— The United States Food and Drug Administration is expanding the number of places where pregnant women can get breastmilk in a baby food pack.
The agency says that it is expanding availability of baby foods to all women and babies, with the goal of giving all women a safe, convenient way to receive breastmilks.
The new rules are in line with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). “
As part of our efforts to expand access to breastmilkbooks, we’re working to broaden the reach of the new products to all pregnant women and infants.”
The new rules are in line with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
The FDA has made it possible for women to get breastfeeds without having to worry about where to purchase them.
Gottlieb also said the FDA is expanding distribution of baby food and formula through health insurance plans.
Pregnant women should expect to receive a supply of breastmilker within 30 days of delivery, while pregnant women with infants younger than 12 months will receive a supplement within 30 to 60 days of birth.
