Recent trends in infant nutrition.
International Meeting on Advances in Perinatal and Pediatric Nutrition. Manchester, GBR, 1997/09.
Two recent studies have been carried out on the feeding practices of infants in the UK.
The national survey of infant feeding reveals that although overall breast-feeding rates have improved over recent years, rates among sectors of the population with low rates have not improved.
A survey of infants of Asian parentage living in the UK showed high initial rates of breast-feeding that declined until at age 4 mo they matched those of the general population.
Breast-feeding rates among mothers of preterm infants has improved, but studies reveal that there is potential to improve these rates further.
Mothers require practical help with breast-feeding and health care professionals need to improve practical skills to meet this need.
