Need For Services


In the US, many infants are routinely cared for by someone other than a parent.
About half of these infants attend child care centers; the other half spend time in a
variety of home-based settings including licensed family child care homes or the
home of a family member, friend, or neighbor. Thus, child care facilities both
family child care homes and child care centers play an important role in
supporting breastfeeding among mothers whose infants are cared for in these
facilities(CDC, 2013)

Benefits of Breastfeeding
The experience of breastfeeding is special for so many reasons, including:
The joyful closeness and bonding with your baby
The specific nutrition only you can provide
The cost savings

When you choose to breastfeed, you make an investment in your baby's future.
Breastfeeding allows you to make the food that is perfect for your baby. Your milk
gives your baby the healthy start that will last a lifetime.
Breastfeeding also:
Protects your baby
Benefits your health
May make your life easier
