Seventy-five percent of women should be breastfeeding in the early postpartum period according to the Healthy People 2010 goals. The promotion of breastfeeding is a goal of a Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program in a large, Northeastern Ohio city. The purpose of this evaluation study was to determine if women enrolled in the WIC program that initially breastfed continued to breastfeed in the early postpartum period (2-4 weeks). A retrospective chart review of 164 women who enrolled in the WIC program from October 1, 1999 to September 30, 2000 was performed using and investigator developed Chart Review Guide. Analysis of the data demonstrated that 65% of the women continued to breastfeed in the early postpartum period. The WIC program did not meat the goal of 75% women breastfeeding in the early postpartum period. The reasons given for early weaning include infant refusing to breastfeed, not having enough breast milk, the mother was returning to work or school, the mother wanted to wean, or she was on medication that was contraindicated for breastfeeding, and the infant was hospitalized.
