This study used a qualitative approach through semi-structured interviews and focus group discussions to explore; a) the current knowledge about early infant feeding practices among first time Filipino mothers, b) the mothers’ realities with regards to their social and cultural context, c) how such context, together with perceptions of risk and benefits, influence decision-making processes of whether or not to breast feed. This study involved 40 first time mothers aged between 17 years and 43 years living in Barangay Payatas, an urban informal settlement located in Quezon City, the second biggest city in Metro Manila region.
