    Statistics from

    Breast feeding is one of the major themes promoted and publicised on stamps with a paediatric interest. Although the total number of paediatric stamps is very small, infant feeding commands a relatively high proportion of these. The 1974 stamp from Central African Republic was issued to commemorate the 26th anniversary of the World Health

    Organisation and the 1985 stamp from Bangladesh for the UNICEF Child Survival Campaign. The latter is inscribed in Bengali and English to reach as wide a population as possible. The best example of a pictorial message displaying the promotion of breast versus bottle feeding is shown in the St Vincent stamp of 1987.
