The County of Rockland and the New York State Department of Health both offer programs that encourage and support breastfeeding, and we are excited to be working with the Rockland County Department of Health to help family/group family child care providers and child care centers in Ramapo and Clarkstown become designated as a “Breastfeeding Friendly Child Care Site.”

Guide to the Rights of Breastfeeding Employees in New York

The United States Breastfeeding Committee published the Guide to the Rights of Breastfeeding Employees in New York. Representatives from NYSDOH worked the NYSDOL and the NYS Breastfeeding Coalition on this effort, which was funded through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
