Breastfeeding program at a local hospital seeing big results

A Santa Maria hospital has been working harder than ever to educate local moms about the benefits of breastfeeding and it seems it's paying off.

Marian Medical Center says they've seen tremendous results in the past year. Seventy-percent of moms are going home now exclusively breastfeeding. There's also been a 35-percent decrease of formula use at the hospital.

KSBY News Reporter Monica Quintero talked with a mom about why it makes for a win-win situation for her and her baby. Watch the full story tonight on KSBY News at 6:30pm.
