Infant feeding practices have changed over the years. More and more families in New Brunswick are breastfeeding. As a grandparent, support can have a positive effect on a mother’s breastfeeding success. This factsheet aims to provide grand-parents with information on the health benefits of exclusive breastfeeding for babies and their mother, and present a few suggestions on ways to provide proactive support in order to help mothers breastfeed for as long as possible.

This factsheet was created as part of the awareness campaign “Working Together Makes Breastfeeding Better”.

A collaborative initiative from The Wellness Movement,Breastfeeding NB, Horizon Health Network, and Vitalité Health Network
