dc.description.abstractIn the last two decades western societies have witnessed a new-found social and political interest in the promotion of breastfeeding. Scotland has recently passed legislation to make breastfeeding in public a right. However, breastfeeding remains controversial, and many mothers find it difficult or are reluctant to breastfeed. Research shows that breastfeeding is beneficial for babies and so is an important component in tackling health inequalities. This briefing outlines some of the key findings of a research project that investigated the impact of advice on increased take-up of breastfeeding among mothers in Scotland. It was based on the analysis of data derived from the Growing Up in Scotland (GUS) early years longitudinal study funded by the Scottish Government.en
