Breast is best in our capital

DUBLIN mums are taking the Government's advice on breastfeeding. The Rotunda Hospital has the highest percentage of breastfed babies in the country at 57pc. The figures at Holles Street and The Coombe are 52pc and 41pc.

The rates outstrip other areas of the country. Government policy is to promote breastfeeding, and mums in the capital are leading the way.
