In 2016, the Centers for Disease Control came out with their latest report on breastfeeding rates for children born in 2013.
In the United States, 81.1% of babies started out breastfeeding (compared to 79% in 2011). More than half (51.8%) were breastfeeding at 6 months and 30.7% at 12 months.
In the U.S., Mississippi had the lowest rates (52%). Utah had the highest rate (94.4%), followed by Idaho (92.9%) and Oregon (92.5%).
However, Oregon is #1 for longevity, because 45% of moms are still breastfeeding at 12 months.

Many of us will be traveling for the holidays, which reminds me how easy it used to be when my son was a baby and I was breastfeeding.
All of our designs are meant to be roomy in the right areas. Not baggy and not tight. Don't size up! If you're between sizes, size down.
Hoodies: The hoodie designs fit true to size with a roomy fit (see photos below). Usually the dress size (4/6, 8/10 etc.) is the best measurement to follow. If you order your pre-pregnancy size, the hoodies should fit great!
Tanks: Our clip-down tanks are form fitting but not skin tight. If you are a size DD or smaller, order your regular size. If you're larger than a DD, consider both your band size and your current size top. If you have a bra band of 40 (which is a size large), but you typically wear a size XL, size down to a large. We give extra room in the bust for larger chests.
For plus sizes, we follow a standard U.S. plus chart as well. We have learned that someone who considers themselves a XXL (in misses) is not a 2X (plus). The best way for you to determine your size is to measure your band size (right under your chest), the smallest part of your waist, and your hips and follow the chart.

The model below is a true XS (size 2 and 32C). Notice how much room she has in the hips. You can also see the difference between the two sizes. The small is much baggier.
