The Intergenerational Continuity of Breastfeeding Intention, Initiation, and Duration: A Systematic Review
In studies investigating predictors of breastfeeding behaviors, it is not uncommon for researchers to adjust for participants’ having been breastfed as an infant. This assumes an intergenerational effect of breastfeeding continuity. Our aim was to investigate the veracity of that assumption. Specifically, we sought to summarize and evaluate evidence of associations between breastfeeding in one generation and breastfeeding intentions and behaviors in the second generation.
