Breastfeeding

Healthy Northland helps create health where we live, work, learn and play. Breastfeeding can happen in any of these settings. That’s what it means to be Breastfeeding Friendly!

New mothers often need good information to get started and keep going. Click here to learn about breastfeeding from the Minnesota Department of Health.

Mothers also need a little help from their employer, from health care providers, schools, and child care providers if they are to be successful. More employers across Minnesota are recognizing the business benefits of supporting breastfeeding mothers who are returning to work. Read more about the Minnesota Department of Health’s Breastfeeding Friendly Recognition Program here.
