Background and Objectives: Breastfeeding is one of the key strategies for growth and survival of children, as it is rich in nutrients and better than any other food which ensures the growing child. However, statistics have reported that a lot of women avoid exclusive breastfeeding. The aim of this research was to assess the relationship between demographic factors, healthy family and social health with exclusive breastfeeding.

Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 375 women referred to Kashani hospital in the city of Jiroft in 2014 were selected via simple random sampling and completed demographic, healthy family and social health questionnaires. Independent t-test, chi-square test, Fisher's exact test and odds ratio­ (OR) were applied to analyze the data.

Results: The results showed that exclusive breastfeeding was more prevalent among women aged ≤30 years and housewives (p<0.001). With increasing the score of healthy families and its dimensions including communication with family, acceptance of death and separation, conflict resolution without stress, sensitivity to understanding each other, and building trust in people, the probability of exclusive breastfeeding by mothers increased (p<0.001). With increasing the score of social health and its dimensions including social acceptance, social actualization, social conformity and social participation, exclusive breastfeeding by mothers also increased (p<0.001).

Conclusion: With regard to the relationship between healthy family and social health with exclusive breastfeeding, health education about healthy family and social health may help to increase the rate of exclusive breastfeeding.
