About this event

The Carolina Breastfeeding-Friendly Child Care (BFCC) Initiative promotes widespread implementation of breastfeeding support in child care settings. Breastfeeding provides the healthiest start in life for infants, but children who are routinely cared for by someone other than their parents are less likely to be breastfed.

Participants will receive a link to a Google Drive with a trainer’s manual & downloadable materials for center use and resources for families. The training is over two days. Both days of training are required for a certificate.
