IMPACT OF MATERNAL BREASTFEEDING PRACTICES ON NUTRITIONAL STATUS IN CHILDREN UNDER TWO YEARS IN BURUNDI

Current breastfeeding patterns remain well below the level recommended by WHO and UNICEF in the following world: initiating breastfeeding immediately after the birth of the child; Exclusive breastfeeding up to 6 months; Give a complementary food starting from six months; The child should continue breastfeeding up to two years or beyond. In Burundi, there is some contrast between breastfeeding, which is clearly at an acceptable level, and the rate of chronic malnutrition is increasing, the age of the child reaching 45% between 9-11 months (DHS 2010). It is in a context that a cross-sectional, descriptive and analytical study with a 95% significance level was carried out with the aim of measuring the impact of breastfeeding practices on the nutrition of children under two years in Burundi.
