Breastfeeding Support Pledge
"We pledge our dedication to breastfeeding as the best nutrition for
babies and families. We further pledge that our breastfeeding
accessory products and literature shall never be used to influence
mothers to switch from breastfeeding to infant formula feeding. Nor
shall our breastfeeding accessory products and literature be used in
any way to promote artificial baby milk." - Olle Larsson, Founder of Medela
Medela Position Statements
Medela's Commitment to Breastfeeding and Breastmilk:Medela
is committed to supporting the WHO Code’s call for commitment to
breastfeeding and breastmilk as the optimal nutrition for the growth,
development and health of babies. We believe it is our obligation to
offer a complete solution from “breast to belly”, of high quality
products that enable mothers to provide the best nutrition of
breastmilk to their babies. With an extensive portfolio of breastpumps,
Medela is committed to also offer solutions that help moms feed their
expressed breastmilk back to their babies. Our existing specialty
feeding devices are effective tools for feeding special needs babies.
In line with the AAP Guidelines on introducing bottle feeding, Medela
is pleased to now offer a conventional system for feeding breastmilk
once breastfeeding is well established. The combination of our
specialty feeding devices and conventional feeding systems helps Medela
realize our obligation and commitment to mothers by offering complete
solutions from “breast to belly”.
