The 2010 Australian National Infant Feeding Survey (ANIFS) gathered information about infant feeding practices and attitudes from a sample of mothers and carers in Australia. The survey gathered information about the prevalence and duration of breastfeeding and collected information on other foods consumed by infants. The survey also gathered information about barriers to initiating and continuing breastfeeding and gathered information about perinatal depression.
