Breastfeeding is a personal matter and one that may draw strong opinions from friends, family, and healthcare professionals. While many medical authorities including the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) strongly recommend breastfeeding, you and your baby are unique and the decision is yours alone to make.

We support the right of every individual to breastfeed and promote the health and well-being of all members of our community. According to California Civil Code Section 43.3, “A mother may breastfeed her child in any location, public or private, where the mother and child are authorized to be present.” Know your rights and the benefits of breastfeeding for both you and your child.
