This briefing and infographic from Unicef based on their 2017 survey of infant feeding leads, highlights how support services for mothers and babies are changing in England, and how this could impact breastfeeding rates.

“Special attention is needed in policies designed to protect and support the most vulnerable, such as babies born preterm or sick, into the most disadvantaged families, or to mothers suffering with poor mental health, as these are the babies who are least likely to be breastfed, while needing it the most”.
