OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine whether the breastfeeding problems by Taiwanese and American mothers differ at 3 weeks postpartum, as measured by Breastfeeding Experience Scale (BES). METHODS: Seventy-two Taiwanese and 55 American's primiparas experiencing spontaneous vaginal deliveries were completed a questionnaire on sociodemorgraphic characteristics and breastfeeding problems. RESULTS: Taiwanese mothers had higher score in "worry baby was not getting enough milk" (p=0.02), "worry about baby's weight gain" (p=0.007), "difficulty combining work and breastfeeding" (p=0.001). Respectively, American had higher in "sore nipple" (p<0.0001), "feeling tense and overwhelmed" (p=0.003). CONCLUSION: These results suggest that difference exist in the breastfeeding experience by Taiwanese and American women. The finding should be followed up with more detailed studies to identify its cause and possible interventions
