Breastfeeding Information & Support
The Oklahoma State Department of Health views breastfeeding as the normal way of feeding babies. Breastfeeding helps babies get the best start in life. It helps children reach their full potential for health and growth.
The Oklahoma State Department of Health is working to achieve the goals set by Healthy People 2020, through breastfeeding promotion, education and support to health care providers, OSDH staff and the community.
For more information on state and national breastfeeding rates, visit the Centers for Disease Control - Breastfeeding Data and Statistics.
