COVID-19 Breastfeeding Updates
Although at this time it is noted that the novel coronavirus is a low risk for infants and children we do know that breast milk is an important way we can protect babies. We encourage mothers at this time to practice good hand hygiene and sanitation practices and to practice social distancing. For more information on the CDC's recommendations please see the link below.
The BCD is providing Facebook to send updates of any cancelation of breastfeeding groups in the community. We strongly advise to cancel all in person breastfeeding support groups in our state and encourage utilizing virtual platforms to help continue to stay connected to families.

To address disparities in breastfeeding, the Breastfeeding Coalition of Delaware aims to increase racial, ethnic and language diversity among peer and professional breastfeeding supporters living and/or working in Delaware.
