Relationship between mother's attitudes toward breast feeding and types of feeding practices

, : Relationship between mother's attitudes toward breast feeding and types of feeding practices. Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand 63(10): 548-552

210 mothers who attended the Well Baby Clinic at the Ramathibodi Hospital in Thailand were interviewed in order to assess the degree to which maternal attitudes toward breast feeding determined infant feeding patterns. Information on background characteristics, feeding practices, and attitudes toward breast and bottle feeding was collected. Each respondent was given a breast feeding attitude score on the basis of their agreement or disagreement with 36 statements. 73.38% of the mothers breast fed their infants and 26.6% of the mothers bottlefed their infants. All of the mothers had positive attitudes toward breast feeding but those who breast fed their infants had significally more positive attitudes than those who did not breast feed their infants had significally more positive attitudes than those who did not breast feed their infants. Education had a significant impact on feeding patterns. 86.84% of the mothers with a primary education, 63.75% of the mothers with a secondary education, and 42.11% of the mothers with a college education breast fed their infants; however, among post graduate women 82.86% breast fed their babies. There were no significant differences between women who breastfed and those who bottle fed their babies in terms of maternal age, residence, occupation, and economic status. Duration of breast feeding was brief for most of the mothers. By the end of the 2nd month only 15.6% of the mothers continued to breast feed. Most of the women stopped because they had to resume working, their milk supply was deficient, or they were not healthy enough to continue breast feeding. Findings were presented in tabular form.
