Breastfeeding Friendly Childcare Centers


BFANWI would like to thank WALC for it’s support of the Breastfeeding Friendly Childcare Initiative. We are already making a difference for new mothers returning to work in our region!

We received a grant of $1,350. These funds were utilized as follows:

Twenty 3-ring binders –These binders were prepared to distribute to daycare providers to assist in achieving the Breastfeeding Friendly Designation. The Centers have reported back to us that the binders were incredibly helpful and provided the majority of information they needed.

Forty children’s/infant breastfeeding friendly books- We purchased 20 “Best Milk” books by Kate Carothers, 10 “Mama Mama” board books and 10 “Nurtured and Nuzzled” books.

BFAN totes printed for delivery of binders, BFAN mugs, pens, books, etc.

Breastmilk Storage Magnets- We designed and laminated milk storage guidelines for each center at no cost and purchased magnetic strips.

Door Hangers- privacy please! We designed and printed low cost door hangers for use in daycare centers and workplaces.

BFFCC training for Intern and mileage reimbursement. We were very fortunate to have an Intern from UWO working with BFAN on this initiative. She attended the BFFCC training through WBC.

Posters- BFAN was able to find a few breastfeeding friendly posters at no cost.
