BREASTFEEDING RESOURCES

We are working on a comprehensive guide to breastfeeding and Down syndrome, including a book and video. Please enjoy what we have available today but check back in August 2017 for further resources. And, if we are missing something please contact us and let us know!

Many, if not most, children with Down Syndrome are capable of breastfeeding. However, it frequently takes them a little longer. Many moms committed to breastfeeding pump for their babies for a few weeks or months before they are strong enough to nurse on their own. The best advice is to seek out the support and advice of an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant who believes in your baby's ability to nurse and can support you through the journey.
