The samples weere selected based on probality Sampling.  The measurement of the percentage of body’s fat of breastfeeding aterm infant applying Bioelectrical  Impedance Analysis (BIA). The measurement of fat content and breast milk protein with Human Milk Analizer Data Analysis of regression linear and Spearman.

The results of the study show that there was a weak negative correlation and significant between the percentage of body’s fat of breastfeeding mother to aterm infant of breast milk fat content (r = - 0.33 ; p = 0.02). There was a  very weak negative correlation and insignificant of breast milk protein content (r = - 0.33 ; p = 0.02).
