The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends breastfeeding for at least 1 year and beyond for as long as mutually desired by mother and child.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends breastfeeding for at least 2 years and beyond for as long as mutually desired by mother and child.
Breastfeeding Support Groups are dedicated to providing education, information, support and encouragement to women who want to breast feed.
Breastfeeding is a simple and natural process, but you may need support and information on the correct positioning of the baby at the breast, working and breastfeeding, avoiding problems and overcoming any difficulties that may occur. Knowing other women who have breastfed their babies can be helpful and reassuring. Having accurate, up-to-date information is also important.
Attending meetings can help you learn about breastfeeding from other nursing mothers. Mothers share not only their questions and concerns, but also the benefits and joys of breastfeeding. These groups can give you the network of support you need. All breastfeeding mothers and mothers-to-be interested in breastfeeding are welcome to come to our meetings or call one of our Leaders for breastfeeding help or information. Babies are always welcome and encouraged to be with mom at our meetings.
