Health Care Breastfeeding Support
Washington County Dept. of Public Health and Environment
While breastfeeding initiation rates are quite high at 80-90% in Washington County the duration rates are much lower at 53% (WIC data at six months). Breast-fed babies are less likely to become overweight or obese children or adolescents compared to babies who are exclusively bottle-fed. Parents need more consistent messages throughout the continuum of care in order to breastfeed successfully.
