8 Steps to Breastfeeding Friendly Businesses Toolkit

The Wood County Breastfeeding Coalition developed a great resource that can be used statewide. The 8 Steps to Breastfeeding Friendly Businesses is available in PDF.  The toolkit is not designed to be given out to businesses in its entirety, but to be used by those that are working with businesses in their communities to become breastfeeding friendly. There are a variety of helpful resources included in the toolkit to assist you in helping businesses to become breastfeeding friendly.

Please contact wibreastfeeding@gmail.com with any questions about this resource. The WBC Worksite Committee will continue to discuss this and other resources to further enhance support for employers and breastfeeding employees throughout the state.
