Description

Promoting Responsive Feeding During Breastfeeding, Bottle-Feeding, and the Introduction to Solid Foods addresses how caregiver feeding practices and styles shape the quality and outcome of feeding interactions during infancy. Emphasis is placed on the quality and nature of caregiver-child interactions during breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, and an introduction on how solid foods shape the development of children’s eating behaviors, growth trajectories and chronic disease risk. The book also considers the potential influence of broader contextual factors on early feeding interactions, including how psychological, social, cultural and economic factors may influence caregivers’ abilities to implement feeding recommendations.
