Breastfeeding figures rise22nd June 2011
New information released by the NHS Information Centre has shown over eight in ten newborns are breastfed "at least once", an increase from six in ten in 1990.
Jane Munro, spokeswoman for the Royal College of Midwives, said: "We know that many women stop breastfeeding when they leave hospital. This is why it is so important that they are able to get advice and support from their midwife, and that there are enough midwives with the time to offer these women the help they need."
