Well from aba website, 15% of babies are exclusively bf at 6 months and in USA, it is under 20% so not much of a difference
The hospital I work in is much the same
Eta: I think I may have worded my previous post wrong. Sorry if you misunderstood. Any woman who makes an informed choice to ff at our hospital will receive education on the correct making, sterilising and storage of formula. The formula must also be brought in by the parents.

But omg at some of the southern states..... 5-6% I wonder why such huge differences between states. Social mores and generational stuff I suspect.
I still stand by my belief that bfing rates are little to do with advertising and more to do with so many confounding factors.
