Thank you for your interest in the Fed is Best Foundation!

Our mission statement is:

The Fed Is Best Foundation works to identify critical gaps in the current breastfeeding protocols, guidelines, and education programs, and provides  families and health professionals with the most up-to-date scientific research, education and resources to practice safe infant feeding, with breast milk, formula or a combination of both.

Above all, we strive to eliminate infant feeding shaming, eliminate preventable hospitalizations for insufficient breastfeeding complications, while prioritizing maternal mental health.

We do not accept donations from breast- or formula-feeding companies and 100% of your donations go toward these operational costs. All the work of the Foundation is achieved via the pro bono and volunteer work of its supporters.
