Breastfeeding is good not only for infants and mothers, but also for employers with benefits including lower health-care costs, absenteeism, and turnover rates. Businesses interested in joining the list of recognized organizations can find resources for supporting their employees and the simple application by visiting www.ndhealth.gov/breastfeeding.
