Please specifically include breastfeeding in the new Millennium Development Goals. 

Breastfeeding is free, it requires no sterilisation of equipment which can be a problem in areas which lack access to clean water, it is better for babies and reduces infant mortality rates and better for mothers. 

The International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitues should be fully implemented.
