  1. Maternal activity budgets : feasibility of exclusive breastfeeding for six months among urban women in Honduras.

    Article - En anglais

    Although exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months is likely to be beneficial for infant health, mothers often cite time pressures as a reason to introduce other foods.

    Using 12-hr in-home observations at 19 and 24 wk postpartum, we compared maternal activity budgets and time spent breastfeeding among low-income, urban mothers not employed outside the home who exclusively breastfed (EBF) or gave other foods in addition to breast milk (BF+SF).

    Breastfeeding time was similar between groups (averaging approx 75 min/l2 hr) except that multiparous EBF mothers at 24 wk spent more time breastfeeding their infants than did BF+SF mothers.

    Primiparous women tended to spend less time at household chores and child care than multiparous women.

    Of the BF+SF mothers, 60% said that breastfeeding was'somewhat'or'very'time-demanding (vs 15% of EBF mothers), 49% said that it interfered with other activities (vs 6% of EBF mothers), and 26% said that they gave other foods to extend the time between breastfeeds.

    Although many of the BF+SF mothers knew that giving foods may increase infant illness, there were cultural pressures not to exclusively breastfeed.

    For example, many introduced solids to their infants prior to 6 months because they believed that infants should'learn'how to eat other foods, to'acclimate'the stomach and learn to differentiate flavors.

    We conclude that time constraints are not a barrier to exclusive breastfeeding in this population, although they may be perceived as a barrier.
