Research has clearly shown that breast-fed babies are healthier than those who are bottle-fed. There has even been research that says there is a correlation between breast-feeding and higher IQ’s. Employers are increasingly recognizing that moms and dads will have to take fewer sick days to care for infants who are breast-fed. Yet it is often difficult to return to work and continue breastfeeding.
There are a number of things the university can do to support new moms in their efforts to both work and continue breastfeeding. Provided on this website is a list of existing lactation rooms across campus. For additional support in locating lactation rooms, contact the Work/Life Resource Center who will be happy to assist you (firstname.lastname@example.org, 734-936-8677)
