Angel Maternity Celebrating World Breastfeeding Week 2019

We know from our customers’ feedback that wearing the right clothing with easy access to breastfeeding can help women in feeling encouraged to breastfeeding. That's why we strive to keep on improving our nursing clothes and providing a variety of access for breastfeeding.

World Health Organisation on Breastfeeding

“Breastfeeding is the normal way of providing young infants with the nutrients they need for healthy growth and development. Virtually all mothers can breastfeed, provided they have accurate information, and the support of their family, the health care system and society at large.
Colostrum, the yellowish, sticky breast milk produced at the end of pregnancy, is recommended by WHO as the perfect food for the newborn, and feeding should be initiated within the first hour after birth.
Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended up to 6 months of age, with continued breastfeeding along with appropriate complementary foods up to two years of age or beyond.”
