Azad Lab research shows exclusive breastfeeding in hospital associated with longer breastfeeding duration
Our new findings from the CHILD Study show that exclusive breastfeeding during the first few days of life is positively associated with longer-term breastfeeding, while in-hospital formula use is associated with breastfeeding for a significantly shorter duration. This association was especially strong for mothers with lower education. This study was published in Birth.
