Abstract

 Despite widespread knowledge about BREASTFEEDING benefits for mothers and neonates, duration of BREASTFEEDING is decreasing in most countries. However, lack of knowledge regarding BREASTFEEDING and problems of lactation play a minor role in the discontinuation of BREASTFEEDING in populations around the world that practice prolonged BREASTFEEDING.Some studies have suggested that 95% of pregnant women hope to breastfeed.BREASTFEEDING as it were, has therefore become a major initiative in maternal-child health in the 21st century. Knowledge of when and why women discontinue BREASTFEEDING is crucial to guide interventions aimed at increasing both the initiation and duration of BREASTFEEDING.
