Breastfeeding Friendly Child Care

As a child care provider, you are one of the most important supports a breastfeeding mother has after she returns to work or school. Your daily support and encouragement make all the difference. Supporting a breastfeeding mother means respecting the effort she puts into providing her own milk for her baby, and making it as easy as possible for her to continue to do so. She may be to overwhelmed to tell you now, but she'll always look back and be thankful for the help you were able to provide.

Once you start to support your breastfeeding mothers, it's easy to make your child care center a breastfeeding friendly employer as well!
