Dads and Breastfeeding Flyer
MHP Salud surveyed 90 breastfeeding mothers, and they said that the baby’s father was the most important person who supported them. This support is crucial as babies fed infant formula are not as healthy as babies fed breast milk. Breastfeeding also helps protect babies from sickness, disease, obesity, asthma, allergies, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. For mothers, breastfeeding helps protect them from heart disease, ovarian cancer and heart cancer.
This informational flyer, available for free to our resource portfolio members, contains information on how dads can support breastfeeding mothers.
