Our data replicate our previous finding that among women planning to breastfeed for at least six months, those with delayed perception ofthe onset of lactation are more likely to discontinue BF sooner than their counterparts with early perception of OL 3. Future studies are needed in different cultures and settings to conclusively validate MP as a marker ofOL.
