I just found this interesting story on my local news (in Utah), and thought I would share.
One interesting paragraph in there about bf in Utah was: Estler stressed the importance of donated milk coming from generally healthy women. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, around 85 percent of Utah women breastfeed their babies. Because of the low rate of cancer, a low number of women who smoke or binge drink, and low obesity rates, Utah women are the perfect candidates to donate milk, according to a news release from Prolacta.
I did not now bf rates in Utah were that high. I wonder at what age babies are that there is still an 85% rate. I sure still feel outnumbered in the extended breastfeeding dept, but I'm sure that is the norm everywhere. If we were not so close to weaning I might look into this.
