First-of-Its-Kind Program Aims to Reduce Primary Barrier to Breastfeeding for Hourly and Lower-Wage Working Mothers
Date:2/9/2009

als to alert employees to the resources provided by the program.

"Breastfeeding is the gold standard for infant nutrition but for many lower wage moms returning to work is a barrier to extended breastfeeding," said Dr. Larry Williams, senior medical director, Abbott Nutrition. "As a leader in infant nutrition, Abbott's goal is to ensure optimal nutrition for infants, whether mothers choose breastfeeding, infant formula or a combination of both. Abbott has a long history of supporting health professionals and parents with breastfeeding education materials and programs and we're pleased to support this first-of-its kind program as a solution to an issue many working mothers face."

Details on the Toolkit to Support Breastfeeding in the Workplace

Workplace Lactation Programs: Good for Working Families. Good for Business.(TM), available on the Corporate Voices for Working Families website at www.cvworkingfamilies.org, is designed to help front-line managers implement lactation programs and educate hourly and lower-wage employees on how they can make a choice in infant nutrition. Material contained in the toolkit is available in both English and Spanish. The workplace lactation program will be distributed throughout the business community and to healthcare organizations, community groups and government agencies.

The Workplace Lactation toolkit was developed in consultation with a select group of member companies and healthcare professionals, including: Ceridian; CVS Caremark; IBM Corporation; ICF International, Inc.; Knowledge Learning Corporation; LifeCare; Marriott International, Inc.; Metropolitan Life Insurance Company; PNC Financial Services Group, Inc.; and The TJX Companies, Inc.
