Monday, August 05, 2013 - Sparrow shares tips online for World Breastfeeding Week

It’s World Breastfeeding Week and Sparrow is celebrating by sharing breastfeeding tips for parents on our Facebook page all week.

Breastfeeding is important for the mother as well as for the child because of the nutritional benefits and the psychological bonding between mom and baby.

Last year, Sparrow was selected to participate in Best Fed Beginnings, a first-of-its-kind national effort to significantly improve breastfeeding rates. The selected organizations are working together in a learning collaborative, using proven quality improvement methods to transform their maternity care services in pursuit of “Baby-Friendly” designation.

Check our Facebook page, for tips each day this week. For more information about breastfeeding and giving birth at Sparrow, visit, and happy World Breastfeeding Week!
