Baby Friendly Initiative at The Children's Hospital - Dr. Margaret Fisher

One of the best things we can do to prevent obesity is to start our children out right, with the best nutrition available, which is breast feeding. There is a movement across NJ and the country, that actually came from the World Health Organization to really concentrate on breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding not only is one of the most rewarding experiences of motherhood, it's the healthiest way to feed an infant during the first year of life.

Monmouth Medical Center's new lactation program is designed to provide women with information about the benefits of breastfeeding, as well as the skills to successfully nurse their babies.

As part of this program, inpatient and NICU nursing mothers can schedule a consultation with an internationally certified lactation consultant, a registered nurse with years of experience teaching breastfeeding.
