CDC releases breastfeeding report card

The CDC is committed to increasing breastfeeding rates throughout the United States and to promoting and supporting optimal breastfeeding practices toward the ultimate goal of improving the public's health. The CDC Breastfeeding Report Card brings together state-by-state information to help tell the story of breastfeeding practices throughout the country. http://www.cdc.gov/breastfeeding/pdf/2014breastfeedingreportcard.pdf

There are many ways that communities can support mothers and babies that breastfeed. Everyone plays a role in supporting this important health practice, including employers, hospitals, and community leaders. Link to resources: http://www.cdc.gov/breastfeeding/resources/guide.htm
