Data from three Maternity Practices in Infant Nutrition and Care surveys found that the percentage of hospitals that reported providing breast milk to at least 90% of babies in neonatal intensive care units rose from 21% in 2007 to 31% in 2011. Researchers said the data show that more can be done, including providing more aid for mothers in expressing milk. The findings appear in the journal Pediatrics.
