does where you live influence your decision to bf or not? it seems to me that people who ff know lots of people who ff and vice versa. where i live (metro nyc), all but a small number of people i know bf. granted, many switch to formula because of work, difficult latch, bad advice/lack of family support, etc...but they all do "go down the bf road" at first. i do know 2 locally who "couldn't be bothered" w/ bf their words, not mine.
i saw on msnbc that of all 50 states, mississippi has the lowest bf rates. my guess is that for the most part if everyone around you bf's you bf or they ff and you ff...of course, there are exceptions, but i can't help but think example is a huge part of the decision (case in point 98% rates in australia).
anyway, what factors are at play here? why is bf more popular in one area than another? again, i've been unable to find a listing of rates by states, i suspect it would be helpful
