Baby-Friendly designated hospitals and birthing centers are located in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Every hospital that attains the Baby-Friendly designation moves us closer to meeting important public health goals of increasing the proportion of live births that occur in facilities that uphold the highest standards for infant feeding care. In 2007, less than 3% of US births occurred in approximately 60 Baby-Friendly designated facilities. In 2018, these numbers have risen to more than 25% of births in more than 500 Baby-Friendly designated facilities.
