More efforts have been made to promote breast-feeding among Thai mothers, with the latest initiative recently taking place in Chiang Mai and Bangkok.
Dr. Nisit Wattanatchariya, Director of Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital, recently chaired an event to promote breast-feeding, which was the second of the hospital’s attempts to encourage mothers to breast-feed their babies.
More than 100 mothers brought their babies to join the event, which was concurrently organized with the same event in Bangkok.
In total, around 700 mothers, with their babies, took part in the initiative that was officially recognized by Thailand’s Book of Records.
In addition to having the biggest number of mothers and their babies in Thailand gathered together, the project was intended to offer moral support and inspire Thais to choose to breast-feed babies more, at a time when Thailand’s rate of breast-feeding, when compared with other Asian countries is at the lowest level of only 12.3 percent.
