Meet ILCA Board member Janet Jones! She is a proud mother of 3 breastfed children, an IBCLC, and the CEO and Co-Owner of Breastfeeding Success Company which is the exclusive provider of lactation services for a network of hospitals in Central Texas, USA. Janet’s vision for ILCA is to focus on the creation of formal career ladders with the partnerships between non-profits, NGOs, government agencies, and community-based peer counseling programs. She believes establishing career ladders for all lactation support providers from diverse backgrounds is one way to further ensure ongoing quality lactation care in marginalized communities and build skill sets to overcome systemic barriers.

Around the globe, parents’ options and choices about feeding their infants and young children are influenced by an ever-changing patchwork of laws and policies.

Has your work as a lactation professional brought you up close and personal with such a law or policy? And would you like to share what you’ve learned?

If so, you may want to consider a submission to the Journal of Human Lactation’s (JHL) upcoming special issue covering this topic.

Code at 40 - Voices of Mothers

The Code at 40: what do mothers tell us about how marketing of commercial milk formula has impacted their lives?

As lactation consultants, we hear every day about the impact of predatory marketing on the families we work with. This is why we call on governments and health care organizations to monitor, enforce, and uphold the Code.

As a part of our efforts to advocate for enactment and enforcement of the Code, ILCA elevated these central voices as a part of the Global Breastfeeding Collective's 40th anniversary celebration.

The Code at 40: While much has been achieved by the Code, there is still much to be done to ensure babies are put before profits.

As a part of our advocacy in support of the Code, ILCA calls on governments and health care professional organizations to actively uphold the Code, and provides support for members and the global community in efforts to further monitor and enact the Code.
