Hayek Breastfeeding: Why Do We Care?

It's true that some women physically won't produce enough milk for breastfeeding, but Labbok said that the number is lower than the general public thinks -- at least one in 20 women, if not less.

Labbok pointed to short hospital stays, short maternity leave and a lot of cultural influences as a cause for the rates. Some non-nursing mothers use breast milk banks, but the majority just use infant formula.

Labbok said 75 percent of mothers initiate breastfeeding, another 25 percent turn to formula within two days of birth.
