"Nearly 10 years ago, the HHS Blueprint for Action on Breastfeeding was released. This was the first comprehensive breastfeeding policy and action plan for the nation and was the result of broad collaboration and public input. Today, more mothers are starting and continuing to breastfeed, but our society has changed dramatically since 2000, and many problems related to breastfeeding persist. These factors point to a need for a new national plan of action. Public input is key to developing this plan.

We are seeking comments from individuals and organizations about breastfeeding in the United States. We welcome your suggestions about policies, activities, or other initiatives to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding that need to be considered for inclusion in our national action plan for the next decade. We are especially interested in new ideas that will increase equity in breastfeeding rates among all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups. Ideas should build on programs and policies that are recognized to be effective or evidence-based. In addition, we welcome suggestions to adopt, expand, implement, research, or improve existing strategies."
