Infant Nutrition During a Disaster

Our hearts and thoughts are with all of the families displaced by Hurricane Harvey and with the brave rescuers and generous volunteers providing assistance. Breastfeeding advocates, please share the American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Breastfeeding “Infant Feeding in Disasters and Emergencies” Fact Sheet with friends, family and colleagues in the affected areas so that it may reach Shelter Leaders. This information may help provide support for mothers and babies to breastfeed in shelters.
