For sample children less than eighteen years old who were ever breastfed (BREFEV), BREFSTOPR reports the age at which the child completely stopped breastfeeding in weeks or months.


The Field Representative's Manuals for 1981 notes that breastfeeding includes that given by a wet nurse or if the mother's milk was given to the child through a bottle, and the interviewer should footnote the situation (either "wet nurse," "bottle," or "natural").

A similar set of variables, BREFSTOPNOand BREFSTOPTP are available for 1985 and 1990.


This variable only exists in 1981.
