Who We Are
The Fed Is Best Foundation is a non-profit, volunteer organization of parents and health professionals who study the scientific literature on infant feeding and real-life infant feeding experiences of mothers through clinical practice and social media connections. We work to identify dangerous gaps in current breastfeeding protocols, guidelines, and education programs, and provide 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.
Our work honors all the ways babies are fed and nourished by promoting safe, evidence-based practices, and strives to empower parents and parents-to-be with information on how to safely feed their babies, identify feeding risk factors, work with health care providers, recognize signs of feeding issues and related infant health conditions, and avoid infant re-hospitalizations and negative outcomes.

Why We’re Fundraising
We turn to you for fundraising support because as many of you may know, our tiny non-profit organization has had a growth spurt this year!
Not only have we built this informational website, grown our following by leaps and bounds, but we’ve worked tirelessly to produce evidence-based content that aligns with our mission of promoting and educating families on the safest, most brain-protective methods of feeding infants.
We’re looking to top that in the new year – and we’ve got some BIG goals, so we’ll need your help to achieve them!Donate to Fed is Best
