WorkWell NYC is here to support parents who are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed, and to make sure you know your rights and take advantage of the free resources available to you.
Exclusively breastfeeding for the first six months of your child’s life benefits you and your infant. Even if you can’t breastfeed exclusively, breastfeed as much as possible for the greatest benefit.
