Breast is best

ABOUT 89 percent of local new mothers insist on breast feeding their newborn babies for the first six months after delivery, rising from 12.7 percent in 1992, the Shanghai Health Bureau said yesterday, the Mother's Day.

However, the survey of 7,900 parents found only 28 percent of mothers insist on breast feeding after they return to work. Mothers in Shanghai usually enjoy four to four and a half months of maternity leave.
