Choosing to breastfeed is one of the best choices you can make for your child. In addition to being a great bonding experience, breastmilk has everything your baby needs to grow and develop. To encourage families to breastfeed, support is needed from their employers, health care providers, schools, childcare providers and the community to be successful.
