According to the World Health Organization, exclusive breastfeeding is the optimal way of feeding babies for the first six months of their lives.

In regions where water sources are often contaminated and medical clinics are few and far between, nothing beats breastfeeding. Yet women giving birth in one of the world's poorest regions must often overcome immense obstacles to breastfeed.
