The results revealed that DFM incidence in theBabakan Madang Subdistrict in 2019 was 42%. The determinants of DFM that were significantly related were maternal height (p-value = 0.000), maternalbreastfeeding history (p-value = 0.027), and parity (p-value = 0.049). The analysis results showed that the dominant factor in the prevalence of DFM was thematernal height (OR = 2.704; 95% CI = 1.615-4.528).
