The current research investigated the relationship between breastfeeding (BF) duration and maternal quality of life (QOL). Mothers with higher QOL were more likely to breastfeed for a longer period. Physical health scores of young and older BF mothers were significantly lower than those in the general population. Lower scores in psychological health were associated with older BF mothers. Findings are an important step in the health promotion of mothers and infants.
