Breast Feeding Support

Breastfeeding is the healthiest option for babies and mothers. The Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding until age two.

However, according to the Colorado Department of Health and Environment, in Colorado only 1 out of 4 infants are breastfed exclusively for the first six months of life and 1 out of 4 infants continue to be breastfed through their first birthday. Breastfeeding mothers need support from their community to be successful.
