The New Mexico Baby-Friendly™ Hospital Project strives to support healthcare providers in the state of New Mexico by:
1) Developing curricula for medical and nursing schools
3) Creating networking opportunities within and across disciplines
Becoming Baby-Friendly™ involves giving patients the information, confidence, and skills necessary to successfully initiate and continue nursing their babies. This effort is based on a 1991 World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) set of criteria established to offer an optimal level of care for infant feeding and mother/baby bonding. Birthing facilities who become Baby-Friendly™ successfully implement the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding  and comply with the International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes .
