Abstract: 

Breast feeding is very effective on infants' good health both mentally and physically. It prevents children from dying of malnutrition, respiratory infection and diarrhea which are the main causes of death among them. Up to now, little attention has been paid to the relation between breast-feeding and the type of delivery. Regarding the increasing number of cesarean childbirth, the relation deserves special attention. So the aim of this research is to study it statistically.
The present study is descriptive-analytic. First , 400 mothers out of those who did not have relative or absolute prohibition of breast-feeding and whose infants were 4 months old or even older and had no difficulty in their sucking reflection with explained or unexplained causes were randomly chosen from 10 health care centers out of 28 in Hamadan. (200 mothers with natural childbirth - 200 with cesarean childbirth). The data including age, parity, education, receiving appropriate instruction in breast-feeding, occupation, type of delivery and breast-feeding success were collected using the patients' files or through interview.
The two groups had no significant difference in their ages, parity and education. Appropriate instruction of the group with natural childbirth was 95% and in caesarian group was 85%. Breast feeding success among mothers with natural child birth was 81% (163 persons) and in comparison with (64% 129 persons) cesarean group was quite significant. Moreover, the breast-feeding failure among mothers who had natural childbirth (11.5%, 23 persons) had been mainly occurred after exclusively breast-feeding for 3-4 months while the majority of mothers with cesarean delivery (75%, 50 persons) had failed to breast-feed their infants exclusively in less than 2 months.
Natural childbirth and instruction of mothers had considerable effect on breast-feeding success for four or more months.
