BREAKING NEWS, OCTOBER 6, 2015 CDC Vital Signs


Newly released Vital Signs report focused on trends in hospital practices that support breastfeeding. The percentage of hospitals using a majority of the Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding, the global standard for hospital care to support breastfeeding, increased from about 29% in 2007 to almost 54% in 2013, a nearly two-fold increase over six years. Improved hospital care could increase rates of breastfeeding nationwide and contribute to better child health.
