Breastfeeding Initiative

​The goals of the Breastfeeding Initiative are to make breastfeeding the community norm for infant feeding in California exclusively for six months and up to at least the first year of life; ensure that hospitals and health care clinics implement an infant feeding policy; and make lactation accommodation a reality for working women and their employers. Funded by Title V Maternal and Child Block Grant.
