Honoring Black Breastfeeding Week
On her blog The Mommy in Shani, Shani James shares her perspective on breastfeeding in celebration of Black Breastfeeding Week (August 25 - 31, 2017). Breastfeeding is a known protective factor for sudden unexpected infant death (SUID), also known as sleep-related infant death, and is associated with a variety of positive health outcomes. Shani is a member of Colorado's Infant Safe Sleep Partnership and the Community Action Network collective impact initiative to prevent black infant mortality in Colorado, coordinated out of Families Forward Resource Center.
