Among Latinas, the benefits of breastfeeding are already well established. A 2010 Centers for Disease Control report shows that among new mothers, Latinas are most likely to breastfeed their babies. More than 80 percent of new Latina mamis breastfeed their newborns, and at six months out, Latinas still lead the way, with 45 percent still breastfeeding—more than any other ethnic group in the U.S. Latina moms living in the U.S. but born in other countries show even higher rates of breastfeeding, perhaps as a result of public health programs in the 80s and 90s intended to promote breastfeeding in Central and South America.
