The Breastfeeding Infant Development Support Alliance is a growing community of manufacturers, retailers, breastfeeding advocates, maternal health advocates and healthcare professionals committed to ensuring the safety and continued availability of products used by parents and caregivers in support of breastfeeding and infant development.
The stark reality is that Infant Feeding Support products – lovingly called nursing pillows by moms, caregivers, and healthcare representatives – are under threat by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Despite progress in developing an ASTM safety standard for these important products, the CPSC released its 2023 Performance Budget Request to Congress with a line item on page 29 to Expand Scope of Infant Pillow Ban. The published intention demonstrates the CPSC’s possible willingness to preemptively take regulatory or enforcement action against safe, important products.
Given these risks, the Alliance has a singular goal:
Protect the future of Infant Feeding Support products.
