PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology, results from 2011, 2012 and 2013-2014 are NOT comparable to results from 2010 and earlier.

*** This estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards.

Some sub-group estimates have been suppressed because they did not meet statistical reliability standards; see N.C. CHAMP Technical Notes for more details

1Asked only for those children who were breastfed. Estimated from question: At what age did you first begin to give (CHILD) any formula, food or water other than human milk?

2Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
