The goal of the Baby-Friendly Initiative (BFI) is to protect, promote and support breastfeeding around the world. This means:

  • helping parents and families make informed decisions
  • offering safe and comfortable places to breastfeed
  • teaching the benefits of breastfeeding
  • working with our community to support healthy infant nutrition
  • training our staff in the importance of breastfeeding

The BFI was created by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children's Fund.
