The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) was created by the United Nations Children’s Fund and the World Health Organization. Boston Medical Center (BMC) worked with Baby-Friendly USA, the national authority for the BFHI in the United States, to achieve the Baby-Friendly designation. The following breastfeeding policies are currently in use at Boston Medical Center. Others are welcome to use or adapt these policies in their own institution.
