According to WHO standards, at least up to 6 months of age you need to breastfeed. According to the study, in Ukraine up to this age only 50.9% of babies eat milk from their mothers (according to mama-pediatr.com).
American pediatricians in the research process identified the factors that are associated with the duration of breastfeeding. 1457 women before and after childbirth, as well as for 1 year after childbirth answered questions about breastfeeding.
And it turned out that attachment to the breast during the first hour after birth, the lack of feeding with baby food in the hospital and not using a pacifier are factors that contribute to long-term breastfeeding.
Scientists have also managed to find out that married women who have previously given birth have been breastfed for the longest time. Smoking moms and obese women are more likely to translate their baby into artificial compounds early.
