C.A.R.E.-WHO Alliance Membership Benefits

Our Allies truly care about moms and babies and protecting healthy infant feeding– we know that and we position them as trustworthy for expecting moms, new parents, and the public through our outreach into the community and our media partners.  In 2012, Mothering.com (with over 2.5 million visitors per month) recently highlighted our C.A.R.E-WHO Alliance, in an article about the most important initiatives in breastfeeding. In 2013, the Alliance and each of it’s 2013 members were featured in Fit Pregnancy’s 25th Anniversary Editor’s Page Coverage (Aug/Sept 2013):  Best Reasons to Have a Baby Now, naming BFB and it’s Alliance, and listing each Ally by name. We love letting the media, moms and other businesses know which companies really have moms’ and babies’ backs!  It is our intention that your business boom right along with the number of moms who succeed at breastfeeding!
