Breastfeeding is the best way to feed your baby and we are here to help you. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months, followed by continued breastfeeding while introducing foods for at least the first year, and beyond as mother and child desire.
Breastfeeding can seem overwhelming at first- we are here to help you and your baby succeed! The Green County Health Department has three Certified Lactation Counselors who are available by appointment to help you with any breastfeeding questions or concerns. Your health care provider may also be able to refer you to a lactation consultant at your baby’s well check appointments.
