In this Thursday, Dec. 11, 2014 photo, Irena Bottoms feeds her baby as mothers and supportive family members attend a monthly gathering that promotes breast-feeding at a YMCA in Milwaukee. Mothers frequently nurse their babies during the meetings, or feed them bottled breast milk. Breast-feeding is thought to help protect against higher rates of infant mortality and childhood obesity, to more breast cancer deaths and heart disease in adults - and it's much less common among U.S. black women than in whites and others. Rates have improved in recent years but the disparity remains. (AP Photo/Darren Hauck)
