"The devastating infant formula recall and resulting shortage demonstrate the urgent need to build a robust infrastructure for infant nutrition security with federal policies and programs that ensure access to lactation support, supplies, and accommodations; expand access to pasteurized donor human milk; and ensure the safety of commercial milk formulas. No baby should ever go hungry. The needs of infants must be prioritized in the ongoing national dialogue on food security.
"The U.S. Breastfeeding Committee continues to recognize the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Hospitals Promoting Breastfeeding program as a key facet of the national commitment to human milk feeding. Funding for the Hospitals Promoting Breastfeeding line item goes a long way toward supporting the coordination, monitoring, and quality improvement efforts that are helping to move the needle toward a landscape of breastfeeding support where every infant has equal and equitable access to human milk throughout their first year of life and beyond. While the national strategy did not prioritize this funding, we will continue to call on policymakers to prioritize this critical investment."

Nikia , Thank you for making this statement at the White House conference. We need to publicize the issues about breastfeeding often and loudly!
