Abstract: 
Background: Different societies have different patterns of breast-feeding that is due to their social and cultural backgrounds. Determining this, could help us recognizing factors adversely associated with breast-feeding. Materials and methods: 600 mothers of rural and urban residents who have 12-24-month infants had been enrolled in this cross sectional study. Breast-feeding pattern was determined through survival analysis of non-parametric Kaplen Meier method, whereas factors associated with reduced breast-feeding were determined by Cox Regression Model.Results: Results have revealed that 87% of urban and 89% of rural 12-month infants had taken advantage of breast-feeding. At the end of 24th month, these figures were 18% and 53%, respectively. Thus, there was no significant correlation between urban and rural mothers by the end of 12th month, however after that urban mothers have shown significant decrease in breast-feeding (p=0.04). Multiugravidity and the level of maternal education were adversely correlated with breast-feeding (p=0.03). The later was proved by regression analysis, however, it was coincided with maternal occupation. Having maternal occupation and other variables been ineffective, the risk of reduced breast-feeding was decreased in educated mothers comparing to non-educated ones. The risk of reduced breast-feeding of housewives was decreased by 41% comparing to those working outside (p=0.08). Maternal stress and anxiety have increased the risk of reduced breast-feeding by 67% (p=0.2). There was no significant correlation between maternal age and infant's gender and reduced breast-feeding.Conclusion: Results have revealed relatively high success of rural mothers in breast-feeding. Prepartum education and preparing required facilities could promote breast-feeding.
