Nevada's First Baby-Friendly Designated Hospital

Delivering a Baby-Friendly® Experience

Did you know that breastfed babies are usually healthier babies with lower risks of developing asthma, frequent ear infections or even diabetes? As the region’s only Baby-Friendly® designated hospital, Carson Tahoe is proud to support optimal outcomes for moms and their little ones. This prestigious honor, awarded by the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF, is only achieved by a small number of hospitals nationwide. Based on “10 Steps to Successful Breastfeeding,” this international program recognizes birthing facilities that offer mothers the information, confidence, and skills needed to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding their babies. Coupled with the encouragement of breastfeeding, Carson Tahoe incorporates immediate ‘skin-to-skin’ mother-baby contact and 24/7 ‘rooming-in’ to promote bonding and assure a happy, successful birth experience.
