The Breastfeeding-Friendly San Diego (BFSD) program is a self-nomination and recognition program. The San Diego County Breastfeeding Coalition (SDCBC) does not guarantee recognized providers have adhered to the program tenets beyond what providers have self-stated. The BFSD recognition is open to all licensed family childcare homes and childcare centers that take infants.
El programa Pro-Lactancia de San Diego (BFSD) es un programa de auto nominación y reconocimiento. La Coalición de Lactancia Materna del Condado de San Diego (SDCBC) no garantiza que los proveedores reconocidos se hayan adherido a los principios del programa más allá de lo que los proveedores han declarado. El reconocimiento BFSD está abierto a todos los hogares de cuidado infantil familiar con licencia y centros de cuidado infantil que aceptan bebés.
