Abstract

In the Netherlands 75% of the mothers start breastfeeding their infants.
After 1 month this is 46% (CBS 2012). International guidelines (WHO)
recommend that mothers should breastfeed until 6 months. In this study
- that is part of a larger Dutch study on mothers’ decisions to stop or to
continue breastfeeding - we focus on mothers’ breastfeeding knowledge.
