Resumen

Background: The aim of this study was to assess the association between exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) and some factors that may influence breastfeeding in a closely related population attending a private hospital sponsored by a major Mexican brewing company. Materials and methods: We carried out a retrospective hospital-based unmatched case-control study. A sample of 124 mother-newborn couples was interviewed in a private medical unit in Monterrey, Mexico, from January 2001 to January 2002. The association between EBF and 11 explanatory factors was analyzed by logistic regression analysis. Results: Counseling and early contact between mother-newborn couples were positively associated with EBF. Conclusion: Counseling and early contact improve EBF practice. We believe these two practices would favor better adherence to EBF in other populations.
