I know I've seen other statistics, I think more recent ones, but this is all I could find just now:
Oregon: % ever breastfed- 91.4, % still breastfed at 12 months-37.0
It's amazing that there's such a HUGE range within our country!
Compare where I live to Mississippi! % ever breastfed-48.3, % still breastfed at 12 months- 8.7
So to answer an earlier question about socially acceptability, I would guess it's not socially acceptable in Mississippi before 12 months, and socially acceptable in Oregon well after 12 months.
