Idaho Hospital Honor Roll

The following hospitals are recognized for taking steps to discontinue the use of infant formula company discharge bags. Formula companies have long used this type of marketing to encourage mothers to buy formula and discourage breastfeeding. The rate of breastfeeding at six months was higher in states with the best record of banning sample bags.

Thank you for taking this important step to help encourage mothers to breastfeed and prolong the duration of breastfeeding.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC)  released the 2016 Breastfeeding Report Card. Idaho continues to score high in the breastfeeding measures:

92.9% Ever breastfed which is 2nd in the nation

65.4% Breastfeeding at 6 months

39.6% Breastfeeding at 12 months

56.7% Exclusive breastfeeding at 3 months

28.1% Exclusive breastfeeding at 6 months.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that mothers breastfeed for 12 months, and the World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding for two years.


There is increased risk of ear infections, diabetes, obesity, SIDS in
infants who are not breastfed. Not breastfeeding is also linked to a
decrease of 5-10 points IQ. There is increased risk of breast cancer
and ovarian cancer in mothers who do not breastfeed.
