Women’s experiences of formula feeding their infants: an interpretative phenomenological study

formula are alarming. 4 , 5 , 6 , 11 , 16 , 17 This rate is far below the WHO recommendation that infants should be fed exclusively with breast milk until the age of 6 months. 14 An even greater concern is the fact that the breastfeeding rate in Hong Kong decreases significantly once the infant has been discharged and this rate is among the lowest in the world. 6 There have been few studies on the reasons why many Hong Kong mothers formula feed their babies. From a public health perspective, it is important to understand these issues so that health professionals and
