These magazine-sized booklets, one in English, one in Spanish, are in cartoon format and are designed to be used by people with limited literacy in English or Spanish. This booklet explains that exclusive breastfeeding means giving no water, liquids, or food; breast milk contains sufficient water to satisfy the baby's thirst; at about 6 months, the mother can begin to give solid foods to her breastfed baby and switch from a bottle to a cup; starting foods is a gradual process; and that a few drops of vegetable oil can be added to the foods if the baby isn't gaining enough weight.
