Tribute Donation

Special people deserve special recognition. We invite you to make a gift to Breastfeeding USA in honor of a special person in your life. Your mom perhaps, or grandmother, your best friend, a Breastfeeding USA Counselor, or a favorite aunt. Or consider honoring your partner who co-parents with you to be the best mom or dad "in the whole wide world."

Thanks for stopping by!

We’re so excited to unveil our upgraded website! We couldn’t have done it without the generosity of our donors and members. For their ongoing support of our vision and mission, we are truly appreciative.
This website not only offers a new look and feel, but an improved user experience. It’s easier to connect with a Breastfeeding USA Counselor (BC) and get the personal help that families want and need.

Breastfeeding USA Celebrates 5 years

Five years ago the 40 founders of Breastfeeding USA watched their dream unfold, and although separated by thousands of miles, they celebrated in all corners of the United States and announced a brand new mother-to-mother support organization. On December 10, 2010 our Facebook page went live, with well wishes and sharing of future plans. Two days later the website launched and the organization began accepting memberships from volunteers, and on December 14, from the public. 175 people joined as founding members.

In the years since, we’ve grown to almost 600 member supporters. We hope to gain more community supporters during our December membership drive. If you haven’t joined us yet, please consider what the founders wrote on Facebook five years ago, and be a part of our success. We need your financial support to be the organization that breastfeeding families want and deserve.

#GivingTuesday 2015

Breastfeeding USA has joined #GivingTuesday, a unique blend of partners—charities, families, businesses and individuals—to transform how people think about, talk about and participate in the giving season. Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday, December 1, 2015, inspires people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support and help create a better world. #GivingTuesday will harness the power of social media to create a national moment around the holidays dedicated to giving, similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are, today, synonymous with holiday shopping. ...

Happy Mother's Day!

Let us remember and honor this Mother’s Day, those at the trailhead of their mothering journey with questions and doubts and those who have traveled down the path many times, confident and wise. Let us remember and honor all those in our lives who nurture, love, cherish and mother the children of the world.

Exclusive Pumping

A baby cannot feed at the breast, but her mother knows that human milk offers protection from infection and is easy for her baby’s fragile system to digest. Another mother struggles with her infant’s latch for weeks, despite the support she’s received from lactation specialists, wincing through pain and aware of how slowly the baby is gaining weight. These women want to provide the biologically normal food for their babies; exclusively pumping, either short-term or long-term, enables them and many other women to provide their milk when faced with illness, separation, or other challenges or choices that would otherwise result in partial or complete weaning to formula.
