Breastfeeding Friendly San Diego
Many new mothers return to work or school within the first three months of their child’s life and choose to stop breastfeeding due to concerns about placing their infant in child care and pumping at work.
Increasing the number of breastfeeding-friendly childcare sites in San Diego County breaks down barriers to continued breastfeeding, which means healthier babies, healthier moms, and healthier future generations.
Breastfeeding-Friendly San Diego (BFSD) is a project of Live Well San Diego: Healthy Works and implemented by UC San Diego Center for Community Health. This work supports Live Well San Diego, the County vision of a region that is Building Better Health, Living Safely, and Thriving. BFSD is made possible with funding from First 5 San Diego through the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency.
