New program promotes a baby friendly Ontario

Ekram Johar is a mother. As she swayed back and forth, up against her chest, she cradled her six-day-old baby girl Nuria. Johar has breastfed all three of her children in the past and is continuing this practice with the newest edition to her family. “It’s good for the baby’s development, good for bones and teeth … helps get rid of pregnancy fat and postpartum stress. … The list goes on,” Johar said.
