Optimal complementary feeding practices, a critical component of infant and young child feeding, has been demonstrated to prevent micronutrient deficiencies, stunting, overweight, and obesity. In Kenya, while impressive gains have been made in exclusive breastfeeding, progress in complementary feeding has been slow, and the country has failed to meet targets. Recent 2014 Kenya Demographic and Health Survey reveal that only 22% of Kenyan children, 6-23 months, met criteria for a minimum acceptable diet. This case study describes key actions for complementary feeding put in place by the Kenya Ministry of Health as well as approaches for improving and monitoring complementary feeding within existing health platforms...

The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) has shown to strengthen health providers' skills in the provision of breastfeeding counselling and support, which have led to improvements in breastfeeding outcomes. In Malawi, where BFHI was introduced in 1993 but later languished due to losses in funding, the Maternal and Child Survival Program supported the Malawi Ministry of Health (MOH) in the revitalization and scale-up of BFHI in 54 health facilities across all 28 districts of the country. This paper describes the revitalization and scale-up process within the context of an integrated health project; successes, challenges, and lessons learned with BFHI implementation; and the future of BFHI in Malawi...

The Baby-Friendly Community Initiative (BFCI) is an extension of the 10th step of the Ten Steps of Successful Breastfeeding and the Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) and provides continued breastfeeding support to communities upon facility discharge after birth. BFCI creates a comprehensive support system at the community level through the establishment of mother-to-mother and community support groups to improve breastfeeding. The Government of Kenya has prioritized community-based programming in the country, including the development of the first national BFCI guidelines, which inform national and subnational level implementation...

Objective. The purpose of our study was to identify attitudes towards donor breast milk in our population and identify barriers to its acceptance. Methods. The study sample was comprised of a convenience sample of 174 postpartum women. A questionnaire consisting of demographic information and 12 questions relating to attitudes and understanding of donor breast milk was administered. Results. Among the mothers surveyed, 34% were aware of the use of donor breast milk and donor milk banks. 62% of mothers preferred the use of formula compared to donor breast milk if they were unable to provide their own breast milk...

BACKGROUND: Known interventions like breastfeeding and kangaroo mother care (KMC) can avert a large share of infant deaths. Mother Baby Friendly Initiative Plus (MBFI+) is an integrated approach to ensure exclusive human milk diet through promotion of breastfeeding, KMC, and provision of donor human milk (DHM) to vulnerable neonates lacking mothers' own milk. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Qualitative research was conducted among 56 service recipients including mothers and key influencers and 9 service providers to understand their knowledge, perceptions, and practices on breastfeeding, KMC, DHM, and human milk banks (HMBs) in 2 facilities in India, one with and another without an operational HMB...

BACKGROUND: Race is a predictor of breastfeeding rates in the United States, and rates are lowest among African American infants. Few studies have assessed changes in breastfeeding rates by race after implementing the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding (hereafter referred to as the Ten Steps), and none have assessed the association between implementation and changes in racial disparities in breastfeeding rates. Our goal was to determine if a hospital- and community-based initiative in the Southern United States could increase compliance with the Ten Steps, lead to Baby-Friendly designation, and decrease racial disparities in breastfeeding...

REVIEW
Victoria Fallon, Joanne Alison Harrold, Anna Chisholm
Global evidence demonstrates that adherence to the Baby Friendly Initiative (BFI) has a positive impact on multiple child health outcomes, including breastfeeding initiation and duration up to one year postpartum. However, it is currently unclear whether these findings extend to specific countries with resource rich environments. This mixed methods systematic review aims to a) examine the impact of BFI implementation (hospital and community) on maternal and infant health outcomes in the UK, and b) explore the experiences and views of women receiving BFI-compliant care in the UK...

Shorter length of stay for postpartum mothers and their newborns necessitates careful community follow-up after hospital discharge. The vast amount of information given during the initial postpartum period can be overwhelming. New parents often need considerable support to understand the nuances of newborn care including newborn feeding. Primary health care and community services need to ensure there is a seamless continuum of care to support, empower, and educate new mothers and their families to prevent unnecessary hospital readmission and other negative health outcomes...

Good nutrition for infants, during the first 1000 days from conception, is one of the most important determinants of a healthy long life. Breastfeeding is the most important component of infant nutrition and reduces morbidity and mortality. With the changes to the climate currently occurring, issues of nutrition and food supply are only going to increase in importance. The Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, place nutrition at the forefront of world development and a sustainable planet. The vision of Asia-Pacific Academic Consortium for Public Health (APACPH) is to "achieve the highest possible level of health of all the people of the nations of the Asia-Pacific region...

BACKGROUND: Scaling-up human milk banks (HMBs) is a promising solution for saving vulnerable newborns. Exploring perceptions and practices on donor human milk (DHM) and HMBs is essential to strengthen and scale-up an integrated HMB system resting on a model called the "Mother Baby Friendly Initiative Plus" (MBFI+), which includes promoting breastfeeding, encouraging kangaroo mother care, and providing safe DHM to vulnerable babies without access to mother's own milk. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A qualitative research was conducted among 56 service recipients including mothers and key influencers and 9 service providers to understand their perceptions and practices on DHM and HMBs...
