Innovation Description

Only 57.5% of Ethiopian children under 6 months are exclusively breastfeed. Mothers get 90 days paid maternity leave, of which 60 days are allocated for postpartum. For economic reason most mothers go back to work on the 3rd month after birth. They introduce breastfeeding substitute at this point. Infants face frequent illness and loss on the benefit of breastfeeding. Mothers spend their income on breastfeeding substitute. They face dissatisfaction, frequent absenteeism and lag in their career.
