Increasing breastfeeding and Aboriginal children’s health through culturally appropriate and responsive support
Associate Professor Philippa Middleton
Breastfeeding is one of the most important health behaviours for survival, growth, development and overall health of the child, yet only half of Aboriginal babies are being breastfed at 6 months, and only 7% are exclusively breastfed. Infant and child nutrition, especially breastfeeding, is consistently identified as one of the highest priorities for action by Aboriginal communities in SA.
