  1. Efficacy of home-based peer counselling to promote exclusive breastfeeding : a randomised control trial.

    Article - En anglais

    Background :

    Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended worldwide but not commonly practised.

    We undertook a randomised controlled study of the efficacy of home-based peer counselling to increase the proportion of exclusive breastfeeding among mothers and infants residing in periurban Mexico City. (...) Interpretation : This is the first reported community-based randomised trial of breastfeeding promotion.

    Early and repeated contact with peer counsellors was associated with a significant increase in breastfeeding exclusivity and duration.

    The two-fold decrease in diarrhoea demonstrates the importance of breastfeeding promotion to infant health.
