Today's (8/9/2011) Wall Street Journal had a nice article about how and why public-health officials are shifting tactics to encourage breastfeeding.  It states that the goverment's objective is to raise the "exclusive" breastfeeding rate (up to 6 months), with NO supplementation from 15% to 60% by the end of the decade.

 

Worst States:

Louisiana

Mississippi

Alabama

West Virginia

South Carolina

 

Top Five States:

Vermont

Oregon

Utah

Idaho

Montana

 

Unfortunately, the Wall Street Journal requires a subscription to read the full article, but here's the link anyway.
