Child care practices can strongly influence whether or not many breastfeeding parents reach their goals
Most breastfeeding parents return to work or school while their babies are very young. When childcare providers are knowledgeable in how to support breastfeeding, they help families continue to provide optimal nurturing and nutrition for their babies.
