Newborn baby feeding. Mother breastfeeding her newborn baby for the first time, in a hospital. Human milk contains an ideal balance of nutrients, as well as antibodies that protect the baby from infection. The mother has an intravenous drip line (yellow, centre right) in a vein on one of her hands. This allows the continuous administration of saline fluids, blood transfusions, drugs or painkillers.
