About KAB

The Kenya Association for Breastfeeding (KAB) was founded by a group of breastfeeding counsellors and lactation educators who are passionate about providing much needed support to mothers and families who choose to breastfeed their babies.

KAB’s primary objective is to provide mothers with practical support and information, thus enabling them to establish and continue exclusively breastfeeding their babies from birth to six months of age, with continued breastfeeding after complementary foods are introduced, until the recommended age of two (2) years.

We are aware of the prevailing information and support gap in this particular field, which is why KAB pledges to provide high quality and accessible training, education and resources to its members, health professionals and the wider community to ensure skilled, knowledgeable and practical breastfeeding support is available to mothers.

KAB membership is open to any person over the age of eighteen (18) years who is resident in Kenya and has received a specific level of training to provide support in breastfeeding and/or infant nutrition, and is certified by a reputable and recognised institution; subject to approval of the committee.
