The Advancing Breastfeeding in Colorado (ABC) project seeks to improve health and reduce inequities across the state by creating a seamless system of breastfeeding support for parents and families. Breastfeeding provides numerous benefits and is the healthiest option for parents and infants. However breastfeeding families often face obstacles that make a difference in how long infants are breastfed.
It takes a supportive community environment to help breastfeeding families to be successful. The Public Health Institute at Denver Health promotes and supports breastfeeding friendly policies and practices within businesses, organizations, and public areas so that they are welcoming to all families that are breastfeeding.
