Formatted Abstract/Summary
A concluding chapter can be a rounding off of a discussion, a summary of
an argument, an ending. I prefer this conclusion to the book to be a
beginning for the reader, not an end. Why so?

The purpose of this book has been to address the issue of providing support
to enable mothers to breastfeed their babies. The emphasis has been on
encouraging exclusive breastfeeding for about six months and breastfeeding
with appropriate, nutrient-dense, locally-available, affordable
complementary foods thereafter, for as long as mother and baby wish.
Mother support makes it easier for a mother to breastfeed her baby
anywhere, anytime, and that may mean overcoming barriers, such as public
disapproval and unhelpful industrial conditions. The chapter authors have
described a number of barriers to establishing and sustaining effective
mother support.
