Virtua, along with many leading health organizations, recommends that infants breastfeed for at least 12 months, with exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months.
This means that babies are not given any foods or liquids other than breast milk for the first 6 months. The information below is provided to help you successfully breastfeed your baby.
Virtua offers both in person consultation or real-time video conferencing via a new service called Virtua eVisits. Schedule a one-on-one support session by calling 1-888-VIRTUA-3 or register online below.
* For a limited time, moms who purchase a 1-hour personalized, in-office consultation will also receive a complementary 15-minute "video eVisit" follow-up appointment in the comfort of their home.
