A birth cohort study of 4912 Brazilian infants showed that the incidence and duration of breast feeding for children delivered vaginally and for those born by elective caesarean section were similar. Those delivered by emergency caesarean section, however, were not breast fed for as long. This difference persisted after adjustment for confounding variables.
