Childcare facilities help New Mexico breastfeed

Caring for Children and Mothers

Over half of all mothers with infants are employed outside of the home. Childcare centers are in a unique position to support breastfeeding mothers and help build a culture of safety and comfort for nursing parents and children. Breastfeeding Friendly childcare centers:

  • Provide breast milk to infants of mothers who wish to breastfeed
  • Train staff on how to store and heat breastmilk
  • Welcome mothers who want to breastfeed their child on site during the day.
