↵a Adjusted odds ratio (aOR) and 95% Wald confidence interval (CI) based on logistic regression; referent group, experienced all 6 “Baby-Friendly” hospital practices.

↵b Adjusted odds ratio (aOR) and 95% Wald confidence interval (CI) based on logistic regression; analysis controlling for child gender, maternal age, maternal race, maternal education, household income, marital status, number of previous children, and number of cigarettes smoked.

↵c Adjusted odds ratio (aOR) and 95% Wald confidence interval (CI) based on logistic regression; analysis includes those variables in model 2 plus number of friends and relatives who breastfed, mother's prenatal intentions to work after birth, and prenatal attitudes toward breastfeeding (ie, formula as good as breast milk; if child breastfed, less likely to be obese).
