Descriptive statistics is the method used in interpreting and analyzing the data gathered. Purposive sampling was done to obtain the actual respondents, a non-probability sampling method with no required randomization. This research assessed the knowledge, beliefs and practices regarding breastfeeding of public elementary school teachers aged 21-45 years old, with children within the age brackets of 1-3, 4-6 and 7 and above years old. Questionnaire was adapted and modified from Samaco’s study “Knowledge, Beliefs and Practices of Mothers Regarding Breastfeeding”. The study concluded that; 1) The total population, a majority of the teachers belong to the 21 to 25 years old bracket, have 1 to 3 children, married and have a monthly family income of P35,001 to P50,000; 2) The respondents have a great amount of knowledge, beliefs and practices with regard to breastfeeding; 3) The results show that the teachers’ knowledge, beliefs and practices regarding breastfeeding are affected by age, number of children, civil status and monthly family income.
