Purpose: The purpose of the website is to have a centralized source of high-quality, evidence-informed, reliable breastfeeding resources aligned with the Baby-Friendly Initiative, to prevent duplication of effort, facilitate knowledge translation and sharing of best practice resources, and provide easy access of these resources directly to organizations in Ontario, healthcare professionals and families.
Resources: Every effort has been made to include high quality, evidence-informed resources that are compatible with the Baby-Friendly Initiative. Resources must meet established criteria to be included, and are reviewed regularly for currency and appropriateness.
