ALVAREZ CABALLERO, Mileydis et al. Factors influencing in the precocious breastfeeding discontinuation in nursing infants of a Basic Group of Work. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2017, vol.39, n.4, pp.884-893. ISSN 1684-1824.

Introduction: there are several benefits offered by maternal breastfeeding, among them, the decrease of mortality and morbidity. Nevertheless, the precocious breastfeeding discontinuation - before the recommended time- is still a serious problem. Objective: to identify the factors influencing precocious breastfeeding discontinuation in nursing infants. Materials and Methods: a descriptive, cross-sectional study was carried out in a universe formed by 120 nursing infants who were not under exclusive maternal breastfeeding up to the their sixth month. They belonged to the Basic Group of Work 1, of the Polyclinic “José Martí Pérez”, in Santiago de Cuba. The studied period was the one from January to December 2014. The clinical records of the nursing infants and surveys were used for data collection. The results were tabulated and gathered in statistical tables. Results: multiparous women aged 20-40 years predominated for a 62 %. 27.5 % of them were housewives, and 25.8 % were technicians. 65 % of the women who participated in the study had knowledge on the importance of maternal breastfeeding, but they did not have enough support from the part of their relatives. Most of the children got sick, and 96.6 % suffered acute respiratory diseases. The main cause of the precocious breastfeeding discontinuation was hypogalactia, with 49.1 % Conclusions: the factors influencing in the precocious maternal breastfeeding discontinuation were identified.
