Local Breastfeeding Services

roleWhether your grandchild is just beginning to breastfeed or has been breastfeeding for many months, sometimes breastfeeding help is needed. Many breastfeeding mothers find friendship and support through mom-to-mom support groups and professional breastfeeding services.

There are many things you can do to show your grandbaby’s parents that you care about their decision to begin breastfeeding and to keep it going. It is valuable for you to know where breastfeeding information and help is located in their community.
