Abstract

In the absence of significant, unpreventable risks, breastfeeding should be the norm for the nourishment of human infants and should, therefore, be encouraged for populations in all countries. Continued efforts of international and national agencies and healthcare professionals to aid and abet breastfeeding, reduce the risks that occur in some women during breastfeeding, provide the safest substitutes for human milk when that is necessary, and encourage further research into the posed questions should considerably improve the health of many children.
