Doing my own early childhood education here so chat function is best for me. I'm interested in hospital policies around breastfeeding--my understanding is that all but one of our delivery hospitals are "baby-friendly." Are there things beyond that or that are alternatives that we could consider?

Yes

same! I feel like what you almost said, or did say, is that impoverished families living in communities of concentrated poverty are essentially more in need "in the Maslovs hierarcy sense" of having their income, community situations must be satisfied before it's reasonable to work on an obesity intervention.... was that the kind of message you wanted to impart? Seems reaonsable

Sara - Do you have example breastfeeding policies from other States that are in place for their state employees that you can share with the State of Delaware for review/consideration?

same as aaron but for private workplaces?
Sara Benjamin-Neelon
01:30:25
Sure—these are easy to pull. RI has one but not the best example.

higher poverty concentrations seems very likely
aaron.schrader
