This study aims to examine the relationship between knowledge of exclus...
Breastfeeding provides many health benefits for mothers and their infants that span their life course. Despite this, national breastfeeding rates are below benchmarks set by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). Breastfeeding rates in the Detroit low-income population are particularly low.

Maternal breastfeeding intentions are strongly associated with breastfeeding exclusivity and duration. Factors that affect new mothers' exclusive breastfeeding intentions have not been adequately examined.
Given that breastfeeding is important to the health of infants and their mothers, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) goal is to ensure that new mothers understand the benefits of breastfeeding and, when they choose to breastfeed, have the supports they need to successfully initiate and continue breastfeeding until they reach their goals. This report summarizes CDC's current contributions and investments in breastfeeding.
Research has shown that mother's obesity and underweight are major risk factors for reduced initiation, duration, and exclusivity of breastfeeding.

Analyses indicate that mothers receive significant support, particularly from spouses and mater...

The landscape of breastfeeding has changed over the past several decades as more women initiate breastfeeding in the postpartum period and more hospitals are designated as Baby-Friendly Hospitals by following the evidence-based Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding. The number of births in such facilities has increased more than sixfold over the past decade. With more women breastfeeding and stays in the maternity facilities lasting only a few days, the vast majority of continued breastfeeding support occur...

Although there are some individual interventional studies that aimed to increase prolonged breastfeeding rates among both multiparous and primiparous women,...
Breastfeeding is recommended for infants born to HIV-infected women in low-income settings. Both breastfeeding and HIV-infection are energy demanding. Our objective was to explore how exclusive and predominant breastfeeding changes body mass index (BMI) among breastfeeding HIV1-positive women participating in the ANRS12174 trial (clinical trial no NCT0064026).
