Abstract or Summary
  • The study hypotheses, based on sociobiology, were that the more committed and positive the parental relationship, the greater the likelihood of breastfeeding and of later weaning. Data from the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study was used; sample size was 3635, and over half were African- 2merican. In a logistic regression model, women who were cohabiting were significantly less likely to initiate breastfeeding than those who were married but more likely than those who were in a visiting/friendship relationship. In a Cox proportional hazards regression model, women who were cohabiting or in a visiting/friendship relationship were more likely to stop breastfeeding earlier than were married women. Relationship quality was not significant in either regression model. However, in a sub-sample of only African-American women, higher relationship quality was associated with lower odds of breastfeeding initiation. In a sub-sample of married women, higher relationship quality was associated with reduced odds for early breastfeeding cessation.
