    Abstract

    Both observational and recent experimental evidence support the promotion of breastfeeding as the optimal form of infant nutrition. There is, however, uncertainty as to the most effective way of providing support to women who choose to breastfeed their children. A systematic review was performed to describe studies undertaken in this area and to assess the effectiveness of supplementary support.
