A total of 358 post-partum women with neonates, some who breastfed (77.9%) and some who didn't (21.5%), participated in the present study. The mean age of the subjects was 29.34 years (SD = 4.64; min = 15; max = 43). While the majority (77.9%) of women breastfed their infant at birth, 48.6% had stopped at 6 months and 70.0% stopped by 10 months. The number of months sisters breastfed, the interval of breastfeeding immediately post-partum, and the number of visits to the pediatrician in the first year of the infant's life all were significantly different between the groups. A stepwise backward discriminant analysis revealed that correct group classification could be achieved at nearly 82% between groups who breastfed and those that didn't.
