Acculturation and breastfeeding on the United States-Mexico border.
Previous studies have demonstrated a strong association between breastfeeding incidence and ethnic background, indicating the presence of strong cultural influences on infant-feeding patterns within ethnic groups.
This study analyzed the relationship of acculturation into the United States, one aspect of ethnicity, to the initiation of breastfeeding among a sample of 213 women recruited approximately 2 months prenatally in the United States-Mexico border city of Brownsville, Texas.
An in-depth, structured interview was conducted at that time (n=213), at the time of birth (n=207), and 2 to 3 weeks postnatally (n=206).
