Welcome to the State of California 


Breastfeeding is the first step to a healthy life and forms a natural and lasting bond between mother and child.  The more a mother breastfeeds, the greater will be the benefits to mother and baby.  For this reason, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) highly recommends babies be fed only breastmilk for the first six months of life.  Breastfeeding together with healthy foods is recommended to continue as long as mother and baby desire.
