Infant Feeding in Emergencies Module 2

Module 2 aims to provide health and nutrition workers with the basic knowledge and skills to help both breastfeeding and artificially feeding women. The first task is to support breastfeeding women, so that they do not lose confidence and introduce artificial feeds unnecessarily. The next task is to identify and help women who have feeding difficulties. The aim is to restore the feeding that is most appropriate for their infant or young child. Those caregivers for whom artificial feeding is the only option also need help. Module 2 should be used after trainees have studied Module 1.
