All North Dakota mothers deserve the opportunity to breastfeed their infants, and all infants deserve the opportunity to be breastfed. Ensuring access to comprehensive, interdisciplinary, culturally appropriate lactation and breastfeeding care and services from preconception through weaning will empower women to breastfeed their infants exclusively for at least six months and to continue through the child’s first year of life and beyond while introducing appropriate weaning foods.
Building a healthy North Dakota through connections, communication and working collaboratively with communities to protect, promote and support breastfeeding.
We envision breastfeeding as the norm for feeding infants and young children throughout North Dakota.
Improve connections and communication with our local partnerships by providing resources and support them to meet their goals.
