At a round-table discussion with the ministry of health and the Nigerian Labour Congress, they called on all tiers of government and stake-holders to support the campaign by engaging employers to extend paid maternity leave to 6 months, or provide creches and lactating rooms for breast feeding mothers.

The move , according to them, will help encourage mothers indulge in exclusive breast-feeding.
