Breastfeeding Support

 

Breastfeeding is not a one size fits all. Many families use a variety of methods to feed their babies breast milk - donor milk, exclusive pumping, breast/chest feeding and safe milk sharing. No matter how breast milk is delivered to your baby, it provides the best nourishment possible. Breast milk contains antibodies and good bacteria that help your baby fight off certain illnesses and infections. It is easy to digest and babies that are fed breast milk have less constipation and diarrhea. It's filled with nutrients and is all your baby needs for the first six months of life.

Listed below are links to breastfeeding support groups and resources to help you provide breast milk for your baby.
