  1. Health-enhancing behaviors correlated with breastfeeding among a National sample of mothers.

    Article - En anglais

    Participation in health-enhancing behaviors not only influences the health of the mother, but of the newborn child as well.

    Characteristics of the mother, especially with regard to the practice of health-enhancing behaviors, have typically been excluded from studies examining breastfeeding.

    The purpose of this study was to identify health-enhancing behaviors correlated with breastfeeding among a national sample of mothers.

    The third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES III) provided the sample for this study.

    All mothers between the ages of 17 and 45 (n=578) with children aged 3 or younger at the time of the interview, who breastfed, were included.

    Seven health-enhancing behaviors served as the independent variables in a logistic regression analysis.

    Odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals were calculated from the estimated regression coefficients, and comparison of proportions were made using Pearson chi-square tests of homogeneity.

    Smoking less than 100 cigarettes in a lifetime, consuming five or more fruits and/or vegetables daily, and visiting a dentist annually were significantly associated with breastfeeding among the mothers in this sample.

    The results of this study point to a connection between the health-enhancing behaviors of the mother and breastfeeding.

    This information can be used to help professionals and practitioners gain a clearer picture of the breastfeeding mother. (...)
