The survey

  • The Spanish Society of Outpatient Pediatry and Family Medicine surveyed more than 1000 mothers

The Spanish Society of Outpatient Pediatry and Family Medicine carried out the survey using a series of closed questions which were answered by more than a thousand mothers across the country's autonomous communities.

Aged between 18 and 45, the average age was 36. The proportion of first-time and experienced mothers was equal (501 participants vs 502) and they all had children aged five years or lower.

Mothers with children suffering either chronic or mental illnesses, as well as those with disabilities, were excluded from the survey.
