It All Ends: No More breastfeeding for 6months

It All Ends: No More breastfeeding
Six months is the recommended length of breastfeeding but only 25 per cent of babies are still breastfed by the end of the sixth month. Although more than 80 per cent of mothers start breastfeeding the figure drops to 48 per cent at six weeks.
The study found that African American women breastfeed less than women of other races and that a higher percentage of Black women are more comfortable with the idea of formula-feeding babies.
 Why low breastfeeding and high hospital visits??
