The HSE is making breastfeeding progress, but Sabina Higgins is right when she says something huge needs to happen. At the annual ‘latching on’ event at Áras an Uachtaráin last Friday, which heralded the start of National Breastfeeding Week, she said our breastfeeding rate was embarrassing.

Fair comment.
