Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment would like to congratulate the City of Greeley and ttech (formerly Tele-tech) for receiving the Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite Award. Both employers are doing an outstanding job supporting employed nursing mothers. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies be fed breastmilk exclusively for the first six months, and in combination with nutritious foods for at least one year. Worksite lactation support allows working nursing mothers to follow this recommendation and obtain numerous health benefits for themselves and their baby. Congratulations City of Greeley and ttech!
