Urge Congress to Increase Funding for CDC Breastfeeding Programs
Human milk feeding is an essential part of establishing good nutrition, healthy weight, and reducing the risk of chronic disease, but too often families are faced with barriers that make it difficult or impossible to meet their infant feeding goals. 

The CDC Hospitals Promoting Breastfeeding program provides critical support to advance breastfeeding continuity of care and increase access to lactation-friendly environments in states, hospitals, and communities. These high-value, low-cost public health interventions positively impact the health of communities, and they've never been more important. 

As the United States faces a serious shortage of infant formula, we know that no baby should ever go hungry. As the nation grapples with the immediate and present impact of this emergency, we need to do everything we can to support infant nutrition, including ensuring access to lactation support, supplies, and accommodations, donor milk, and infant formula. Providing $20 million for the CDC Hospitals Promoting Breastfeeding program is a small but critical investment that will help our nation build an infrastructure that protects the nutrition security of infants across the country.
