Breast Feeding is scientifically proven to be the best option for babies, and is encouraged by doctors from birth.

That’s why it’s so weird that it’s become such a controversial topic lately.  It’s even harder to believe that there are states where less than half of moms breast feed.

Here is a breakdown of the top and bottom five breast feeding states.

Moms who ever breastfed – Top 5 states

1. Idaho 90.8%  2. Washington 89.2%  3. Oregon 88.9%

4. California 87.6%  5. Colorado 87.5%

Moms who ever breastfed – Bottom 5 states

46. Arkansas 62.4%  47. Alabama 57.2%  48. West Virginia 55.1%

49. Louisiana 53.5%  50. Mississippi 47.2%

It’s one thing to breast feed at the hospital, but it takes a commitment to maintain it.  That’s why there is such a huge drop off of women who breast feed at six months.

Moms breastfeeding at six months – Top 5 states

1. Oregon 68.1%  2. Utah 64.4%  3. Vermont 61.9%

4. New Hampshire 60%  5. South Dakota 57.1%
