Breastfeeding

According to the CDC, good nutrition and optimal health starts with breastfeeding exclusively for about the first six months of life, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.   Unfortunately only about about half of babies (51.8 percent) are still breastfeeding at 6 months of age.  Use these online resources to help reach your breastfeeding goal!  There are also local support groups for breastfeeding moms & families!  Click here for information from the CDC to answer all your basic breastfeeding questions from how to properly store breast milk to how to safely travel while breastfeeding! 

  Did you know that the Saratoga County Women, Infants, & Children program offers a breastfeeding peer support group?
