Free Handout: “Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergency Situations”

wellstart logoHere’s a free handout on “Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergency Situations” from Wellstart International. Definitely worth downloading, reading and keeping for a “what if” situation. It covers misconceptions about breastfeeding during emergencies, special assistance that nursing mothers DO need, the fact that human milk substitutes are not always necessary, optimal feeding practices and a triage diagram detailing steps to take for infants under 6 months of age. This is very relevant and timely information – particularly for those of us in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and other countries in experiencing emergency situations.
