Breast-feeding support.

Abstract

With the objective of prolonging unsupplemented breast-feeding, three groups of breast-feeding mothers were provided with support by frequent home visits by different types of health workers (including a lay worker). A fourth group received limited support and a fifth group received no support. Significant differences were found between some of the groups, the lay worker having the greatest impact. The results indicate that a home visitation programme could be successful in promoting breast-feeding.
