Thank you to all of those who joined us in Chicago, Illinois, USA for 

BABY FRIENDLY: NOT JUST ABOUT HOSPITALS OR THE BABY-FRIENDLY HOSPITAL INITIATIVE!

This year’s conference theme is Celebrating Baby Friendly in the Hospital and Beyond: Helping Families Thrive Worldwide. Baby-friendly practices are those that support and promote breastfeeding—in all settings and stages—through the incorporation of the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding. This year’s conference celebrates these practices in hospitals, in clinics and physician offices, and throughout the family’s community. The conference will conclude with a panel discussion on how the Ten Steps fit together in various settings and what the future holds.
