  1. aStandardised rates and ratios were calculated by controlling for residential region and educational level. The entire sample (n = 777 for non-EIBF and n = 776 for non-EBF) was used as the reference population for standardisation

  3. cVaginal delivery
  4. dCaesarean section
  5. eNon-EIBF: Initiation of breastfeeding ≥ 1 h following birth or no breastfeeding
  6. fNon-EBF: Any nutrition other than breast milk during the first three days following birth or no breastfeeding
