Breast Fed Babies are Welcome
Breastmilk is the best source of nutrition for babies. Breastmilk is easy to digest and helps keep babies health by boosting their immune system. We encourage moms who are breastfeeding to come in and feed their babies or bring in breast milk if they prefer. Breast milk must be dated and have child’s name written on the bag.
