Sault Area Hospital promotes breastfeeding as the best source of nutrition for babies. The Canadian Institute of Child Health, Health Canada, and the World Health Organization recommend that all newborns be exclusively breastfed.

We encourage parents to evaluate both breastfeeding and formula feeding in order to make an informed decision. How you choose to feed your baby is your choice! Only you can make the best choice for your newborn.  We support your feeding choice.  We will provide information and support for either breastfeeding or formula feeding.
