Not to rain on the parade, because that IS good news, but I'm really curious what the numbers are right now as to mothers who bf for one year. In 1992 that number was less than 10%.

Yeah, it would be interesting to see. They probably were counting even if they breastfed for only 2 or 3 days in the surveys for this.... But its good news non the less!
