Driven by the mission to promote and support breastfeeding in the community, SDCBC aims to support approximately 40,000 babies born in San Diego County every year. With close to 70% of infants losing out on breast milk after six months of age, SDCBC was formed to promote the benefits of longer term breastfeeding for infants, mothers, families, and society at large. The organization was formed in 1994 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) association combined of private and public organizations and individuals, increasing education and support for breastfeeding.
