Breast Feeding at 6-8 Week Check

26 November 2018

According to the latest statistics covering the 2017-18 financial year, 47.2% of babies across Northamptonshire were being totally or partially breast fed at the time of their 6-8 week check. This rate has increased by 3.9%-points compared to the previous year, however please be aware that following clarification from Public Health England, Northamptonshire's data capture for 2017-18 for the first time included babies with checks which were delayed until after they were 8 weeks old. This may account for some or all of the increase.

Nevertheless, the county's rate is above the England average of 42.7%.

For the full timeseries please see the Breast Feeding Dataview.
