The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Physicians recommend that all infants receive only human milk for the first six months of life with the introduction of solid foods around six months of age and continued breastfeeding for at least the first year. Breastfeeding optimizes the health and development of the infant and child as well as having many benefits for the mother. For these reasons, Siskiyou Community Health Center provides breastfeeding support to mothers and children of any age.
