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.
