This qualitative study provides an insight into how seven women experienced breastfeeding within the social context of contemporary society. It presents an analysis of their understanding of the meaning of breastfeeding, and the interactions and problem-solving methods they used as they learnt to breastfeed. Findings suggest breastfeeding is multifaceted and the influence of significant others, the introduction of solid foods and the choice of where breastfeeding advice is sought is discussed.
