Dr. Raj K. Anand In the year of 1991, the World Health Organization and UNICEF introduced the baby-friendly hospital initiative to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding in all birth settings. The key elements of this initiative are the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding. We invite you to witness the implementation of these ten steps in a hospital.

Every facility providing maternity services and care for newborn infant should:

Step 1

Have a written breastfeeding policy that is routinely communicated to all healthcare staff.

The first step is to have a written breastfeeding policy in English and local languages. It addresses all the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding and states that the hospital does not accept any free or subsidized supplies of infant formula and feeding bottles. It is communicated to the hospital administration as well as to all the health workers in the maternity setting.

The health facility should have a written breastfeeding policy that addresses all 10 steps. It should be available so that all staff who take care of mothers and babies can refer to it. It should be visibly posted in all areas of the health care facility and it should be displayed in the language(s) most commonly understood by patients and staff.

The first step addresses all the ten steps and states that the hospital does not accept free or subsidized supplies of infant formula and feeding bottles.

The policy is communicated to all the health workers in the maternity setting.
