Background

The Breastfeeding Protocols for Health Care Providers (2013) are intended for use by health care providers to promote, protect and support effective breastfeeding for the families of healthy term infants. As such, the protocols can be viewed as a foundational document for health care providers who provide breastfeeding support services.

Toronto Public Health has also developed e-learning modules based on the protocols.  The modules are intended to support health care professionals and organizations in accessing education for the provision of evidence-based breastfeeding services and the creation of a Baby-Friendly environment.
