Colorado Breastfeeding Coalition

Founded in 1990, the Colorado Breastfeeding Coalition, COBFC is a volunteer organization comprised of physicians, nurses, public health officials, dietitians, lactation consultants, counselors, and members of the business community who have led the way for Colorado children to be breastfeeding at the highest rates in the nation. The coalition works closely with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children to reach communities which have historically had low breastfeeding rates.
