Infant feeding practices at routine PMTCT sites, South Africa: results of a prospective observational study amongst HIV exposed and unexposed infants - birth to 9 months
International Breastfeeding Journal, 04/24/2012Goga AE et al.
Although feeding practices were poor amongst HIV–positive and –negative mothers, HIV–positive mothers undertake safer infant feeding practices, possibly due to counseling provided through the routine PMTCT programme. The data on differences in infant outcome by feeding practice and site validate the WHO 2009 recommendations that site differences should guide feeding practices amongst HIV–positive mothers.
