1Formula supplementation is defined as supplementation of breast milk with formula (with or without other supplementary liquids or solids) among infants breastfed at the age specified (2 days, 3 months, or 6 months). The denominator for the 2 day, 3 month, or 6 month rate is the number of infants breastfeeding at 2 days, 3 months, or 6 months, respectively.

Sample sizes appearing in the NIS breastfeeding tables are slightly smaller than the numbers published in other NIS publications due to the fact that in the DNPAO breastfeeding analyses, the sample was limited to records with valid responses to the breastfeeding questions.

Counties and cities not sampled or with sample size <100 on the 2 days' analysis (AL-Jefferson County; AZ-Maricopa County; CA-Alameda County; CA-Fresno County; CA-Northern CA ; CA-San Bernardino County; CA-San Diego County; CA-Santa Clara County; CO-Denver; FL-Duval County; FL-Miami-Dade County; FL-Orange County; GA-Fulton/DeKalb Counties; IL-Madison/St. Clair Counties; KS-Eastern KS; LA-Orleans Parish; MA-City of Boston; MI-City of Detroit; MN-Twin Cities; MO-St. Louis County/City; NJ-City of Newark; NM-Southern NM; NV-Clark County; OH-Cuyahoga County; OH-Franklin County; PA-Allegheny County; TN-Davidson County; TN-Shelby County; WA-King County; and WI-Milwaukee County) are not reported on in this table.
