LOMBOK, Indonesia, 29 July 2008 -- It's early morning as Dwinta Dyah Larasanti, a midwife, sets off to the local health clinic prepared to fight poor infant feeding. Dwinta's weapon in this battle is simple: accurate information.

Dwinta is one of many new midwives trained with support from UNICEF in proper infant feeding practices. Now she is passing on her expertise to mothers in the community. At the clinic, she uses simple tools like flip charts and illustrated guides to explain the importance of proper breastfeeding.

"You should give your babies only breast milk from birth up to the age of six months. No formula, no solid food. Nothing but mother's milk," Ms. Larasanti tells her class. "Even when you start to wean your child, mother's milk can be given up to two years and beyond."
