CDC: Breast-feeding rates rise to 77 percent of U.S. moms

Breast-feeding rates are on the rise in the United States. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s 2013 Breast Feeding Report Card found that 77 percent of new mothers are breast-feeding their babies, up from 71 percent about a decade ago. And almost half of breast-feeding moms are continuing to do so for at least the recommended six months.

The new report tracked trends in breast-feeding rates from 2000 through 2010 across the country.

“This is great news for the health of our nation because babies who are breastfed have lower risks of ear and gastrointestinal infections, diabetes and obesity, and mothers who breastfeed have lower risks of breast and ovarian cancers,” said CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden said in a press release.
