Breastfeeding is a wonderful way to nourish and bond with your baby. Not only is breastmilk the optimal nutrition for your baby, but it is also high in proteins that help develop the gastrointestinal tract, the immune system, and the brain. Breastmilk also has many antibodies that help fight respiratory and gastrointestinal infections. Human milk is the ultimate superfood and the only food needed to sustain life for the first 6 months!

CPCMG knows that being a parent to a newborn can be very stressful, especially if you’re a first-time mom. Postpartum hormones, lack of sleep and lack of a support system can be very challenging if you want to breastfeed your baby.

Our team of International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC) is ready to support your breastfeeding journey. These specially trained CPCMG pediatricians and nurse practitioners will provide you with the tools and resources to breastfeed effectively and for as long as you and your baby desire.

A word about COVID-19 vaccinations and breastfeeding:

COVID-19 vaccination is highly recommended while breastfeeding.  Researchers have found that women who get vaccinated against COVID-19 while breastfeeding pass antibodies to their children through their milk, providing breastfed babies with a layer of protection against COVID-19.

Human milk is the ultimate superfood and the only food needed to sustain life for the first 6 months!

For more information and to schedule a consultation with an IBCLC, please ask your CPCMG Pediatrician to refer you to our Lactation Team.
