Research has shown that there is no better food than breast milk for the baby’s first year of life. Breastfeeding provides many health, nutritional, economic, and emotional benefits to the mother and baby. There are also significant benefits to the community, workplace and the environment.
With that being said, breastfeeding can be hard. The Oneida County Health Department has many resources available to help! For more information please contact us at 715-369-6109.
