These magazine-sized booklets, one in English, one in Spanish, are in cartoon format and designed to be used by people with limited literacy in English or Spanish. This booklet explains what a mothers' support group is, and that mothers share experiences and information about breastfeeding, invite friends and relatives to attend, and is facilitated by a breastfeeding counselor who lives in the community. They also learn that breastfeeding mothers can eat a variety of foods, breast-size is irrelevant to performance, and that giving a breastfed baby a bottle can interfere with continued breastfeeding.
