In honor of World Breastfeeding Week (August 1-7), HHS’s Office on Women’s Health and GSA’s Federal Citizen Information Center have created the FREE Breastfeeding Resources Action Kit. With it, you can:

  • Learn the physical and psychological benefits of breastfeeding for babies and moms.
  • Discover the financial benefits of breastfeeding for families, employers, and communities.
  • Find out how to support breastfeeding in your community.
  • Confidently use breastfeeding tips, and much more.

You can read, download, or print the publications, or order FREE, printed information.
