Breastfeeding-Friendly Crib Card Project
Free crib cards are now available to Louisiana maternity care facilities!
These breastfeeding-friendly crib cards were developed to encourage early and exclusive breastfeeding, skin to skin contact, rooming-in, avoiding pacifiers (unless medically necessary) and finding support for breastfeeding after discharge. The cards are also meant to replace crib cards provided by commercial entities.
The crib cards are available in both pink and blue. One side of the card is in English, the other in Spanish. To view and download the crib cards click here: Breastfeeding Crib Cards PINK and Breastfeeding Crib Cards BLUE. If you would like to receive a supply of crib cards for your maternity care facility contact Marci Brewer Asling at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The printing of these crib cards was made possible by the Louisiana Women, Infants and Children Program, the Louisiana Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, The Gift and the Louisiana Breastfeeding Coalition.
The LBC would like to thank the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment and the Colorado WIC Program for allowing us to adopt their crib card design. To view Colorado’s breastfeeding-friendly crib cards click here.
