Breastfeeding is the recommended method of infant feeding and the
benefits of breastfeeding are widely known. Yet, many mothers do not
breastfeed their babies at all and a short period of partial breastfeeding
is common among women who nurse their infants. Characteristics of mothers,
infants, families, health care providers, health systems, and communities
have all been identified as factors influencing these persistent trends.
The Ecological Reformulation of the Theory of Planned Behavior for
Breastfeeding, based on seminal works by Bronfenbrenner and Ajzen, is
proposed as a unifying model. The Ecological Reformulation of the Theory
of Planned Behavior posits an individual, rational, motivational process
for mothers' individual breastfeeding intentions and behaviors placed
within the context of family, community, and health systems. Key variables
at the individual and contextual levels are described, and connections
between the levels are identified. A series of studies designed to
elucidate concepts and relationships in the theory is summarized and
critiqued with respect to multi-level populations, measurement challenges,
and statistical evaluation. The overall theory is testable using
hierarchical linear structural equation models that link variables within
and across levels of the model. The Ecological Reformulation of the Theory
of Planned Behavior for Breastfeeding can be used to plan and evaluate
breastfeeding research, systems of clinical care, educational curricula,
and policy designed to protect, promote, and support breastfeeding.
