The American Academy of Pediatrics has long advocated breastfeeding as the best nutrition for baby's short- and long-term health. In the CDC's national assessment of Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care, Littleton Adventist Hospital's overall score was above both the national and the state average in breastfeeding-related maternity care practices. We have a 95 percent breastfeeding initiation rate.

Car Seat Safety Check
Installing a car seat can be challenging. Littleton Adventist Hospital’s Child Passenger Safety technician can help you properly use and install a car seat on your own.
Before the Car Seat Checkup
- Be prepared to learn, not just watch the CPS technician install the car seat. They are trained to teach you.
- Try to schedule an appointment one to two months prior to your baby’s due date just in case you deliver early.
- Do your best to install the seat in your vehicle before your car seat checkup appointment. Please read the instructions that came with the child car seat and the instructions in your vehicle owner’s manual regarding car seats.
- Bring the car seat instructions and the vehicle owner’s manual with you to your appointment.
Please call the Littleton Adventist Hospital family life department to schedule an appointment at 303.730.5810. Car seat checks are offered on the 1st Tuesday and 3rd Friday of each month. No walk-ins are accepted; appointments are required.
Mother's Milk Bank
Littleton Adventist Hospital is proud to partner with Mother's Milk Bank (MMB), a Colorado based nonprofit program that collects, processes, tests, and provides human donor milk to babies across the country. Babies who receive the milk may be premature or have severe illnesses and need human milk to thrive. Human milk benefits infants through nutritional, immunological, developmental, social, economic and environmental reasons.
Are you interested in becoming a milk donor? You are likely to qualify as a donor if you are:
- In good health
- A non-smoker
- Not taking medications on a regular basis
- A person with an abundant supply of milk
Milk donors must undergo a blood test and health screening, be willing to donate a minimum of 150 ounces total and have a medical release form signed by the mother’s and baby’s doctors.
