Abstract:

Exclusive breastfeeding is important to reduce death and pain rates among babies, which are high in Indonesia. Exclusive breastfeeding is still very low in Madura (38%). The aim of this research was to explain the factors related to maternal attainment of exclusive breastfeeding. This research was a cross-sectional study. Sampling was conducted using a purposive sampling technique. The instrument was a questionnaire which was tested for validity and reliability and given to 110 mothers who had babies aged 6-12 months in the working area of Sreseh Health Center, Sampang Regency. Most of respondents (59.09%) did not provide exclusive breastfeeding. Maternal attainment of exclusive breastfeeding was only in 19.09%; there was a relationship between family support, economic status, infant care, and health services (p=0.000) with maternal attainment of exclusive breastfeeding. Economic Status (x2=80,670 > 9,488) and health services (x2=41,594 > 5.99) had a strong relationship with maternal attainment of exclusive breastfeeding compared to other factors. Economic status and health care were the basis of improving maternal attainment of exclusive breastfeeding.
