Brazil aggressively promotes nursing — in public and at home

Very interesting read about how breastfeeding is handled in Brazil in contrast to what is being done in the U.S.

"It’s not just that Cariocas are far less body-conscious than Americans. Brazil promotes breastfeeding much more aggressively than the U.S. does, and perhaps as a result, breastfeeding is far more common here. More than half of Brazilian mothers exclusively breastfeed their children until they’re six months old, according to the Health Ministry, compared with 16 percent of American moms."
