The medical team at Crestwood Pediatric is committed to promoting the best for your infant. According to the National Healthy People goals, mothers are encouraged to breastfeed their children, thereby offering them the “best” milk and the advantage of immunity transferred from mother to baby.
The current Healthy People goals are that 81.9% of all babies be breastfed at birth, with 60% still nursing at 6 months and at least 25% exclusively nursing at 6 months.
A recent review of newborns followed at our practice, revealed that we exceed those goals. Over 85% of our newborns are breastfed at birth. Of those, 71% were still nursing at age 6 months with the majority of them being still exclusively breast fed.
We have a breastfeeding specialist in-house to support your efforts. We will work with you and your baby to help make breastfeeding successful.
Expecting mothers can call to schedule a complimentary prenatal visit in either of our offices to meet our doctors and tour our facility.
