New-borns have been breastfed from time immemorial. Breastfeeding has been seen as the first step of ensuring a good life and proper growth for babies. With increasing number of mothers and childbearing age women engaging in roles or activities that limit their continued intimacy with their babies, it is obvious breastfeeding patterns will be altered; this contribute to the increase in number of children who are malnourished leading to stunted growths both physically and mentally. It is imperative for all stakeholders to fashion a way of arresting the decreasing number of breastfed children, thus, safeguarding the future of our next generation.
