Women often have only limited time to discuss breastfeeding with a health care professional. Breastfeeding hotline service provides guidance and offer information to women who are considering or processing breastfeeding. The aim of present study was to verify the problems that prompt people to call and to estimate the effect of using breastfeeding hotline severe on exclusive breastfeeding outcome. The data was collected from August 2003 to August 2005, details of each call to the hotline were recorded, including: the demographic data and consult issues. Frequency distributions were used to illustrate proportions between the variables, and logistic regression model was used to estimate the effect of using breastfeeding hotline severe on exclusive breastfeeding outcome. All analyses were performed using SAS JMP version 5.1, and P<.05 were considered statically significant in all analyses. And regression models were adjusted the parameter estimates appropriately. Of the 2820 first time callers, 935 had subsequent calls (33.2%). Each day, approximately 25.25 callers receive help from 2 well-trained staff. The mean consult time for each first call was 21.79 minutes (mode 20, SD=10.093, Maximum=120), and for each subsequent call was 15.87 minutes (mode 20, SD=10.90, Maximum=200). Suckle function (22.4%) and breast problems (22.6%) were the top two reasons for call-in. Among 2635 callers, if the birth hospital was BFHI proved to be a significant predictor for exclusive breastfeeding (weight coefficient = 0.41; SE = 0.086; c12= 22.77; P<0.001, odds ratio=1.51; 95%CI=0.24-0.58). The result could provide the evidence for future breastfeeding promotion strategies modification.
