Half of China’s newborns feed formula powder

From Xinhua,via China Daily:

China’s breast feeding rates are 48.7 percent and 60.4 percent respectively in urban and rural areas, indicating that about half of the country’s newborns are fed with artificial-formula milk powder of various kinds, an official on children’s food safety said…

Chinese experts on infant medical science hold that heavy workloads and life pressures or physical conditions, including the lack of milk, are major reasons leading to young mothers’ failure to breast feed, which was the only choice for feeding newborns in the old times.
