The need for effective interventions to encourage and support
optimal breastfeeding practices has been established.
The previous paper in this issue discusses the range of potential
factors that influence breastfeeding practices. This
article provides an overview of the potential interventions
that address these factors. It also summarises the findings
of an evaluation of systematic reviews and meta-analyses of
interventions that has recently been published in the report
‘Overview of recent reviews of interventions to promote and
support breastfeeding’.
