The first 1000 days are the most precious years for the mother–child couple. Pathology or nutrition of the pregnant and/or breastfeeding woman will condition the future nutritional, psycho-motor respiratory and nutritional development of the child. In this Special Issue, we propose the respective role of the environment and genetics in development of the breastfeeding and the role of nurses, midwives, dieticians, and lactation consultants for a harmonious and long-lasting breastfeeding. The role of human milk banks is very important for newborns and, in particular, for premature babies. It is also fundamental to have a good knowledge of the foetus, the premature baby and the full-term child from 0 to 2 years old, who are dependent on pregnant and breastfeeding women for good nutrition. The screening of neurology but also the hearing of the earliest metabolic diseases at birth and in childhood are important, to avoid the diseases of obesity in older children or even the chronic cardiometabolism diseases in adults. We will also talk about neonatal diseases, mainly in premature babies, such as bronchopulmonary dysplasia, necrotic enterocolitis and infectious diseases. Finally, the well-being, breastfeeding and psychological environment of the infant can be improved by early osteopathy. Thank you to all those who will participate in my virtual conference and Special Issue.
