The Good, The Bad, and The Baby

US National Breastfeeding Month 2014

August is National Breastfeeding Month in the United States, a campaign backed by the US Department of Health and Human Services’ Office on Women’s Health (say that five times fast). Their website has a great list of local campaign organizers and some serious looking charts and graphs.

A Change in Men’s Perception

 

These are some of the more interesting stats. Apparently there is a rise in the number of women who have tried breastfeeding. And although I personally don’t care if other men are comfortable with me breastfeeding in public, I do believe that comfortable men are more likely to encourage and support their partners.
Despite the facts these charts show, I think this PSA from thebump.com is definitely more eye-catching: Join the Boob-olution!
