From MoBa cohort

What influences how long mothers fully breast-feed?

Ninety-nine percent of the mothers initiated breast-feeding and 80 percent of the infants were still breast-fed at 6 months, although only 2 percent were fully breast-fed at 6 months. At four months of age 87 percent of the children were breast-fed, but only 44 percent were predominantly breast-fed. This was the prevalence of full and partial breast-feeding among participants in the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa) during 2002 – 2005.
