A survey of obstetric and infant feeding practices in 100 mothers showed that only 17% infants were exclusively breast fed.
Antenatal advice regarding breast feeding was given to only 13%. Sixty eight percent infants were put to breast 24 hours after delivery.
Campaign against bottle feeding was then launched.
Fifteen months later, a survey on another 100 mothers showed that 44% infants were exclusively breast-fed, antenatal advice was given to 11% mothers and 60% mothers got active postnatal advice regarding disadvantages of bottle feeds.
