dutch doubled bf rates in 5 years

Post by fellare » Wed Apr 22, 2015 11:45 am

Impressive, but still sad. The dutch went from 18% at 6 months to 39%.

Named causes are improved consultation by the sounds of it it actually gets discussed now and breastfeeding welcome here stickers! I'm not surprised the last one works well.

What are the Dutch BFing initiation rates like?

Improved consultation and getting the message across that it's acceptable to BF in public - those are battles here too.

80% starting rate. Bit higher for the educated.

Ordered a pack of bwh stickers to do my bit. If it's up to me every shop in every town will be plastered by time I leave.
