dc.description.abstract Eight hundred and thirty mothers and their children aged 1 to 5 years were studied to identify the determinants of breastfeeding initiation and perseverance in relation to hospital policies. Only 18.3percent of the mothers initiated breastfeeding within half an hour after birth. Mothers whose baby was brought to them every 3 hours or less were 2.5 times and mothers whose infants were brought to them for night feedings were 3 times more likely to initiate breastfeeding a few hours after birth. Mother's occupational status and whether she was breastfed were significantly associated with breastfeeding duration. © 2005 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
