Association between breastfeeding and select chronic conditions among off-reserve First Nations, Métis and Inuit children in Canada: CS75-006/2017-16E-PDF

"This paper examines associations between breastfeeding and select chronic conditions—asthma/chronic bronchitis and chronic ear infections—among off-reserve First Nations, Métis and Inuit children in Canada aged 1 to 5 years. Data are from the 2006 Aboriginal Children’s Survey, and each Aboriginal group was studied separately. Two aspects of breastfeeding are examined: feeding history (e.g. bottle-fed, breastfed, or both) and duration of breastfeeding"--Overview of the study, p. 1.
