The objective of this guideline is to give recommendations on how to implement breastfeeding counselling to improve breastfeeding practices.


This guideline was developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) according to the methods outlined in the WHO handbook for guideline development. This publication is a summary of the most important aspects of this guideline translated into German by members of the WHO Collaborating Centre at the Danube University Krems (Austria). RESULTS/
