ALPI believes breastfeeding saves lives. ALPI is a socially focused organization providing lactation services, partnering with other breastfeeding organizations, promoting skilled lactation care and protecting breastfeeding in India. Every family in India deserves the opportunity to achieve their breastfeeding goals. Breastfeeding a child in the first hour and exclusively for the first 6 months reduces neo-natal and infant mortality, reduces the risks of early infections, and ultimately gives the child the best start to life. ALPI is addressing the barriers to breastfeeding on many levels and is providing solutions to ensure every woman, child and family the best beginning through evidenced based education, training and lactation consultation. We work locally, nationally and internationally to see change for every breastfeeding family.
