Abidjan, Ivory Coast

Beatrice Amenan, 44, breastfeeds her nine-month-old baby Maeli. The child’s father, Tano Kouacou, 54, laughs that it will definitely be their last. Maman Ba Madeline (left) taught Amenan about the importance of exclusively breastfeeding her child for the first six months. The parents say they have noticed that their last four children, who were exclusively breastfed for the first six months, are healthier than the first two, who weren’t.
