Abstract

Ten years after the German political reunification, specific lifestyle habits still vary between the former Western (FRG) and Eastern (GDR) sectors of Germany. We have analysed data from the first nationwide SuSe Study on breastfeeding 1997-1998 (n = 1593 healthy, term German infants) stratified ina Western (80.3%) and Eastern (19.7%) subgroup. In the Eastern subgroup, breastfeeding was higher for the first 2 wk but decreased more rapidly thereafter. The adjusted relative risk (odds ratios, OR) for short-term breastfeeding was strongly associated (OR >2) with maternal age, supplementary feeding, single parent status, maternal educational status, breastfeeding problems and partner's attitude towards breastfeeding. In the multivariate model, not the geographical location where the mother grew up but the different distribution of risk factors was associated with short-term breastfeeding. Moreover, mothers from both the Western and Eastern sectors mentioned different reasons for giving up breastfeeding. Conclusion: More breastfeeding promotion is necessary for women from the former GDR.
