Abstract

Background: Suboptimal breastfeeding practices among infants and young children <24 months of age are associated with elevated risk of pneumonia morbidity and mortality. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to quantify the protective effects of breastfeeding exposure against pneumonia incidence, prevalence, hospitalizations and mortality.  The results of this paper were used to estimate the effects of breastfeeding on morbidity and mortality of pneumonia.
