UAE makes breastfeeding for new mums mandatory for two years
United Arab Emirates' Federal National Council has passed a clause, which is a part of their new Child Rights Law, to make it compulsory for new moms to breastfeed their babies for two ears.
There was a "marathon debate" over the legislation, but it was finalised as it is every child's right to be breastfed, Huffington Post reported.
However, not all new moms are able to nurse, and in those cases if a woman is prohibited by health reasons, the council will provide a "wet nurse" to her.
Council members are also trying to improve rights for working moms to make the legislation more practical.
