Publisher: World Health OrganizationPublished Time: World Health OrganizationPages: 53The longstanding debate over the optimal duration of exclusive breastfeeding has centered on the so-called "weanling's dilemma" in developing countries: the choice between the known protective effect of exclusive breastfeeding against infectious morbidity and the (theoretical) insufficiency of breast milk alone t......

The central theme of welfare reform is the requirement that welfare recipients engage in work activities. In many states this requirement applies even to mothers whose children are just a few months old. Holding a job increases the costs of breastfeeding, which in turn could reduce the propensity of new mothers to breastfeed their children. The authors examine whether the work requirements adopted......

This paper uses unique data from the 1976-77 and 1988-89 Malaysian Family Life Surveys (MFLSs) to address two questions: 1) Are the reported reasons for not initiating breastfeeding or for stopping breastfeeding reliable based on indices of agreement of responses between the two surveys and/or conventional multivariate analyses of overall versus reason-specific breastfeeding duration? 2) What do w......

A growing body of research indicates that both mothers and children benefit from breastfeeding. However, despite slowly rising breastfeeding rates, a large fraction of mothers do not breastfeed or breastfeed for a shorter period than the recommended six months. Furthermore, some groups of mothers are more likely to breastfeed than others. This dissertation seeks to understand these breastfeeding p......

Retrospectively recorded breastfeeding durations show pronounced heaping at 12, 24, and 36 months. Using the interview-reinterview component of the Malaysian Family Life Survey (MFLS), this paper shows that the heaped responses are not drawn from adjacent durations, as is often assumed in the literature. The paper then proposes and estimates a joint model of breastfeeding duration and the recorded......

Data from the Malaysian Family Life Survey show an increase in the percentage of infants breastfed, at least initially, from 75 percent in the period from 1970 to 1974, to 79 percent in the period from 1975 to 1977. Contrary to what would be expected if Malaysia were following the trends observed in the United States and Western Europe, the increase has occurred among poor and uneducated women as ......
