  • Bolton has higher breastfeeding rates at both initiation and 6-8 weeks than is average for the North West region, but the Bolton prevalence is much lower than the national average in both cases;
  • Over recent years, breastfeeding initiation has been increasing but prevalence at 6-8 weeks is more static locally, regionally, and nationally;
  • In Bolton there persists an inequality gradient between the most and least deprived fifths of the population with breastfeeding at initiation and 6-8 weeks significantly higher for the least deprived;
  • This inequality translates across the geography of Bolton with the more deprived predominantly White British areas having a lower prevalence of breastfeeding (Breightmet, Farnworth etc.).
