Infant feeding: Changing the conversation - ecological thinking

Trickey, Heather 2016. Infant feeding: Changing the conversation - ecological thinking. Perspective 133

Full text not available from this repository.


In the UK, difficult experiences of feeding babies are common and decisions are frequently constrained. Mothers often feel pressured and judged. The ecological approach to public health, advocated by UNICEF UK’s Call to Action, has potential to improve the ways we think and talk about feeding. This approach means shifting the focus away from mothers’ decisions and towards improving facilities, support and services at community level and by addressing socio-economic, cultural, environmental and legislative barriers at national level. It also allows us to explore the common ground between a public health agenda and a broader agenda to improve the experiences and social rights of parents.
