- Give only breast milk for the first six months is recommended for optimizing the infant’s growth and development. In fact, the rate of exclusive breastfeeding in Indonesia is relatively low. This study was aimed to assess the survival probability of exclusive breastfeeding and identify the factors related to early breastfeeding cessation. This study used cross sectional design with sample of 1088 mothers of infants aged 6-12 months. Data were obtained from The Indonesian Family Life Survey (IFLS) wave 5 that conducted in 2014-2015 and analyzed using survival analysis. The Life Table showed that half of exclusive breastfeeding cessation occurred in the first month of infant age, while the exclusive breastfeeding survival probability was 21.3%. The median duration of breastfeeding in Indonesia was 2.03 months. Cox Regression revealed that mother’s education and place of delivery were associated with early breastfeeding cessation (p<0.05). The promotion programs of exclusive breastfeeding should be increase since the duration of breastfeeding among Indonesian mothers was relatively short.
