For the second year, SAMAS Association ran the information and education campaign for young mothers ``Each baby with its own milk``, whose message is that each baby has its own specific nutritional needs, animal milk is not suitable for it. For 2022, the NGO aimed to reach even more mums than it had been able to in the previous year, and an educational content campaign was no longer enough. We needed to find a way to amplify the campaign message in a way that was as authentic and trustworthy as possible.
Exclusive breastfeeding during the first 6 months of life is particularly important for the baby's development. However, only 29% of mothers in Romania do so, while the rest replace breast milk with animal milk. Although there have been efforts to educate and inform on the subject in the past, most have chosen to convey the message in a form that is too rigid for the target audience, mothers.
In order to inform and educate Romanian mothers, we have built around the idea that each baby has its own nutritional needs, in a way that is as authentic as possible, from the world of mothers and their offspring. We have created different digital spaces where mothers can inform themselves and discuss their breastfeeding problems. The challenge was to simplify the information and create digital experiences that were as interactive as possible. And because as well explained as the message was, the important thing was to reach as many mums in Romania as possible in a way they could trust, we called on mummy influencers to tell their own stories.
