Background and Objective: Continuity of breast-feeding up to 6 months may be associated with some challenges for some mothers. Probably, the maternal personal characteristics such as their emotions can change the breast-feeding patterns. The aim of this study was to determine maternal affectivity and the pattern of breast-feeding.

Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, affectivity and beast-feeding patterns of 412 mothers was surveyed by Watson's PANAS-X and researcher made questionnaires and through face to face interviews. Systematic random sampling was done by using health care centers list in last 6 months. Data was analyzed using chi-square test, t-test, Fisher's exact and one way ANOVA test.

Results: Overall 69.5% mothers had exclusive breast-feeding for 6 months. Mothers who had preterm infants had higher mean score of negative affectivity (p=0.042) and those who had exclusively breast-feeding had lower mean score of negative affectivity (p=0.005). The mean scores of positive affectivity in mothers who had been started the first breast-feeding during the first hour after birth, were higher (p= 0.040).

Conclusion: Mothers with negative affectivity might be considered as a predictive factor for her breast-feeding performance.
