UAE forces mothers to breastfeed their children for at least two years.

According to a new law in the United Arab Emirates, all mothers must now breastfeed their children for at least two years after giving birth, or to get sued by their husbands if they do not follow the law

The Federal National Council included a clause in the new Child Rights Law which states that it is a human right for a child to be breast fed, and that nursing is now mandatory. However, in a situation where a mother is unable to breastfeed for biological reasons, the state would support her by providing a wet nurse.

Ever since the law became effective, several groups supporting new parents have reacted strongly to it cos they are concerned that enacting such a law would leave mothers facing potential serious punishment.
