Effectiveness of breastfeeding education on the weight of child and self-efficacy of mothers
Mothers who have a higher self efficacy are more likely to breastfeed exclusively for a longer duration than mothers with low self efficacy

The Health Belief Model was used to assess mother’s attitudes about physician roles in child health promotion.

Four constructs were used from the health belief model and questions were adopted for each construct.
