We strongly encourage you to breastfeed your baby. We have many resources to help you learn how to do it well.

All of our nurses have special training in breastfeeding. They can help you with positioning your baby so that she can feed well.

Your nurse, doctor or midwife can also refer you to a certified lactation consultant (a person who gives support to breastfeeding mothers). Lactation consultants are available to assist with complex problems in the hospital.

If you decide to use bottles and formula to feed your baby, we will support your choice. Talk to your doctor or midwife about what type of formula to use.
