The Michigan Breastfeeding Network was contracted by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to complete a landscape analysis of breastfeeding support services in Genesee, Kent and Wayne Counties. These three counties house the three largest cities in Michigan, Flint, Grand Rapids and Detroit, respectively.

The landscape analysis took place over the course of one year and focused on determining strengths, limitations and opportunities for improvement in breastfeeding promotion, protection and support around Michigan. Based on identified opportunities for improvement, the report on the project includes recommendations for the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and a commitment to next steps for strengthening the Michigan breastfeeding landscape.

Breastfeeding stakeholders are encouraged to read the report and join MIBFN to take action on the eight recommendations.
