CDC: Number of women who breastfeed continues to rise

The rate of women who breastfeed their babies for some period of time after birth inched up in the latest report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, continuing a multiyear trend.

More than 8 of 10 babies born in the United States are breastfed from birth, though researchers say just over half are still breastfeeding when they are six months old -- less than the goal set by the CDC, according to the just-published 2016 Breastfeeding Report Card.
