Family Resources

These resources were developed for parents and caregivers.  Some are specific to breastfeeding, the use of human donor milk and the Human Rights Code in the province of British Columbia.  Others provide information on breastfeeding along with a range of topics from pregnancy and caring for your six-month old infant (Baby’s Best Chance) or raising your toddler (Toddler’s First Steps).
