Experts recommend:

Breast milk exclusively for the first 6 months. Human milk is the most efficient nutrition for babies. Good nutrition leads to healthy weight development.

 

Mothers are more successful with breastfeeding when they live and

work in supportive communities.

As a part of our "MI Breastfeeding-Friendly Businesses Project," the Michigan Breastfeeding Network (MIBFN) wishes to recognize Michigan employers that go beyond the Break Time for Nursing Mothers requirements to provide workplace support to their breastfeeding employees through our Michigan Breastfeeding-Friendly Workplace Award.

Employers are evaluated based on criteria for three levels of support: Gold, Silver and Bronze. Employers meeting requirements of one of the three critieria levels will be recognized with a certificate as well as recognition on the MIBFN website, social media pages and in a press release to local media.
