Early Initiation of Breastfeeding Associated with Longer Breastfeeding Duration in Hong Kong Chinese Women pp. 261-271 $100.00
Authors:  (Ying Lau, School of Health Sciences, Macao Polytechnic Institute, Macau Sar, China)
Abstract:
A population based sample of 610 mothers completed the questionnaire at 6 weeks of delivery. The objectives of the study reported herein were (1) to estimate the prevalence of feeding duration at different period of time among 610 pregnant women in five regional hospitals and (2) to identify the correlates associated with duration of breastfeeding. The results show that the prevalence rates of breastfeeding duration are 52.3% within 1 week, 10.3% from 1 to 3 weeks, 10.7% from 3 weeks to 6 weeks and 26.7% over 6 weeks, respectively. Age, born in Hong Kong, length of marriage and frequency of communication with own parent, number of babies and early breastfeeding were significantly difference in four groups by the Mann-Whitney Test (p < 0.05). Women who had early breastfeeding within 30 minutes were significantly more likely to opt for longer duration of breastfeeding in a two-level multinomial logistic regression model. These findings suggest that effective breastfeeding promotion should target the correlates of feeding duration.
