively breastfed for the first six months of life, and thereafter, should receive adequate and safe complementary foods while breastfeeding continues up to two years of age and beyond. The evolution of human milk continues to intrigue and in many ways, fascinate researchers. Breast milk and human lactation have inspired thousands of researchers across the world, who for years, have been curious to unravel the science behind the nutrition content, components and factors that influence human milk production and its beneficial effects.
