Abstract

Although more women are initiating breast-feeding, few continue for more than 1-3 months into the postpartum period. The current report studied the relationship of attitudes, social support, experimental and demographic variables, and knowledge to length of breast-feeding. A total of 102 women were included in the study and were followed for 1 year. Perceived attitudes toward breast-feeding, selected demographic variables, and past experiences were related to length of breast-feeding.
