Do you know the World Health Organisation has a series of guidelines for breastfeeding babies and infants? It's considered the world's best practice for the optimal nutrition and health benefits for mother and baby but have you ever wondered why and how there could be one guideline for women in developing countries and those living in highly industrialized cities? Could one overarching guideline be dangerous for women at either end of the spectrum? Does emphasising the general advice overlook the individual circumstances of babies or are we much more alike than we could ever imagine?
