Breastfeeding After a Natural Disaster

Author: CDC & OTIS
Resource type: Article

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and OTIS.

Although it mentions the benefits of breastfeeding and some information about how to formula feed the main focus of the leaflet is to inform about the potential things that a mother might be exposed to during an emergency and how these might be passed on through to the infant through breastmilk e.g. vaccines, infections, medications, insect repellents, cleaning agents and pollutants.

Although the bottom reference is to CDC it is not on their website but on the OTIS one that specialised in teratology, which is the study of the effects that drugs, medications, chemicals and other exposures may have on the fetus.

In English and Spanish. Date not known.
