Eliminating Sleep-Related Deaths
According to research, the longer you exclusively breastfeed your baby (meaning not supplementing with formula or solid food), the lower his or her risk of SIDS. Keeping baby safe when breastfeeding means thinking about how tired you are before and during baby's feeding. To help ensure safe breastfeeding practices, and to answer your questions, the Ohio Department of Health has implemented a toll-free 24/7 Statewide Breastfeeding Hotline available to everyone across the state.
It is operated by The Appalachian Breastfeeding Network and staffed by live, trained lactation professionals. Services are available free of charge to all callers, including mothers, their families and partners, expectant parents, and health care providers.
The hotline number is 1-888-588-3423. Learn more here.
