American mothers as a whole do not breast-feed their babies as much as health experts would like, but African-American moms have the lowest rates of all — by some measures, they are half as likely to nurse as whites and Hispanics.
KellyMom is sponsored this month by pumpspotting – a breastfeeding app that connects nursing moms over milk and motherhood and helps them to find, rate and share the best places to pump and nurse. They have graciously helped pay our costs this month. Download the app to join the community and nurse, pump, nourish, connect.
