Favorite online breastfeeding resources

May 10, 2011

With all of the breastfeeding information available online, it can be tricky to find a trusted, reliable source for good breastfeeding support.

So we asked you on Facebook where you go for breastfeeding information on the web.   Here’s where you told us you go:

We love this list, and would like to add a few of our favorites:

  • Best for Babes (for support, inspiration, and advocacy - and a Motherlove sponsored organization!)

Want to know if a site is giving you evidence-based information?  Look for sites written by board-certified lactation consultants (IBCLCs) or other credentialed breastfeeding support people.  It’s best to steer clear of sites that violate the International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes (a dead give away:  they’re sponsored by companies that are trying to sell formula).
