Breastfeeding-Friendly Childcare Guide

First Food developed a Breastfeeding-Friendly Child Care Guide to explain how child care programs can best support breast/chestfeeding parents and their children in their care, by following national breastfeeding and infant feeding standards.

 

For more information on how to acquire the guide, please reach out to Devon Gilinger at dgilinger@paaap.org

Breastfeeding Welcome Here Guide

Breastfeeding mothers need the community's support. First Food supports businesses that support breastfeeding families through the “Breastfeeding Welcome Here” campaign. This campaign aims for businesses to:
 

  • Demonstrate their support for breastfeeding

  • Display the "Breastfeeding Welcome Here" window decal visibly.

Library Story Kits

In an effort to educate communities across Pennsylvania about the

importance of human milk as "First Food," we have developed a free Breastfeeding Library Story Kits as a story time resource for libraries to help normalize breastfeeding! Libraries and librarians play a unique role in providing health information and have an opportunity to improve public support of chest/breastfeeding by ensuring that children's collections include picture books that depict breastfeeding in other mammals, in an age-appropriate manner.

If you or anyone you know is interested in learning more about the story-kit, please contact Bridget Neumaier at bneumaier@paaap.org
