In Haiti, initiation of breastfeeding is high, but early mixed feeding is the norm. In a situation of crisis, mothers´ worries about insufficiency of breast milk, disruption of social networks and free unmonitored distribution of breast milk substitutes impact feeding practices. This study was conducted to explore the attitudes, practices and understandings of breastfeeding in the post-earthquake situation in Haiti.
