This presentation will review various cultures (Latina, Native American, and East Asian) and discuss the influences of race, culture, and religion on breastfeeding decisions. As countries, including the U.S., become increasingly diverse, pediatricians working with mothers and babies need to be aware of cultural practices that can affect decisions about infants and thus frame their health advice and guidance within the context of cultural norms, while being competent and respectful.
