HIV and breastfeeding
For HIV-positive mothers, WHO recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months unless replacement feeding is:
- acceptable (socially welcome)
- feasible (facilities and help are available to prepare formula)
- affordable (formula can be purchased for six months)
- sustainable (feeding can be sustained for six months)
- safe (formula is prepared with safe water and in hygienic conditions).
