More than 100 pairs of parents yesterday brought their babies along to a function celebrating the establishment of the Breastfeeding Association Taiwan (BRA), the country's first organization to promote breastfeeding.
Chen Chao-huei (³¯¬L´f), chief of the neonatology division in Tai-chung Veterans General Hospital, was the author of an article exploring the relationship between SARS and breastfeeding. She attended the function to answer questions about breastfeeding.
There are no ready statistics on the prevalence of breastfeeding in Taiwan at the moment, but Chen said in the country's 'mother-baby-friendly hospitals,' around 80 to 90 percent of mothers breastfeed their newborn babies."
