Abstract

Complete breastfeeding is strongly recommended by nutritionists around the
world as none of the formula can replace the baby's immune protection provided
by colostrum produced during the first few days after birth. It is so beneficial for
the development of the baby. In addition, it is the first immunization received by
the baby since it contains high anti-infective substances up to 17 times more than
mature milk. The coverage of exclusive breastfeeding in Riau in 2016 was
39.7%, still low compared to the 2016 strategic plan target of 42%. This study
aimed to determine the factors associated with the administration of colostrum to
newborns. This descriptive analytic research used a cross sectional design
conducted at PMB Dince Safrina of Pekanbaru City from September 2017 to
June 2018. The sample size was 42 selected using accidental sampling. Data
analysis used Chi Square. The results indicated that there was a relationship of
family support (p = 0.02), socio-cultural (0.03), and education (p = 0.02) to
colostrum administration. It is recommended to the midwife to always provide
information to pregnant women about the importance of colostrum for the baby
and motivate the mother to give colostrum to newborn at the time of delivery.
