    Progressing Toward National Breastfeeding Goals : United States, 2016.

    Breastfeeding, with its many known health benefits for infants, children, and mothers, is a key strategy to improve public health. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that infants be exclusively breastfed for about the first 6 months with continued breastfeeding alongside introduction of complementary foods for at least 1 year. To track our nation’s progress, the CDC Breastfeeding Report Card provides a compilation of data on breastfeeding practices and supports in all U.S. states, the District of Columbia (D.C.), and Puerto Rico.
