Breastfeeding Friendly San Diego Partner Highlight
Jennifer Orozco is the owner of Little Hands, Big Smiles. She has an educational background in health science, is a proud military wife, and is a mother to four children. Ms. Orozco decided to open a family child care home because she knows how difficult it is for parents to leave their kids, so she wanted to create a safe and loving environment where kids can be happy and have fun. Ms. Orozco decided to become a Breastfeeding-Friendly San Diego partner because she knows the importance of breastfeeding and the support that mothers and families need. In her own experience, breastfeeding support was something she did not receive so she knows, first-hand, how essential it is. She says, “Breastfeeding creates a special bond between mom and baby, which is so important when moms have to leave their children in daycare.” Ms. Orozco believes that the BFSD program has provided the education for her to support breastfeeding mothers. She feels that it has enabled her to take a different perspective on how to be compassionate to mothers and has offered new ideas on how to support parents. Please help us congratulate Little Hands, Big Smiles on becoming a Breastfeeding Friendly site!
