Breastfeeding Support

The OECE’s position on breastfeeding is that ECE services must provide breastfeeding-friendly environments and facilities (see About Us). Breastfeeding supports early brain development and assists infants to maintain better health in group ECE settings when exposed to a range of illnesses.   The OECE provides a sample breastfeeding policy for ECE services, a breastfeeding-friendly childcare checklist, and has published research in this area.
