ULUNQUE-UNZUETA, Alvaro et al. Knowledge on Breast Feeding Of Mothers at Pacata and Jaihuayco Health Centers from 2008 To 2009. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.2, pp.73-76. ISSN 1817-7433.

This study aims assessing the knowledge, attitude and practice on breastfeeding in the Health Centers in Jaihuayco and Pacata, because breast milk is the ideal food to promote development and neonatal growth during the first 4 to 6 months. This is a cross sectional study, through surveys where we studied a total sample of 40 mothers, 17 mothers attending the Centro de Salud Tupuraya during the months of August through September 2008 and 23 mothers attending the CS Jaihuayco during the months of August and September of 2009. Some results obtained from the mothers showed that 45% do not know the exclusive period of time of BF, 40% provide breastfeeding with cow's milk or formula during the time of exclusive breastfeeding, 57.5% consume alcoholic beverages during the lactation period and 30% suffer clinical complications in the mammary gland during lactation. The knowledges, attitudes and practices on breastfeeding that mothers have are insufficient and inadequate, so this work based on its findings proposes to conduct studies to see whether to do a training program on breast­feeding in mothers who attend different hospitals or health centers in Cochabamba by students enrolled in the 1 st and 2nd academic year of medical career in the áreas of Social and Preventive Medicine.
