Corrected 2021 NSCH Data for Breastfeeding, Formula, and Solid Food

In data released between 2016 and 2021, a processing error caused the reported time in months for breastfeeding, age of first formula, and introduction of solid foods to be incorrectly rounded down by 1 in most cases. The listings below include a data supplement with the corrected values and an updated input file to merge the supplement with the complete topical file.
