Why is breastfeeding important?
Research indicates that mothers who are supported in their breastfeeding journey are more likely to breastfeed longer and experience a greater feeling of success. Studies have indicated that babies who are breastfed stay healthier throughout their lives.
While our hospital is committed to helping new moms breastfeed, we understand that sometimes breastfeeding is not possible. A lactation consultant can provide advice on healthy bottle feeding, proper formula preparation and other aspects of feeding your new baby.
