Abstract
  • Differences in breastfeeding by income and race/ethnicity are well-documented, but less research examines the effect of socioeconomic status on breastfeeding beliefs and practices among African-American women. This study analyzed the relationship between socioeconomic status and breastfeeding attitudes, intentions and duration among 428 African-American women living in central North Carolina enrolled in the Mothers and Others randomized controlled trial. Quantitative analysis was supplemented by interviews of African-American mothers of differing socio-economic statuses to contextualize this relationship.
