Breastfeeding

Children’s Medical Center is fortunate to have on staff a Lactation Educator who is able to help with breastfeeding questions and issues. It is our goal to help support nursing mothers in any way we can if they chose to breastfeed their babies.

The information below is an online supplement to our clinic services and is provided by trusted medical professionals. We encourage you to review it and to contact our offices if you have any concerns about your child’s wellbeing.

Water

There is enough water in formula and breast milk to meet your babies needs, so no extra water is really needed. It may be offered during hot weather or when baby is ill. Once your baby starts eating solid foods, he may require more water.
