Research shows that there is no better food than breast milk for a baby's first year of life.
Breastfeeding can improve the health of mother and baby. Babies receive nutrients that only you can provide, and mothers can actually lower their risk of developing diseases like cancer and heart disease.
Mothers and babies shouldn't miss out on these benefits. We encourage all mothers to choose breastfeeding for good nutrition from the beginning.
Mississippi state law now upholds your right to breastfeed at work or in any public place.
