  1. Exclusive breast-feeding duration is associated with attitudinal, socioeconomic and biocultural determinants in three Latin American Countries.

    Article - En anglais

    International health organizations have recommended exclusive breast-feeding (EBF) (i.e., breast milk as the only source of food) as the optimal infant feeding method during the first 4-6 mo of life.

    Therefore, it is important to document the determinants of EBF in different populations.

    Low-income urban women from Brazil (n=446,2 maternity wards), Honduras (n=1582,3 maternity wards) and Mexico (n=765,3 maternity wards) were interviewed at birth and in their homes at 1 mo and 2-4 mo after delivery.

    Multivariate survival analyses (Cox model) indicated that planned duration of EBF (all 3 countries), having a female infant, and not being employed (Brazil and Honduras), lower socioeconomic status (Honduras and Mexico) and higher birth weight (control hospital in Brazil and Honduras) were positively associated (P ¾ 0.10) with EBF.

    Women who delivered in the maternity wards that had more developed breast-feeding promotion programs were more successful with EBF.

    The association between maternal education and EBF was modified by the maternity ward in Mexico and Honduras.

    Being =18 y and having a partner living (Brazil) or not (Mexico) living at home were positively associated with EBF.

    These findings can contribute toward the design of EBF promotion efforts in Latin America.
