What Mothers Need to Exclusively Breastfeed
Increasing the rate of exclusive breastfeeding is a public-health priority that can improve health outcomes of mothers and babies. Of the identified barriers to exclusive breastfeeding, few are more challenging than those related to mothers’ belief in their ability to breastfeed and their unrealistic expectations of breastfeeding and baby behavior. Learn how a woman’s breastfeeding self-efficacy impacts her feeding decisions, and how the research on self-efficacy should inform our strategies when working with families. Learn also why so many mothers supplement with formula, the role of culture in this decision, and some evidence-based strategies for addressing these issues.
