Abstract

Objective: A triennial observation of breastfeeding prevalence at 3 and 5 months of age promoted by the Emilia Romagna Region in order evaluate and programme public health interventions. Method: A prevalence study through a survey made to mothers during the first and second vaccine session in public health offices of the Emilia-Romagna Region. This study uses WHO's definitions and recall periods for breastfeeding prevalence studies and investigates also other variables such as sleeping position. Results: In respect to the 1999 observation, breastfeeding prevalence has improved with an absolute increase of "complete" breastfeeding (exclusive + predominant) at 3 months and 5% at 5 months. 13% of interviewed women are not Italian. The most represented nationalities are Eastern Europe/ex USSR nations (4%) and North Africa (3.6%). Conclusions: Complete breastfeeding prevalence in Emilia-Romagna is in slow but constant increase in the last years. These data are nevertheless still low in respect to comparable ones obtained from other Italian regions (Friuli Venezia Giulia) and very distant from WHO's aims. Women coming from other nations compared to Italian women attend less health care preventive services during pregnancy (14 vs 40%, p >0.0001).
