Members of the Breastfeeding Committee at the Montefiore Jack D. Weiler Hospital celebrate their recent designation as a Baby-Friendly Birth Facility, a recognition sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).
Baby-Friendly USA is a global program sponsored by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative launched in 1991 to encourage and recognize hospitals and birthing centers that offer an optimal level of care for breastfeeding mothers and their babies. The Baby-Friendly designation is granted after a rigorous on-site survey is completed and hospitals have demonstrated adherence to the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding, which include having breastfeeding policies in writing, consistently training staff on policy implementation and informing all pregnant women about the benefits and management of breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding is a scientifically proven way to nourish a newborn while lowering risks for certain diseases and improving health outcomes for both mothers and babies. Providers at Weiler offer breastfeeding mothers the information, confidence, and skills needed to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding their babies.
