AbstractCaesarean section is one of the barriers for early initiation of breast-feeding. Initiation of breast-feeding is often delayed because mothers who delivered through caesarean section often need some extra time to recover before they physically feel like holding and nursing their baby. The nurse must help the mother to develop the necessary skills so that she is able to feed her baby by herself. Breastfeeding advocates have long promoted the idea that women who have had a caesarean need extra support and help to establish breastfeeding. Breast-feeding is the ideal method suited for the psychological and physiological needs of the infants. It is the best food for the neonates due to its unique physical, biochemical and immunological qualities
