Women's Autonomy in Infant Feeding Decision-Making: A Qualitative Study in Nairobi, Kenya.

Abstract

Exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) is the optimal way to feed young infants. Guidelines recommend that women living with HIV on antiretroviral therapy should EBF for 6 months and continue breastfeeding for up to 24 months or longer. Parents may face social or logistical barriers creating challenges to EBF.
