"Introduction: Hospitals are in a unique position to promote, protect, and support breastfeeding. However, the association between in-hospital events and breastfeeding success within population-based samples has not been well studied.
Materials and Methods: A stratified (by education and birth weight) systematic sample of 5,770 mothers taking part in the Utah Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System, 20122015, were included. Mothers, 24 months postpartum, completed the 82-item questionnaire, including if they had ever breastfed their new baby, and if so, current breastfeeding status. Relationships between in-hospital experiences and breastfeeding termination and duration were evaluated via Poisson and Cox proportional hazard regression models, respectively, adjusting for other in-hospital experiences, maternal age, race/ethnicity, maternal education, marital status, smoking, physical activity, delivery method, pregnancy complications, and length of hospital stay.
Results: Of all, 94.4% of mothers self-reported breastfeeding initiation, of whom 18.8% had breastfed Conclusions: Encouraging mothers to exclusively breastfeed in the hospital, and reducing gift packs containing pacifiers and formula, may be key areas United States hospitals can focus on to increase breastfeeding success. Prospective assessment in other geographical regions is needed to corroborate these findings."
