Support breastfeeding today for a healthier Kansas tomorrow

 

 

80% of Kansas mothers

initiate breastfeeding. We want to see this number grow.

 

 

 

About 35,000 babies

are born in Kansas each year and each one deserves a full, healthy life.

 

 

 

6 months exclusively

to 2 years with other foods is how long it’s recommended that a child be breastfed.
