What are the breastfeeding rates like in your state? Do you know lots of moms who breastfeed/pump? Do you see moms nursing in public around you?

http://www.cdc.gov/breastfeeding/pdf...ReportCard.pdf (second page is a chart broken down by state)

Maryland has 27% of babies still breastfeeding at 12 months. I don't know a lot of moms really, but those I do know didn't breastfeed that long, I don't think. I very rarely see a mom nursing in public.

Florida is 20.2% at 12 months. I am trying to think if I have ever seen someone breatfeed in public in the 7 years I have lived here though .. not that I can remember. Then again I don't either. I just haven't figured out how to make it work for two without all my pillows and support at home. They get bottle of expressed milk when we are out, or in rare cases formula if I don't have any milk left.

I don't know very many moms with infants. Of the two that I have worked with in the last few years, one pumped at work and one was exclusively formula feeding.
