Abstract

World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding till 6 months of age .It has been clearly proven that breastfeeding protects children against infections disease, allergies, adult disease and promotes physical, motor-mental development .In addition, it benefits the mother in reducing anemia, breast and ovarian cancers, is cost effective and helps fertility control. Therefore the present study was undertaken at Safdarjung Hospital (an urban care tertiary centre, catering to diverse strata of population both literate and illiterate) to study breast feeding practices among mothers and its correlation, if any, with their literacy.
