Breast is best that's what I've always been told. Feeding babies breast milk gives them the best start in life.

The government is so keen to encourage women to breast-feed it's offering them £200 vouchers if they are still breast-feeding their baby at six months. The team behind the project say a lack of breast-feeding among low-income communities is resulting in poorer health for those children.

Will £200 really change a woman's behaviour?
