This study aims to explore breastfeeding and complementary feeding practices of mothers in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and its relation to the early life determinants of obesity and non-communicable diseases (NCDs). This research study will follow a prospective cohort approach. Two hundred and fifty mother-infant pairs will be followed for 18 months. The hypothesis of this research study is that exclusive breastfeeding of the infant will provide potential protective effect against cardiometabolic risk factors. This study will also hypothesize that mothers who exclusively breastfeed their newborns would experience greater postpartum weight and body fat loss than mothers who are not breastfeeding.
