How do I find breastfeeding and formula resources?

Finding reliable and knowledgeable resources that are a “good fit” for you can be tricky. Having resources and education for breastfeeding and formula feeding is important to help guide and support you throughout your feeding journey.

It’s a reality that the system we have in the U.S. makes breastfeeding very difficult, even for families that want to do it. For example, there is no guarantee for accessible in-person lactation support and paid maternity leave. Access to a supportive lactation consultant is important but is often difficult to find. This resource can be so helpful for troubleshooting and offering support during a vulnerable and difficult time.

Similarly, finding support for formula feeding and navigating the many different formula options can be overwhelming. Many parents have questions like “What formula should I start with?” and “Is my baby tolerating the formula?” or “Are organic formulas better?” You can find many differing opinions and sources of information, but it is key to find reliable and trustworthy sources to make the best decision for you and your baby.
