Breastfeeding at highest level15th May 2007

The details in the Infant Feeding Survey, published by the Information Centre, suggest that three-quarters of women breastfeed their babies soon after giving birth.
But women from disadvantaged backgrounds and younger mothers are still less likely to choose to breastfeed their baby. To help address this public health minister Caroline Flint has announced a TV advertising campaign to promote the benefits of breastfeeding.
