Breastfeeding Data

Breastfeeding lays the foundation for good health in infancy, childhood and adult life.  In Aotearoa New Zealand around 80 percent of babies are exclusively breastfed on discharge from baby-friendly services.  However, this percentage drops significantly six weeks after birth, and at six months.

NZBA keeps breastfeeding data to show progress on its vision to make breastfeeding the cultural norm for Aotearoa New Zealand.
